Many businesses fail to identify the importance of accounts receivable management and effective collection practices. If handled improperly, not only can poor collection efforts lead to cash flow problems for a business, but can directly contribute to business failure.
At Keltic, our collectors will communicate with the debtor customers in an effort to collect the money owed to you. We will utilize various methods of communication including letters and emails as well as communication by telephone and direct contact in person resulting from a field call or debtor interview. Our experience and understanding of the negotiation process is our strong point. Extensive working knowledge of the legal process supports our efforts should it become necessary. This extends to Small Claims Court, Supreme Court and the attachment and execution processes. Our knowledge and experience increases effectiveness and results while reducing the cost of using the courts to enable recovery.
Our fees are contingent on results…no collection, no charge. When we are successful in collecting money on your behalf, we charge only on the portion we collect. Our fee for commercial account collection follows a competitive sliding scale. Commercial rates apply to business accounts by registered companies or individuals that obtained the credit to conduct business. The business must still be active and operating. Volume, balance, and type of business are variables that effect commercial rates. Most commercial claim rates are less than 20%.
Our commission rate structure enables us to thoroughly work each and every account assigned to us whether recovered or not. NETBACK is the objective…to deliver more money back to our client than any of our competitors with an equal volume of business based on effort, regardless of the rate charged. For more or specific information on rates please Contact Us directly to review the variables.
Negotiated rates are available for large balance assignments and/or large volume assignments.
Final Notice Program
Keltic Collections offers qualifying clients a Final Notice Program that includes both letters and self-adhesive labels. Our distinctive “FINAL NOTICE” gets attention and delivers results. With clear indication of your intention to assign the account to collection should it remain unpaid, this notice enables you to establish the final date. With the date set, should the account remain unpaid, our timely follow up improves collection outcome. Should the account be paid prior to the final date you assigned, our service is free. We would be pleased to provide you with a complete overview of this program. For further information please Contact Us.
Based on the qualification, and authorization of our Client, both consumer and commercial collection assignments are uploaded to Equifax Canada’s credit bureau records. Reporting is ongoing throughout the life cycle of the account. Only when the account is paid in full will the credit bureau record reflect the account as paid. Our relationship with Equifax enables Keltic to verify information and use the credit bureau as a tracing tool in the effort to locate debtors. Reporting collection assignments often results in the debtor being forced to address payment of the debt as they continue to utilize credit.
As important as the ability to effectively communicate the collection message is the ability to locate both individuals and company owners or executives. Effective tracing is a blend of an art and a science. Keltic supports the science with access to extensive databases including government records and credit bureau files. Keltic’s people are well versed in the art. Our experience coupled with knowing what to ask for, and how to ask, provides us with information that leads to results.
Skip Tracing Only services are provided to qualified clientele on a per fee basis. For further information please Contact Us.
