Our Fees

No win no fee debt collection

At Hilton-Baird we believe it’s important to provide debt collection services that are transparent and offer value for money to our clients.

While debt collection agency fees can vary greatly, our activity is typically conducted on a no win no fee basis, which means we charge a success-based fee in proportion to what we recover. This approach ensures we’re fully committed to bringing the desired results for our clients and that we always go that extra mile in order to maximise recovery.

Legal collection fees

We believe that legal action should be a last resort, with personal, persistent and professional mediation being much more effective in successful commercial debt recovery.

In the event that legal proceedings must be commenced, however, we charge a small administration fee of £75 + VAT to issue a Letter Before Action (this is standard court protocol before legal action can begin), issue the Money Claim on your behalf and deal with the administration of the case, up to enforcement of either a Warrant of Control or Writ of Control. The cost of the Money Claim is in addition to this, and depends on the value of the debt. Please see page 4 of our Frequently Asked Questions for further details.

Should further action be required beyond this process, we will work with you to identify the most appropriate enforcement action. Each action is subject to the following fees:

Description Hilton-Baird administration fee*
Court fee
Obtaining judgment
£75 As prescribed by the court
Writ/Warrant of Control

Attachment of Earnings

Statutory Demand £150

* All fees payable to Hilton-Baird Collection Services are subject to VAT, and are in addition to the success-only charges detailed above.

All legal actions and costs will be agreed with you up front or covered in a service level agreement. For more information please download our FAQs, which covers many questions regarding the legal process and costs involved. All costs are outlined in the terms and conditions when you instruct us.

“We’d reached the end of the line in terms of knowing what steps to take next. I’m very happy with the result of the situation once Hilton-Baird got on board. They were very professional in their approach and saved me a lot of stress. I will definitely use them again in the future if need arises.”
