Cash flow is key to any business and if you have customers who aren’t paying they are endangering your business. Roythornes debt recovery service helps businesses recover the money they are owed. With an enviable reputation, we recover millions of pounds worth of debts each year for clients - much of which they had given up all hope of ever collecting. We work for a wide range of businesses from sole traders and small retail units to some of the biggest names on the high street. We also have the capacity to recovery debts in other countries, so it you have international customers who won’t pay, Roythornes is the natural choice. If our pre-legal routes to recovery don’t secure payment, we can issue claims at the County Court or take insolvency proceedings on your behalf. Our team are experienced and knowledgeable in all recovery procedures and can help you make decisions. As one of the top 200 law firms in the UK we also have a strong and experienced litigation team who can deal with disputes should the need arise.

Two flexible pre-legal


We offer a choice of two early collection options to recover what you are owed. Option 1 Solicitors Demand Letter. Show you mean business.

Option 2 Commission based. You only pay if we recover.

Many clients decide to go straight to a ‘solicitors demand letter’. A letter from a solicitor shows your customers that you are willing to seek specialist assistance and are serious about collecting the money you are owed.

As it says in the title, on our commission-based recovery service we charge a commission based on the amount of money we recover on your behalf. We use a combination of telephone calls, letters and e-mails from our highly experienced collections team to recover your debt without the need to issue legal proceedings.

Speed is always critical when collecting debts - the longer you leave a debt the less likely you are to get paid, so we offer a same day service which gets a letter out to your debtor on the day you instruct us. Our results speak for themselves. In 2014 we achieved an impressive success rate of 85%. The best thing about our solicitors demand letters is that they cost just £5 +vat each - a small price to pay for the chance of recovering the money your are owed. What’s more, if the debt remains unpaid, and you instruct us to commence the Pre-Action stage, we won’t charge you for the solicitors demand letter. • 85% success rate • Rapid service • Only £5 +VAT to show you mean business
