Debt Recovery

Why engage Sheehan & Co to represent you in the recovery of debts owing to you?

Unfortunately, most businesses at some point in time experience cash flow problems. Pursuing debtors can consume your valuable time and resources which you could otherwise be spending to improve your business.

Sheehan & Co will provide your business, whether you are a sole trader, family partnership business or corporation, with a tailored debt recovery process for you to utilise. The aim of this process is to ensure that your debts are collected in a professional and cost effective manner, taking into consideration that whilst someone may be your debtor today, tomorrow they may again be your customer.

It is always important to firstly establish:

  • What is the amount of the debt?
  • Who owes the debt and why?
  • How did the debt come to be owed? For example, were services provided to the debtor but not paid for by the debtor?
  • Was there an agreement in place regarding the debt? For example, was quotation supplied and accepted in writing? Is there a written agreement? Alternatively, your agreement may be wholly or partly verbal.

Once these questions have been answered, we can then progress to providing you with clear advice in relation to the recoverability of the debt. There is no point throwing good money after bad.
