Our fees for an undisputed business to business debt

The following costs apply to a claim in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed and does not require enforcement action. Additional work may be necessary if the other party disputes your claim at any point. We will discuss this with you and confirm any revised costs if applicable. The additional work could be on a fixed fee (e.g. if a one-off letter is required) or charged at an hourly rate when more extensive work is needed.

Common Questions & Answers

How quickly will my claim be resolved?

Matters usually take 2-10 weeks from us taking your instructions to receipt of payment from the other side, depending on whether or not it is necessary to issue a claim. This is on the basis that the other side pays promptly upon receipt of judgement in default. If enforcement action is needed, the matter will take longer to resolve.
