Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, if you have a written agreement with the debtor that includes a clause allowing for the recovery of debt collection costs. Even if you do not have such an agreement, you may be able to recover some of your legal costs if you are successful in a court claim against the debtor.

That depends on the law firm that is engaged and the way that they calculate their fees. Our estimate of costs is given to you up-front and there are no hidden costs. You also have immediate access to a range of highly experienced and qualified lawyers in many fields of law should your matter become more complex due to the actions of the Debtor or the terms of the transaction, and we can act for you in the court proceedings.

If the matter proceeds in a court, in most cases the answer is no. We can prepare and file all Court documents for you and also appear in Court on your behalf at all applications and hearings. However, should your matter need to be determined at a Trial, you may need to attend Court to give evidence.

If however the matter proceeds in a tribunal such as QCAT, legal representation is only permitted in limited cases and it is almost certain that you will need to attend.

It is critical that you take legal advice as soon as possible. If a demand has been properly served, the company has only 21 days after service to file and serve an application to the Supreme or Federal Court for an order setting it aside. In that application, it is necessary to provide affidavits swearing to all aspects of the dispute relating to the debt. Many companies miss this time limit and lose the opportunity to dispute the debt, and the creditor can then make an application to wind up the company which can be disastrous.
