Unpaid/Late Payments Guidance and Practical Steps
If you have overdue invoices (terms exceeding more than 30 days) from your clients or other businesses be aware of your options earlier in the process before your debtor’s credit quality deteriorates even further or before your debtor start disputing your claim by attempting to raise counterclaims.

Understanding your options will help to prevent further deterioration of business and contractual relationship, will give you peace of mind and help you to communicate with your debtors in the most pragmatic, commercial and amicable manner within an agreed legal and contractual framework.
We can guide you to make the right choices to ensure that you have the best chance of recovering the debt, interest, damages, assist with refunds or payments of costs and expenses that you are owed, without appearing unethical, unprofessional or uncommercial.
