We are an English company, are you able to take legal action against a company based in Scotland on our behalf?
We are able to issue court proceedings out of the jurisdiction of the English courts. However, our main aim is to recover the debt without the need for court action.
When should I refer the debt?
The earlier the better, we can adapt our service to meet your own specific needs but we are willing to accept debts of any age on a no collection no fee basis.
In which countries to you operate?
We work in all areas. Our knowledge of the local laws and customs enables us to recover from all countries particularly those countries perceived as difficult ( see our collection rates by country ). If you have a debt to refer but want to discuss matters first we would like to hear from you, contact us today.
I need a company to recover debts from overseas, how do you overcome language barriers?
We have a multi-national team for international collections and knowledge of local culture and laws.
I am owed money but I do not want to lose my customers.
Brookes Bates offer a bespoke debt collection and account management service which is adaptable to the specific needs of our clients. Please call and discuss your requirements with us.
I only have one bad debt, are you interested in recovering that and how much will it cost?
We accept single debts for collection on a no collection, no fee basis. We do not ask for any joining fees or upfront payments, our commission rates are based on the country the debt is based in and we have your debtors pay you directly, we do not bank your funds.
