When you need to move an account along but do not wish to use the full collection service yet, ACA offers a 10 Day Final Demand letter which instructs your debtors to remit directly to you. We complete the forms and mail them out. The Demand is sent at no charge, and if the debt (or any portion of it) is paid within the allowed timeframe, ACA will waive its fees. Any remaining unpaid balance will be placed for collection at your regular collection rate.
Professional collectors, attentive follow up and in-depth reporting highlight our commercial debt collection service. With over 20 years in business, collecting your outstanding balances quickly and effectively is our number one priority.
- Fees charged only on monies collected.
- Debts under 1 year old – 20% on Canadian funds, 25% on US funds. Debts over 1 year old (any currency) and all debts under $500.00 – 33%
- Industry specific trade associations and organizations wishing to discuss a strategic partnership are encouraged to contact Client Services at (800) 561-8921 ext. 239.
Should your debtor require that extra push, ACA offers one of the most comprehensive, effective litigation services available. Extensive contacts across Canada, the United States and Europe allow us to provide “full service” collection to our clients with an eye towards keeping costs low without sacrificing performance.
Option 1: Client pays legal fees, disbursements and commercial collection fees as indicated in Service #2 (above).
Option 2: At our discretion, ACA will cover all legal fees and disbursements. The client pays a flat percentage on all principle monies collected. If no recoveries are realized there is no charge to the client.
ACA will act on behalf of credit grantors and perform an investigation into any situation that may give rise to a claim. Insurance policies covering specific accounts receivable usually will not allow a claim should there be a dispute between the parties. ACA will investigate and determine if the claim is within the parameters of the policy holders’ contract and will report accordingly to the policy holder and to the insurer.
A Mitigation Report will be provided at a cost of 3% of the total debt (minimum charge of $100.00 to a maximum of $250.00).
ACA has the resources to enforce judgments that clients have obtained. These judgments may or may not be related to collection matters and may have been granted by the superior or small claims courts. Judgments can be enforced in any jurisdiction in North America.
Monies set out in the Judgment (debt, interest to the date of the Judgment & costs) are subject to a commission of 33%.
Post-Judgment interest is subject to a commission rate of 50%.
All disbursements are in addition to the collection charge and are the responsibility of the client.
Applicable only to new files placed for Bankruptcy Follow-up.
ACA will file your Proof of Claim and follow up with the Trustee for information and dividends. This service is available at a cost of $75.00 per file.
Should you grant ACA your Proxy, we will file your Proof of Claim and provide follow up at no charge to you. All dividends are commissionable at the regular rates.
