Debt Recovery for Charities

Debt Recovery for Charities


Chasing late and non-payment of fees is a time consuming task and a distraction to any charity, diverting them from the main focus of their charitable activities and maintaining the smooth running of the underlying support structure. Projection of fee income and the associated potential expenditure is key to fulfilling a charity’s aims, therefore it is vital to have a good collection structure, based on comprehensive terms and conditions agreed with the user, client or service recipient: this may range from the parents of school children for an independent school to the local authority for a health and social care charity.

Complementing our full dispute resolution service, our fees and debt recovery services for non-disputed debt are comprehensive and can be incorporated as an addition to dovetail with a charity’s own structure. We can advise at an early stage or on an ad hoc basis, whether helping with staff training, advising on credit control procedures, using our negotiating skills, or of course tapping into our knowledge of court processes if necessary.

Our debt recovery lawyers offer a facility where we have access to a charity’s fee ledger details in order that we can post details of the current position in real time on each matter, as well as producing periodic management reports.

We can provide debt services within an agreed fee structure based mostly on successful recovery.
