Taking control of your Cashflow

Published On: March 13th, 2020

Cash is King and without it, businesses do not survive. Money that is owed to you is no good sitting in your customer’s account. Unfortunately, that won’t help you pay your suppliers, pay wages or even pay your rent, therefore, keeping on top of your cashflow is essential. Not planning ahead can lead to misspending and could cause you to run out of money.

Of course is it difficult to forecast when customer’s will pay as this is something that is out of your control, however, ensuring you have the correct procedures in place for if, and when your invoices become overdue is a vital role in keeping on top of your cashflow and that is why at Judge’s Demand we offer a service that is cost effective and that will cater to all of your credit control and debt recovery needs.

By instructing Judge’s Demand you can refer all your unpaid invoices to us, and we will action them on your behalf. This will give you peace of mind and can free up your valuable time giving you the ability to be there to run your business effectively.

Got a County Court Judgment award? What next?

Published On: March 12th, 2020

We often receive enquiries from companies or individuals who have been awarded a County Court Judgment (CCJ) and thought that they would then receive payment immediately from the debtors. Unfortunately, obtaining a CCJ does not mean that the debtor will pay you and you may have to enforce the Judgment to obtain the funds that you are lawfully due.

There are several options to enforce a CCJ and the best option available will often depend on the status and circumstances of the debtor.

The enforcement options available are as follows :

  1. Instruct High Court Enforcement Officers (the CCJ must be above £600.00 to use this method of enforcement and it is ideal if you have some information on the debtor i.e. what assets do they own, do they own a car, etc?)
  2. Instruct the County Court Bailiff’s. We would only advise this option if the CCJ was below £600 and the debtor did not work.
  3. Apply to the Court for an Attachment of Earnings Order. The debtor must be in employment for this to be successful but you do not need to know who the debtor is employed by as the Court will order them to supply that information.
  4. Apply to the Court for a Charging Order. The debtor must own property for this to be successful and you must be able to show the Court what property they own using land registry searches.
  5. Apply to the Court for a Third Party Debt Order. You must be aware of a third party that owes a monetary amount to the debtor for this to succeed. This could be the debtors bank account details or another party that owes an amount to the debtor. If you are aware of the debtors bank account details or just the name of the bank then this application can be made and, if funds are available in the debtors bank account then the bank will be ordered to freeze the same pending the Third Party Debt Order Application Hearing. If successful then the Court will order the bank to send the funds directly to you.
  6. Bankruptcy / Winding Up. If the debtor is an individual and the CCJ is above £5k then Bankruptcy Proceedings can be issued. If the debtor is a Ltd Company then the CCJ just needs to be above £750.00 for Winding Up Proceedings to be issued.
  7. If you are unsure of the debtors status and circumstances then you can apply to the Court for the debtor to be ordered to attend Court for questioning. The debtor will be ordered to take along all evidence of their financial situation including bank statements, rent / mortgage statements, etc and be questioned by an Officer of the Court. The information obtained can then assist with making the right choice of enforcement option above.

Judge’s Demand Ltd are extremely experienced in enforcing CCJ’s and obtaining the information required in order to provide the best enforcement advice to our Clients.

If you need assistance in enforcing a CCJ please do not hesitate to contact us on 0151 329 2138 or info@judgesdemand.co.uk

Late Payments and their cost on Mental Health – Did you know….

Published On: March 12th, 2020

Research published by Pay.UK has found a link between late payments and the impact they have on small business owner’s mental health.

Over 25% of SME business owners worry about late payments when they are not at work and over 15% of SME business owners say that late payment problems affect their confidence and result in them questioning their own ability to ‘head up’ a business.

It is not surprising to read that over 65% state that late payments take the enjoyment out of running a business and just under 10% of business owners have thought about seeking professional support to help them deal with the stress and anxiety that comes with late or non payment.

The ramification that late payments bear in relation to small business owners emotional welfare include :

  • Paying their own supplies late
  • Relying on overdrafts
  • Cutting their own salaries
  • Difficulty paying their business bills

With the statistics and facts provided above, it is easy to see how late payments can have an impact on a business owner’s mental health. Here at Judge’s Demand, we understand that your business is your livelihood, we understand that you have worked extremely hard to get your business to where it is now and we also understand that dealing with your debtor’s can be a very daunting and stressful task that can heighten anxiety. With this in mind, Judge’s Demand have created a service that caters for all your credit control and debt recovery needs. By instructing Judge’s Demand you are already lightening the load and taking a weight off your shoulders, knowing that we are working tirelessly to recover your late payments.

At Judge’s Demand we work with lots of SME’s, therefore we understand the affects that late payments can have on; cashflow, employing staff, paying rent etc and that is why our Account Handler’s come with a wealth of knowledge and are highly experienced and skilled in the debt recovery industry.

£82,000 CCJ recovered within 14 days of instruction

Published On: March 5th, 2020

We are very pleased to report that we have recovered the amount of £82,000.00 for our Client who is in the Private Sector.

Our Client had already been awarded the CCJ prior to instructing Judge’s Demand, however, they thought that this would automatically mean that they would receive payment. Unfortunately, no money was received and therefore our Client instructed us on the matter. We actioned the case and after a number of conversations with the debtor an agreement was put in place that payment in full would be made by the end of this week. We can confirm that payment has been received in full today, bringing the case to a close within 2 weeks of instruction.

Our Client is very pleased with the outcome and especially pleased with how quickly Judge’s Demand has recovered the money. Fantastic work Judge’s Demand!
