We operate a range of recovery tools to maximize our performance yield and minimize negative repercussions whilst keeping our clients’ reputations intact.

ABOVE ALL to act as MEDIATORS. Finding common ground with your debtor is the key to final settlement of the debt in the shortest possible time.
From the moment we begin managing your cases, we contact your debtor in a firm manner via written and telephone reminders following a predetermined scenario: notice to pay, final demand, notification of legal proceedings, etc.
Negotiations will also be undertaken with your debtor to set up a scrupulously monitored repayment plan.
An acknowledgement of debt will then be signed to guarantee the validity of your claim.
A home visit is automatically arranged if your debtor ignores our reminders.
This is how we work:

Bank debt (direct debit, consumer credit, loan, etc.) that you want us to handle?
The information we need:
Do you have a dishonored check or draft?
Please note that when a client pays you by check, you have one year from the date of issue in which to cash it. If it is returned unpaid, your bank will send you a notification of refusal including the reason for the refusal, such as insufficient funds, loss, or theft.
Do have an unpaid bill?
In addition to your bill, remember to get your client to sign a purchase order and/or a delivery order and even your terms and conditions.
Do you have unpaid rent?
-The lease signed by the parties.
The occurrence of an outstanding payment may be a sign of deterioration in your client’s cash flow and may possibly be an indication of worse to follow. Therefore, you must remain vigilant.
It may simply be a slip-up by your client but it may also be a sign that they are having trouble in honoring their commitments. It is in your interest to monitor the payment of your bills carefully in order to detect any outstanding payments as soon as possible.
Remember that a request for more time to pay by your client can also have an effect on your cash flow.
