Our Free Final Notice Letter: This letter is produced online by you and is on our letterhead, this is the perfect tool to use after all internal recovery processes have been exhausted. We do not charge commission if you are paid after sending this letter.

Solicitors Letters: If you are not paid after sending our Final Notice Letter, the natural progression is for us to send a solicitors letters (if you are a member, we do not charge you for these letters). We have set up our membership packages to avoid upfront fees on individual debts you ask us to work on. If we have exhausted all avenues and are unable to recover your debt, we will consult with you and close the file with no charge.

We do everything we can to ensure you are paid, and we only charge commission if we are successful in recovering your debt.

Credit Checks Online: when you take on a new client (& you are extending a line of credit) you need to know who you are extending credit to.  Our members have access through the Kearley Lewis client portal to credit checks through Equifax, which assists you to assess your new client and whether you are comfortable in offering credit terms.

Access to our in-house Lawyers: Our members have access to our dispute resolution Lawyers on debt recovery matters.

Bulk debt submissions: for clients who have high volumes of debts to send us, we can easily upload these from an excel spreadsheet.
