As late payment problems consider to plague small businesses, we have teamed up with a leading debt recovery service to ensure that our visitors to help ensure that their invoices are paid.
Late paying clients
Since the start of the economic downturn, late payment problems have rocketed.
For many small companies in the current economic environment, just one single late payment can have a significant effect on cash flow.
As a result, we’ve teamed up with a leading debt recovery firm to help any Bytestart visitors who are affected by late payment problems.
A business partner put us in touch with Safe Collections after one of our customers failed to settle a series of invoices, totalling over £2000. Having called and emailed the client many times over a period of six months, we finally lost patience.
We forwarded details of the late invoices and client contact details, and the debt recovery company sent out an “appropriately worded letter”. Literally the next day, we received an apologetic phone call, and the full sum owed arrived via CHAPS in our business bank account within a matter of hours.
As a result of our experience, and those of several business partners, we’re happy to recommend this service to our own visitors.
You can find out full details of the debt recovery service here.
Your late paying customer/client will be sent an initial letter requesting payment, which will typically be followed up with a series of professional telephone calls and other measures.
Unlike many recovery services, there are no upfront payments.
As an example of costs, for invoices up to 2 months late, you will pay 5% of the invoice value, and for 2-6 months, 10% of the invoice value.
