It’s easy to think a debtor hasn’t paid due to simple negligence or reluctance, but this may not be the case at all. Information allows debtors to understand their debt, and breaking down payments into simpler terms can make the situation less overwhelming for debtors. Accounts receivable departments can obtain higher success rates by having information ready and using it appropriately.
Sending frequent reminders to debtors can increase the chance of recovering funds. Using language that isn’t threatening will help even more, as communications should always remain professional. Let debtors know you are available for questions and that you are aware of their debts. It’s also important to notify debtors when additional action will be taken, such as forwarding the case to a collection agency.
On that note, debt collection can lead to expenses and wasted time. If your plan of action doesn’t work with a specific debtor, consider using collection services before things get out of hand. Rapid Recovery Solution offers a satisfaction guarantee and a free quote to recover your money quickly.
