B2B Debt Collection Online
Standard agency practice is to add commission on top of the debt, and if they are successful in collecting that from your debtor* you could receive the entire outstanding balance... no charge.
Simply sign-up using your accounts package or social media login, complete your company information then add your debtor along with the overdue invoice details. We then match you to a vetted debt collection agency.
DebtCase is making debt collection a viable option again and potentially FREE*.
Let's take a closer look
The first step is to connect your accounts package or one of your social media accounts to DebtCase. This allows us to automatically fill in your information and speeds up the login process as you don't have to remember any more passwords.
The next step is to complete and confirm your company information, including your address and contact details. If you connected via your accounts package this will be automatically filled in for you, just ensure they are up to date.
Next you need to tell us about your debtor. Enter their address and contact details along with basic information regarding the overdue invoice. Again, if you connected using your accounts package, you'll simply select from a prepopulated list.
We now match your debtor to one of our collection agencies, based on the age and value of the debt. The best commission rate will be displayed and all you have to do is upload any relevant documentation, such as a copy invoice, then click confirm.
Once your debt is accepted you'll receive real-time updates from the debt collection agency on everything they do. You will be notified by both email and SMS whenever there is an update and you can find out more by simply logging back into DebtCase.
Ready to submit your first invoice?
It really is this simple. Get your debtor information to hand then click on your preferred accounts package or social media from the ones listed.
Follow the instructions, it shouldn't take more than a few seconds to connect, then you're ready to start the debt collection process.
Frequently asked questions
We know using a new online service can be daunting and you probably have more questions about how DebtCase works and the processes involved. That's why we've put together this FAQ section, covering the most common debt collection questions we get asked to hopefully put your mind at rest and help you post your first overdue invoice through us.
DebtCase is completely free to use. Plus most of our agencies operate a “no collection, no fee” policy so you’ve got nothing to lose.
The only costs involved will be if the collection agency are successful in collecting your debt, but are unsuccessful in collecting their commission from your debtor (see the question below) in which case you’d have to pay that.
Their commission is classed as “acceptable costs & interest” and therefore can be claimed back from your debtor. For example, if the outstanding balance was £1,000 and the agency offers you a rate of 10%, then your debtor would be liable for £1,100.
This way you could receive the entire £1,000 without having to pay the collection agency, or us, a penny as our fees are covered by the agency.
We find this the quickest and easiest way for clients to sign-up as we can automatically collect your basic information, such as name and email address.
Plus it’s one less password to remember.
When you connect your accounts package (or social media account) we only access what’s needed to start the process, such as your name and email address, nothing else.
After that, you complete your company information and give us details about your debtor and the overdue invoice. And that’s it.
From then we’ll keep track of all correspondence from your selected agency, and hopefully any payments received, until the debt is resolved one way or another.
