Collection Agencies are a real asset to small business owners. Most small businesses don't have the time or resources to dedicate to collection old debts. Spending time and energy with Debt Collection only serves to detract from the time that is need for day to day operations of the business and earning new money as well as taking care of the loyal paying customers.
Debt Collection Agencies will act on your behalf and collect your outstanding debts. If you are tired of the overdue debts owed to you and your business, you have a lot more options today than years ago. There are many Debt Collection Agencies with staff that specialize in collecting old debts. They have the skills needed for both the negotiating skills needed to make the debtor act and pay the bill, but also the knowledge of the legalities that come into play when trying to collect a debt. Each state has it's own laws, rules, and regulations when it comes to Debt Collection. Why let yourself or your business get sued for improper Debt Collection Practices?
You can hire a Local Collection Agency or an Online Collection Agency to help your business get the money that you have earned and need to maintain your business. Once you have exhausted your options as a business owner and are about to either forget the money you are due or close to suing your client, it's time to hire a specialist. Typically, Collection Agencies, once assigned to collect overdue debts, will keep an agreed upon percent of the amount they are able to collect. The debts they do not collect, you owe nothing for their efforts. Sometimes, (rarely) Collection Agencies will offer to purchase the debts from your company. Usually, Collection Agency fees are around 10% of the money collected. Can you collect the debt for that amount?
Your company needs and deserves the money it is owed. After all you are not a charity operation. Your customers agreed to pay a fee for your products or services and are legally obligated to pay for them. Good luck getting what is due you!
