  2. Our fees and expenses
    1. Our flat fee packages are clearly set out under each debt recovery solution and are advertised net of Value Added Tax. No further fees, commissions or disbursements will be payable unless you decide to proceed with legal action. In this case, your authority to litigate will be sought and our set fee legal process payment will be authorised before proceeding.
    2. All fees must be paid prior to the commencement of any service provided. Our solutions are usually delivered in-house, with the exception of legal services, which are sub-contracted to our preferred partner(s) as described in clause 1.4.
    3. All pricing information provided by us, and all references in this document to fees, disbursements and other amounts where applicable are exclusive of Value Added Tax unless expressly stated otherwise. Our VAT number is 215252834.
  3. Payment of our Services
    1. Our standard payment method is Debit/Credit Card. In the event that this method is not available, we may accept payment by bank transfer, however our service will only commence once the payment has been received and cleared in full.
    2. Unlike many companies, we are committed to absorbing the full cost of debit and credit card payment processing to ensure our set fee packages are clear and transparent, however, as these charges are outside of our control, we reserve the right to review this process in the future.
    3. Payment for additional services, such as litigation, will be displayed as a transparent additional fee. Services will not commence until the solution has been selected and the fees have been paid in accordance with clause 3.1.
  4. Monies we hold on your behalf
    1. Whilst we do not expect to receive any payments from your customers, we will not bank the transaction if one is received and where possible, we will forward you the payment instruction within a reasonable time frame. This will ensure that the customer’s account is accurate and as up to date as possible. Should we need to bank any funds on your behalf, no interest is redeemable by you in relation to us holding these funds.
  5. Litigation Costs
    1. The fee for our set price litigation package covers all activity up to and including the issue of a claim and is paid in advance. Additional activity such as enforcement or defence, if required, can accrue supplementary costs and fees as explained within our legal partner(s) terms and conditions.
  6. Compliance Activities
    1. Although we are unlikely to hold any of your monies, we are required by anti-money laundering legislation to report to the relevant authorities any suspicion or knowledge that a client’s funds (or any funds provided for or on behalf of a client) derive from the proceeds of crime. You agree that if this is the case, and we need to suspend any further activity on your behalf, that we will not be held accountable for any adverse consequences experienced by you as a result of our compliance with laws and regulations.
  7. Bankruptcy and IVA
    1. If you are an individual and not acting on behalf of a limited company, you must inform us immediately if you are, or have ever been declared bankrupt. There are implications if you choose to commence legal activity as a service of COLLECTaDEBTpro. There are restrictions within this recovery activity and the legal obligations imposed are serious.
    2. You can still instruct our debt collection processes if you have been declared bankrupt, however if you decide to select legal proceedings, a claim cannot be issued in your name unless your Trustee in Bankruptcy has granted a Deed of Assignment allowing you to do this before the claim is issued. If no Deed of Assignment is granted then any proceedings issued in your name will be void and you could be responsible for all the legal costs of the Defendant.
    3. If you are the subject of an Individual Voluntary Arrangement then this may also affect any claim and again you must inform us of that fact immediately.
  8. General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
    1. To provide our debt collection services, we will need to record and maintain certain information about your business to create your account.
