The commercial debt collection experts

Commercial Debt Collection

Commercial debt collection can be difficult for businesses of all shapes and sizes, especially when you combine this with the late payment culture that exists in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Moreover, not all businesses have a dedicated resource for collecting overdue accounts. This could be because they’re just starting out, may only have a small number of manageable customers or they may have so many customers that the resource doesn’t cover them. Whatever the business size, there’s always something better to be doing with your time than collecting overdue invoices.

A new breed of commercial debt collection, we call it debt resolution.

Involving a debt collection agency can be stressful for the buyer and supplier. It can cause concern about damaging customer relationships and losing vital future business but that’s where we come in. We specialise in commercial debt resolution; our approach is firm, but fair. Firstly, we ask the right questions and most importantly, we listen. Then, once we have identified the issues that are causing the payment delay, we quickly work towards agreeing a way forward that works for all parties. Above all, it’s a business transaction which has gone wrong. It needs to be rectified and we understand that companies owe money but people pay bills.

The environment

The true cost of a bad debt

The average profit margin for a business in the UK is 10% according to the office for national statistics. Therefore and as an example, a loss of £10,000 would result in having to do £100,000 in additional turnover in order to offset the loss and for the average SME, this figure is simply unachievable. Consequently this can lead to business failure.

By using the sliders in our bad debt calculator, you can see how much additional turnover is required to offset a late payment if it becomes irrecoverable. Still not sure if you need us?

As a result of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and the The Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013, collection costs and interest are payable by the buyer. Therefore, when we collect them, there’s no cost to you. 

3 simple steps to getting paid

Register

Registering with Ko-bolt is free of charge, there are no joining fees, annual fees or debt placement fees, so you only pay when we collect. What’s more, as per the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013, collection costs and interest are payable by your buyer. We add our costs to the account and when we collect them, there’s no cost to you. Any interest we recover is 100% yours.

Place your debt

Once you've registered, you can start working with Ko-bolt right away. You’ll need to provide us with copies of invoices and/or an up to date statement of account. You can drag and drop these documents into Ko-bolt’s online debt placement tool. We’ll only contact you if we need additional information or we’re unable to help (e.g. if we identify that the buyer is already insolvent at placement).

Get Paid!

Provided we have everything we need, we'll get to work within 24 hours and we hope to have resolved the debt within 21 days. Once we've collected your money, we want you to make use of it, so we remit cleared funds every other week, which is twice the average for the industry.
