What if you could recover your outstanding accounts free of charge? Would you use a pre-litigation debt recovery company...

Glasgow based commercial debt recovery company Darcey Quigley & Co have applied a real focus on recovering all additional costs from debtors. Working under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Act 1998, they don't only recover your outstanding debt but in the majority of cases are recovering additional interest, compensation and reasonable costs from debtors known as LPI. 

Managing director Lynne Darcey Quigley commented: "Having listened to our clients over the years we fully understand the importance of recovering additional costs from debtors, as in many sales the profit can be minimal.  We have worked tirelessly to achieve higher paid rates on costs. These statistics are incredible and speak for themselves so it makes complete sense to use Darcey Quigley to pursue any overdue invoices”


What can you claim from your debtor?

Interest: You can claim interest at 8% above the Bank of England base rate from the date the invoice is due (at the end of the agreed credit window) to the point when it’s paid. You have up to six years to make that claim.

Compensation: This can be claimed for every overdue invoice – you can even claim it if an invoice has now been paid, providing you’re still within the six-year window.

Reasonable costs: The compensation is intended to cover your costs for recovering the debt but if these exceed the above figures, you can claim what hasn’t been covered.

This could be the cost to your business of implementing credit control procedures and/or hiring a commercial debt recovery agency.

We are achieving amazing results and I know this will continue into 2020 and beyond”
