We have three tiers of membership to suit all budgets. The level of membership determines the level of commission that will be payable when Kearley Lewis undertakes collections on your behalf.

Our Free Final Notice Letter: This letter is produced online by our members on our letterhead, this is the perfect tool to use after all internal recovery processes have been exhausted. (There is no commission charged on recovery on this letter).

Solicitors Letters: If the debt is not recovered using our Final Notice Letter, the natural progression is our range of debt recovery solicitors letters (we do not charge for these letters). We have set up our recovery process this way to eliminate any upfront fees and charges to our members, if we have exhausted all avenues and are unable to recover your debt we will consult the member and close the file with no charge.

This is why it is in our best interest to recover your debts, as we only get paid commission on what we recover.

Credit Checks Online: when you take on a new client (as with any one extending a line of credit) you need to know who you are extending credit too, our members have access through the Kearley Lewis member section to online credit checks through Veda Advantage, helping you evaluate your new client for credit risk.

Access to our in-house Lawyers: Our members have access to our litigation Lawyers for free advice on debt recovery matters. (This service is limited)

Bulk debt submissions: for clients who have bulk debts set for submission we can arrange for these to be electronically loaded into our system. (This facility is only available for 25 or more debts) formatting restrictions apply.

Debt Recovery Training: we can supply (either by phone or on-site) a training program to help you with your internal recovery processes and also take some of the fear out of making debt recovery phone calls. (Charges will apply)
