Guide to Internal Debt Collection Procedures

When deciding to use a debt collection agency or debt collection law firm there are several factors to consider when trying to recover your company’s money. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. A collection agency if they are unable to collect the past due account, must then forward the claim to a debt collection law firm for a collection lawyer to proceed. A collection agency would then have to charge your company a higher contingent fee once they place the collection matter with a debt collection law firm.

Collection Agencies Are Limited – Collection Agencies Send Accounts To Debt Collection Lawyers

Collection lawyers are licensed to practice debt collection law. Collection attorneys can write debt collection letters on their legal stationary. Receiving a collection letter from a debt collection law firm has a bigger psychological impact on the debtor than receiving a collection letter from a commercial collection agency.  When your customer receives a legal letter demanding payment for past due debt, they know that your company is serious in pursuing collection of the past due account.  Our debt collection law firm can customize the debt recovery letter to maximize the effectiveness of the letter which will demand payment for the past due invoices.

Collection Lawyers Versus Collection Agencies

When collecting debt, your company should be aware of the differences between using a collection agency to collect your company’s money versus using the collection lawyers at a debt collection law firm. Collection agencies are very limited in what they can legally do to attempt to collect past due accounts. Collection agencies can only send demand letters and make debt collection phone calls. A collection lawyer not only is able to make collection calls to recover past due accounts, but can send demand letters for payment.   The power of a collection lawyer signing a demand letter for payment has a much bigger impact than a debtor receiving a demand letter from a collection agency.  When a debtor receives a letter from a collection lawyer, they are made aware that litigation may be imminent to collect on the debt.

Hurricane Irma – Harder to Collect Money in Florida

Collecting  Money Owed After Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has brought the Florida economy to a halt. The strain on small businesses may make it harder for your company to collect money from customers to whom you have extended credit.   Hurricane Irma has caused many businesses to board up and close.  This will obviously have an economic impact on everyone and may make it more difficult for your customer to make payments that are  due  because of  cash flow issues.  Once the storm clears,  and things get back to “ business as usual” in Florida,  it is important for your business to stay on top of their collection accounts.

Collection Attorney – Debt Collection Law Firm

Our debt collection law firm is sympathetic to cash flow problems that small businesses may encounter. However, unless your company stays on top of collecting money owed to your company, your company’s account receivable may end up on the bottom of the stack of invoices your customer must pay.  Our collection attorney will make demand for payment and stress the urgency that your customer make payment arrangements to pay the debt owed to your company.  If payment arrangements are not made, our debt collection law firm will recommend that suit be started to collect the money.

Call Our Debt Collection Law Firm

Once a lawsuit is commenced to collect the money owed to your company, if your customer is serious about paying the past due invoices, a payment schedule can be set up. The payment schedule would be filed with the court. If the customer missed a payment, your company would be able to secure a judgment for the amount owed to your company.   Litigation does not always secure payment of money owed to your company.   However, once suit is filed your customer should feel the urgency to get the debt owed to your company resolved.

If a business has done everything they believe was possible to collect past due accounts, they often may start to consider sending the account to a collection agency.  Collection agencies may be an effect tool for debt recovery, but we have discussed the differences between a collection agency, collection attorneys, and debt collection law firms.  A collection agency is not licensed to practice debt collection law.  Collection agencies typically send accounts to collection attorneys throughout the United States. To send collection accounts to collection lawyers a collection agency must typically charge a higher contingency fee. The reason is that the collection agency is simply acting as a middleman.

Collection Agencies and Debt Recovery Law Firms Are Not The Same When It Comes To Collecting Past Due Accounts

Most commercial collection law firms can provide the same services that a collection agency can, but as stated above, because collection agencies are not collection attorneys, a debt recovery law firm can be a lot more powerful way to attempt the collection of your company’s overdue accounts. A letter and phone call from a collection attorney lets your customer know that your company is serious in pursuing the collection of the past due account.

 

There are many variants to being able to collect a past due account. Our debt collection law firm believes that before a lot of money is spent on contingent collection fees, a flat fee alternative should be considered.

Senior Debt Collector Joins The Gebeloff Law Group

A Commercial Collection Law Firm

The Gebeloff Law Group has added a Senior Debt Collector to its staff. The addition of the debt collector will assist Mr. Gebeloff in securing prelitigation  payments from debtors. The philosophy of The Gebeloff Law Group is to provide its clients commercial debt collection services in an effective and cost efficient manner. If voluntary payment is not obtained prior to litigation, the debt collector will help gather valuable information about the debtor, including, but not limited to, the nature of the dispute, assets the debtor may or may not have and/ or if the debtor’s officers may have set up other entities in an effort to defraud creditors.

We have discussed in prior blogs the difference between our commercial debt collection law firm and commercial collection agencies. Collection agencies also use debt collectors but, too many times debt collectors are limited in their effectiveness as they are constrained. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. A commercial collection agency must eventually send your debt collection case to a collection attorney if the collection agency is unable to collect on your company’s past due account receivable. The collection agency then will charge the creditor a higher contingent collection rate.

 

Our debt collector will also work on post judgment collections. Too many times after a judgment is obtained, not enough pressure is brought upon a debtor to make payments to satisfy the judgment. Commercial collection agencies cannot bring proceedings supplementary to implead third parties and/or pursue third parties for fraudulent transfers. We are optimistic that the addition of our Senior Debt Collector to our staff will increase the percentage of the recovery of bad debt our clients send to our commercial collection law firm.

Please feel free to call our debt collection law firm and ask to speak to one our experienced debt collection staff. We would be happy to discuss the differences between using a collection agency, collection agencies and/or using a collection attorney with a commercial collection law firm to collect your pre-judgment or post judgment debt.

Collection Agency

 Retail Collection Agencies  Regulated by the FDCPA

A collection agency is employed to collect debts either on commercial debt collection or retail debt collection accounts. When collecting debts from consumers or individuals who owe money from transactions that are not related to a commercial transaction, the account is considered a retail debt collection account. The collection agency is regulated by the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act). The collection agency is prohibited from employing debt collection tactics that may mislead or be overly aggressive. There are many prohibitions detailed in the act and collection agencies should be very careful when attempting collection of consumer accounts. There are law firms that their entire law practice concentrates on suing collection agencies that violate the act.

Commercial Collection Agencies

Commercial collection agencies that only collect on commercial collection accounts are not bound by the FDCPA. Our debt collection law firm mainly collects on commercial collection accounts as we do not want to subject our debt recovery from to the rigors of the FDCPA. We perform the same services as a commercial collection agency and more. Just like a commercial collection agency our law firm will send out collection demand letters demanding payment for your company’s money. Our debt collection attorneys will also make telephone calls just like a commercial collection agency to attempt to collect money and to determine the nature of the dispute, if any.

Florida Collection Agency

A commercial collection agency is not a collection law firm. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. A collection agency cannot file a lawsuit to collect your money. The collection agency has to send your debt collection account to a collection law firm. In most cases, the collection agency will be obligated to charge a higher contingent fee rate   to act as an intermediary between the collection attorney and the client. If your company knows form the outset that the account is going to be difficult to collect or require litigation, rather than placing the account with a collection agency, retaining a commercial collection law firm with experienced debt collection attorneys and paralegals.
