You can continue the collection process after your customers have gone through the whole workflow or perhaps you have certain customers that are still not paying you regardless of how many follow-ups done.
We have integrated services provided by third party debt collection companies so that you can easily go to the next steps.
Letter of Demand
The charge for the letter is AUD$49.00+GST. The letter provides the debtor with seven days to make the payment and is issued by the third party debt collection with their own letterhead.
If the payment is received by your office within seven days, our debt collection partners wont charge any commission.
Our debt collection partners will contact* you after the demand letter has expired to seek your instructions to proceed with debt collection. You should consider proceeding to debt collection if your debtor has not paid or been in contact. .
*The debt collection partner will contact you after this has expired unless you already agreed to proceed with the debt collection process when debt isn't paid within 7 days.
Problem customers can be sent straight to debt collection and our debt collection partner will enact a series of strategies to contact your debtor to recover the money: send a demand letter, emails, SMS, phone calls.
The commission rate is starting from 25 percent on collected (inclusive of all demand letters, phone calls, negotiations, basic location searches, monitoring of payments etc).
