How do I check my Debt Collector's credentials?

Debt recovery specialists are typically members of the Credit Services Association (CSA) and fully authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Before you choose a debt collector, remember to read customer testimonials on their website. If they don't have one, ask for the contact details of past clients to ask them yourself.

You can also read customer reviews on their Bark profile.

How do I choose a Debt Recovery Expert?

There are a number of factors that are worth considering when choosing your debt collection expert. These include:

  • Knowledge of industry - Every industry is different from the next with varying challenges and intricacies when it comes to contracts and invoicing. Knowing these variations can make a massive difference when it comes to successfully collecting money.

  • Research - Whilst trading time is not directly correlated to success it can be a good indicator of how successful your expert is and how much experience they have of collecting payments from difficult customers. Take a look at their testimonials, success stories and social media profiles to gauge what others thought about their services.

  • Accreditations - It is wise to check for associations and affiliations with the leading industrial bodies such as the Credit Services Association. It's also worth seeing if they are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

  • Fees - Different debt collection agencies charge different fees for their services. Some will require an upfront payment whilst others will charge a success-based fee. You will want to know exactly what the fee is and how it is paid, especially if your case needs to be escalated to the legal process.

  • Collection methods - Different debt collection agencies favour different methods of recovery. Some will opt for mediation over court proceedings, using their knowledge and reputation to bring positive conclusions to often complex cases pre-legally whilst preserving customer relationships. Others will use a more aggressive approach to collect the payment.

  • Progress tracking - Find out if the debt collection agency offers a portal service where you will be able to log in and track their progress, and if there is a dedicated point of contact who can assist with your enquiries.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local debt collectors listed will give you a reliable and professional service.

What is the difference between a Bailiff and a Debt Collector?

Bailiffs are agents instructed to retrieve debts on behalf of either a creditor or the courts. The biggest and most important difference between debt collectors and bailiffs is that a debt collector has no special legal powers to collect a debt, whereas a bailiff does.

What are the advantages of hiring a Debt Collector?

A debt collection expert can provide a variety of services, including:

  • Experience - The number one benefit of using a debt collector for debt recovery is their experience and knowledge in their field. As a business owner, you may not have any experience or prior knowledge, or even know where to start with handling a late payment.
  • Advice - When you hire a debt recovery specialist, the advice they give you is part of their service. A debt collector will be able to advise you on what is, and what is not, a good path to take if the process goes to court.
  • Results - Debt collectors typically earn their fees from the debt they collect for you. This means that any fees they earn hinge on them being successful with their cases. You are unlikely to hire a debt collector who doesn’t want to work for nothing which makes many debt collectors extremely good at their jobs.
  • Quick Recovery - Having a debt collector calling you or communicating with you in other ways is unnerving for anyone, especially if that agent starts threatening to take your debtor to court. A debtor who knows they owe someone money is more likely to try and reach a beneficial solution for all parties involved, rather than spend time and more money going through the court system.
  • Documentation - Debt collection agencies make notes about everything during a debt collection process. Records are kept and this documentation is fully available to help you prove your claim should you need to go to court.
