15 November 2016

Sarah Everton, dispute resolution lawyer at Myers & Co in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent looks at the ten most common mistakes business owners make when it comes to tackling debt recovery, and advises on the best course of action.


Mistake 5: Not complying with regulations

There are numerous regulations that businesses must adhere to when seeking to recover debts from consumers.  Overly aggressive or persistent demands may also constitute criminal activity contrary to the Prevention of Harassment Act.  As such in order to avoid penalties, you must ensure that your policy does not break the law.
