Case Study - GBP 5,000 recovered from Estonian Debtor 

Initiation of Case 
A UK logistics company based near Hull had a £5,000 debt against a debtor in Tallinn, Estonia. The debt related to transportation of goods to the debtor company. There were no issues with the service and deliveries were made on time. Despite many follow up calls and emails the debtor refused to honour the contract. 
Debt Collection Processes 
Upon receipt of the case we forwarded it to our local Creditreform office in Estonia. They then immediately sent the initial dunning letter to the debtor stating the amount owed and a deadline to pay. The debtor advised of financial problems and an agreed payment plan was set up to include costs and interest. Our local office monitored the case closely and chased constantly if payments were missed. Our local office recovered the full amount plus costs and interest charged. 
The client was extremely pleased with the efficiency and persistence of our service to effect a full recovery on their behalf.
