Collection letters final warning of collection procedures

After your notification of your intention to commence collection procedures, your options are defined. If you haven't received payment you are effectively obliged to start the collection process.

When advising commencement of collection procedures:

  • Ensure compliance with law
  • Do not use threatening terminology
  • State commencement of collection
  • Remind the client payment will cease any collection actions

Collection processes are legal processes.

Collection agents are required to conduct these processes in accordance with applicable laws.

If collection procedures fail, the next process is legal action.
