Your questions answered

What is the process to recover a debt?

We assign a trained debt lawyer to review your paperwork, then send a letter of demand. If we do not receive a response or the response is evasive or unreasonable, we issue proceedings. Prior to issuing proceedings, we carry out usual searches to ascertain from the material available if the debtor has the capacity to pay.

What is the law for debt collection?

If you have been engaged by a party for your services or supply of goods for a fee, and they do not pay, you have the legal right to sue that person for the amount owed. A qualified team of debt recovery lawyers will be able to navigate the legal processes for obtaining a result in your favour.

What is the likelihood of recovering a claim?

The likelihood of successful debt recovery depends on the financial capacity of the debtor to pay their debt. In many instances, it also is dependent on whether you have the right help, and are willing to take the necessary steps to recover the debt. The only way to really discover whether or not you can recover a claim is by pursuing the matter with a debt collection lawyer.

What will AANDI Lawyers do to recover my debt?

Recovering a debt can be a long and tedious process, but it can be far easier and simpler if you have the right help.

Our team at AANDI Lawyers can help you through every stage of the process, starting with a Letter of Demand and escalating to court action or a Statutory Demand.

What if the other party refuses to pay an invoice, what are my options?

You have two options:

  1. Litigate against the other party
  2. Issue a statutory demand if the amount owed is over $5,000 and there is no dispute about the amount owing

The consequence of issuing a statutory demand is that if the company does not set it aside, non-payment of the amount owing (within the time stipulated in the demand) is an act of insolvency, and you can apply to the court to wind a company up.

Is a statutory demand the best process to follow to recover a debt?

This varies between cases. Statutory demands should not be used solely for a debt collection option, our view is to use this is in limited circumstances. Also, if there is some uncertainty about the agreement statutory demands should be avoided.

We review the correspondence between you and the debtor. If that correspondence suggests that the debtor does not dispute the amount owed, and the debtor continues to trade a good business, then a statutory demand is warranted.
