Debt recovery for small businesses

According to recent government figures SMEs are the backbone of the British economy, their contributions to employment and total business turnover running at over 60% and almost 50% respectively.

But SMEs are disproportionately more likely to incur late payments and recent research from BACS shows the average SME spends £955 a month pursuing customers for late payments and overdue invoices. For many smaller companies the costs of recovering overdue payments can sour what is otherwise a profitable relationship.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Company Bug have secured the services of Safe Collections, a leading credit control and debt collection company, to help our users collect business debts and recover unpaid invoices quickly and professionally.

Incorporated in 1984, Safe Collections have more than thirty years of experience in their field. The experienced UK based collections team have heard every excuse and seen every tactic used by unscrupulous customers to delay or avoid payment.

We chose Safe Collections as our partner for debt recovery for a number of reasons, but foremost amongst them was their simple and transparent pricing with:

  • No advance charges or membership fees
  • No hidden or abortive charges
