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 £150 + 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*|
|£150||As prescribed by the court|
|Writ/Warrant of Control|
|Attachment of Earnings|
|Third Party Debt Order||£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.
