What is debt recovery?

Chasing for payment from a customer can often be a challenging exercise. Normally, there are relationships to consider and preserve, as well as general goodwill. However, goods and services have been provided and so payment should be a normal and expected part of the commercial transaction.

The impact of late payments to small businesses in Australia exceeds $115 billion a year, with half of all invoices for goods or services paid later than terms that are originally granted. So, when it comes to debt recovery, use an expert debt recovery lawyer to assist you; and an expert firm that understands the process and the potential impact on your business. Remember, debt recovery doesn’t have to be a punitive event, but it should enable both parties to explore intention and align expectations.

To clarify, debt recovery is the process a debt recovery lawyer will use to recover unpaid invoices (or debt) through legal proceedings.

Key Considerations

Below are some basic items to consider. Ensure that you research and negotiate prior to commencing the debt recovery.

  • An agreement for a customer to pay
  • The delivery of a service or product
  • Issuance of an invoice in accordance with the agreement
  • Has the payment period (terms) expired?
  • An attempt to reclaim money owing.

Above all, it is important to know that there is not a ‘one size fits all approach to debt recovery. Use an expert – call Harbourside Legal Commercial today.
