Anguilla Debt Collection – No Win No Fee

 

Creditreform operates a global specialist International debt collections service. We have local offices and fully approved expert international debt collection agency partners in every country worldwide. All our International debt collection agency partners and offices operate on a No Win No Fee basis charging an agreed commission against monies recovered only. All our international offices and partners initiate the collection processes by sending the debtors a debt collection letter to introduce their involvement.

Main reasons why a local country debt recovery agency is so important rather than trying to recover from a debt collection agency UK are as follows:

The local International Debt collection Partners know:

  1. The local cultures
  2. The best methods of initiating debt recovery letters and processes
  3. The languages
  4. The laws
  5. Are in the same time zones

What is the debt collection process in Anguilla?

There is no one specific procedure.  In the case of debt collection cases accruing under the terms of a contract the course taken will be dictated by the terms of the contract, if any.  Otherwise, the customary process followed in the usual course of events is:  a first demand is made giving the debtor say 14 / 21 days within which to settle the debt or enter into arrangements to settle.

If there is no progress, a further demand is made giving say 7 days to settle, failing which steps will be initiated without further reference to the debtor.  These steps are evidence to the court that a reasonable effort to recover was made prior to the filing of a claim.

If local parties are involved there is a 10% collection fee added to the outstanding amount.

If the creditor is an international person/entity then the collection fee added to the outstanding amount is 20% of the debt or a negotiated amount (not less than 10%).

–       Average length of time to collect?
This will depend upon the circumstances of each case.

If the creditor takes the decision to file a claim:  A claim form and Statement of Claim (or Affidavit in Support of Claim) is filed.

If there is no defence to the action and funds are available to settle, a claim can be satisfied within weeks/months.

If however, a defence is filed, there are various applications filed, and the matter goes to trial a resolution could take years.

–       Can late payment fees / interest be added to claims?
Yes; late payment fees and interest can be added if included in the terms of a contract.  Otherwise, statutory interest may be recovered at the rate of 5% per annum from the date of the entry of judgment.

–       Any brief details on legal service / legal process in Anguilla
Initial documents (such as a claim form and statement of claim) are required to be served on an individual in person by delivering to or leaving the document(s) with the individual.  Where a defendant is an entity then the document can be served in the following manner:

Service on a limited company:

  1. By leaving the originating documents at the company’s registered office;
  2. By sending the originating documents by telex, facsimile, prepaid post or cable addressed to the company’s registered office;
  3. By serving the originating documents personally on an officer or manager at any place of business of the company that has a real connection with the claim;
  4. Serving the originating documents personally on any director, officer, receiver, receiver-manager or liquidator of the company;
  5. Any other manner allowed by any enactment.

Originating documents can also be served on a legal practitioner if the practitioner is authorised to accept such service and has notified the claimant in writing that he/she is so authorised.

Anguilla has a robust dispute resolution system and it is recommended that persons/companies avail themselves of this prior to initiating costly litigation.

Anguilla Business Credit Reports

Creditreform provides over 88 million international business credit reports throughout Europe and 200 million international business credit reports worldwide. We provide freshly investigated Anguilla business credit reports which can be done prior to trading to make sure the company you will be dealing with can meet the commitment or once the debt becomes overdue to ensure the debtor can meet the amount owed.

There are many unique requirements to recovering international debts in all countries including Anguilla debt collection services which differ from the UK debt collection agency  services and therefore it is very important that cases are handled directly by our expert international debt collection agencies and not from debt collectors UK. This method of international debt collection sets Creditreform aside from the competition who in many cases try and recover debts from a UK debt collector only.
