Sending a demand letter for payment of past due account receivable is the first step in effectively managing your company’s cash flow. A demand letter puts your customer on notice that your company is ready to take collection of the past due account to the next level. Our commercial debt collection law firm has established an attorney demand letter program.
An attorney demand letter for payment of money due to your company indicates to your customer that you are willing to start a legal proceeding to collect on the account. The difference between a demand letter from a collection attorney rather than a demand letter from a commercial collection agency is obvious. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. Most debtors know that and will ignore demand letters from a collection agency.

Creditors that use a collection agency end up paying higher contingent fees upon collection of the account when the collection agency sends the account to a collection attorney when the collection agency cannot collect on the debt without litigation. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law.

Our law firm offers creditors a flat rate for sending a demand letter for payment. The demand for payment instructs your customer to make payment arrangements directly with your company. By offering a flat fee, our clients may save money because they will not have to pay a commercial collection agency a contingent fee which usually ranges between twenty and thirty-five percent.

Collection agencies typically have legal forwarding departments for debt collection accounts that the collection agency was unable to collect.

For most small businesses, having to engage in collecting past due accounts becomes frustrating. For small business owners, cash flow is crucial to keeping the lights on and the business up and running. Having to take the time and resources to attempt to collect past due accounts internally takes away from the time the business should be focusing on their core business. There are agencies that specialize in debt collection for small businesses that they should consider. But, perhaps a better alternative is utilizing debt collection law firms who focus their practice on representing business that are owed money. We have talked in past blogs about the limitations of using a collection agency to collect your company’s money.
Collection Agencies Are Not Licensed to Practice Debt Collection Law
A collection agency cannot hold themselves out as a debt collection law firm nor can they legally practice debt collection law. Collection agencies send a series of collection letters and then attempt to collect past due accounts by making debt collection telephone calls demanding payment. Collection agencies also typically will charge a contingent collection fee between 25% to 40%. If a lawsuit is required to sue a debtor for your money, the agencies typically will raise the contingent fee even higher.

Collection Agencies May Not Be As Effective
Once your customer sees that you have retained a law firm to assist your company collect past due debt, the debtor will know that if arrangements are not made with your company for payment, litigation may be imminent. Today, most debtors recognize that a collection agency cannot bring suit. Collection agencies rely on commercial collection attorneys to bring suit on behalf of their collection agency clients. The collection agency in effect is acting as a middleman. As a result, you end up paying a higher contingent fee. By cutting out the collection agency you are eliminating the middle man and will save on contingency fees.
Whether you are a collection agency or a collection attorney in order to properly manage your work flow in a debt collection setting it is important to have debt collection software. Collection agencies and commercial collection law firms typically have a high volume of debt collection files. To manage these files without the assistance of a debt collection software program would almost be unheard of in the debt collection industry.
Our commercial collection law firm uses a web based software called Casetracker. Casetracker software allows our debt collection professionals track thousands of commercial debt collection cases. Because it is web based it allows not only our commercial debt recovery staff but also our commercial debt collection clients to log in from anywhere there is a web browser, including smart phones, to gain access to their files.
Collection Agencies and Collection Attorneys Use Debt Collection Software
Casetracker has different modules in place to help manage the work flow. Our debt collectors have a different module from our customer service representatives. Each collection file maintains a separate accounting section so that when funds are collected from debtors, clients are easily able to track the amount collected, the contingent collection fee that our collection lawyers will retain and then the net proceeds of the collection that will be remitted back to the client.
Collection Law Firm
Our commercial debt collection law firm was first introduced to Casetracker by a Florida commercial collection agency that had been using the software for several years. Collection agencies have some different needs when it comes to debt collection software but, the similarities between what a commercial collection law firm and a commercial collection agency do are not that different. Casetracker was able to customize our debt collection software to our needs as we did not need some of the features that a commercial collection agency would utilize.
We are a commercial collection law firm based in Boca Raton, Florida. We would be happy to share our experience using Casetracker over the years in our office. We welcome commercial debt collection claims directly from creditors and from collection agencies from all over the United States.
Florida Collection Agencies Hire Our Florida Collection Attorney For Their Collection Agency
Florida collection agencies have been contacting our debt collection law firm more frequently because it has been coming more difficult for their Florida collection agency to collect on past due accounts. The difficulty for Florida collection agencies is that the collection agency is limited to making collection calls and sending out demand letters for payment. This is still a very tough economy and Florida collection agencies do not have the same effectiveness as a Florida collection attorney filing a lawsuit to collect money.
Our Florida collection lawyers work with Florida collection agencies when the Florida collection agency after sending debt collection letters and after making telephone collection calls, has been unable to effectuate collection of their clients account receivable. Our debt collection attorneys look at a variety of credit and collection strategies to devise a collection strategy that Florida collection agencies cannot implement. Florida collection agencies are not license to practice law. Because of that, the collection agency has to refer the collection case to our Florida collection attorney and charge you a higher contingency fee.
Recognizing that creditors are paying high contingency fees to Florida collection agencies, our debt recovery law firm has implemented a low flat fee attorney demand letter service. Just as Florida collection agencies send demand letters for payment, our law firm will not charge a contingent fee like a Florida collection agency. Our collection attorneys also offer a flat fee telephone demand service.
We invite you to visit our web site to learn more about how we can save your company money by choosing our attorney demand letter service to attempt collection of your companies past due accounts rather than using a Florida commercial collection agency.
Collection agencies have been referring their collection agency accounts to our commercial collection law firm early in their debt collection process. In previous blog posts we have discussed the difference between a collection agency and a collection lawyer. There has been a lot in the news about collection agencies, With the economy slowly recovering businesses are starting to extend credit again. The result is that there are more collection accounts that may need to the assistance of a third party debt collector. The client needs to decide whether to send the account to a commercial collection agency or a collection attorney.
When the client has many small balance accounts that are past due, sending those collection accounts to a collection agency may make sense. A commercial collection agency is not a collection attorney and not license to practice debt collection law. Collection agencies have systems in place for handling huge volumes of claims and can send multiple demand letters for payment and make many debt collection phone calls. However, once a matter is not able to be collected a collection agency must send the account to a collection law firm to pursue further debt collection activities.
Our law firm has launched a new service wherein; a creditor can put the power of an attorney demand letter behind their demand for payment. Most people who owe money would take the threat of legal action from a lawyer letter demanding payment over simply receiving a collection letter from a commercial collection agency. Our attorney demand letter for payment service also offers an avenue where collection calls are made from our collection attorneys and trained collection staff.
Collection Agencies Use Our Debt Collection Service
We encourage you to visit our web site to learn more about our attorney demand letter service for debt collection. You may find this service a better and less expensive alternative to placing your collection accounts with a collection agency.
Collection Agencies and Collection Departments Utilizing Debt Collection Book
Our EBook Collecting Account Receivables has been getting very positive feedback. Our commercial debt collection clients have told us that they downloaded the book and have had their accounting staff read it. The book helps creditors set up internal debt collection strategies. Discussed is also the difference between a collection agency and a debt collection law firm. Collection attorneys can provide debt recovery services that commercial collection agencies are not able to provide legally.
Collection agencies are limited to making phone calls and sending demand letters for payment. Collection agencies cannot file a law suit, take depositions in aid of execution or garnish bank accounts to seize assets once a judgment is obtained. Obtaining a judgment is not the hard part if a debt is justly owed. It is how you collect on a judgment. A collection agency is not licensed to practice law and must retain a collection lawyer to implement a litigation strategy to collect on accounts. Collection agencies when forwarding a debt collection case to a collection attorney typically will charge their client’s a higher contingent fee because they have to charge a fee on top of the collection lawyer’s fee. Many credit managers realize that when it is apparent customer is not paying, it makes sense to retain a debt collection law firm rather than a collection agency. Not only will the credit manager save money but, putting the power of an attorney behind your demand for payment is more effective.
Collection agencies serve a purpose when there is a high volume of cases with relatively small balances to collect. We invite you to contact our commercial debt collection law firm to discuss the differences between utilizing a collection agency or forwarding your commercial collection accounts directly to a collection attorney.
