Debt recovery for the education sector

If not dealt with promptly, late or unpaid tuition fees can escalate and impact cash flow. In many cases, a payment plan can be arranged to recover arrears. Where that isn’t possible, or where the debtor defaults, further action may be needed.

As established leaders in the debt recovery field, we have a proven track record of managing the recovery of unpaid fees and sundry debts on behalf of a range of education institutions, including independent schools, colleges and universities.

Our expertise allows us to act swiftly and effectively and we are often able to recover an outstanding debt without the need for litigation. When necessary, we can also issue court proceedings and advise you on the most appropriate action.

How we can work with you

We offer a complimentary initial review so we can learn about your needs and you can decide if we are a good fit for you. Following this, we will work with you to agree a tailored approach designed to achieve the best possible outcome. This means the highest recovery rate, at the lowest cost.

Our specialists regularly advise on:

  • Managing payments on payment plans
  • Monitoring compliance on payment agreements
  • Credit control processes
  • Minimising late payment fees
  • Recovering outstanding debt
  • Reviewing terms and conditions of payment contracts
  • Standard letters and instalment agreements

Our charges

We strive to provide a cost-effective service and we will agree a set of fixed fees with you depending on the service required. Where court action is needed, we will always provide you with a fee estimate in advance. If your contract terms and conditions allow, we can recover our fees as well as interest and court fees from the debtor.
