APSCo and backdoor hire and fee dispute expert, introPROTECT have launched a new debt recovery toolkit in order to better support APSCo members in collecting outstanding monies swiftly and effectively. The toolkit is a great starting point for debt recovery in recruitment and is designed to assist members through a staged approach, providing the tools required to speed up the payment and recovery process. These include step-by-step practical advice around possible solutions as well as template documents for letters before a claim, settlement agreements and statutory demand forms. introPROTECT is founded by Barry Cullen, an ex-recruiter turned solicitor and is an APSCo Affiliate member.
“APSCo is always striving to enhance its service offering, and we are delighted that we are able to support our members by sharing this new toolkit,” commented Tania Bowers, General Counsel at APSCo. “Debts seldom unfold in a straightforward manner and choosing between various approaches to recovery, and managing these effectively, can be challenging for any business, particularly SMEs.
“Our member satisfaction surveys consistently show that our legal services are a well-utilised and highly regarded element of our wider service offering, and we are continually responding to feedback to expand our legal support,” she added. “For recruitment firms that are looking for a starting point for debt recovery, I have no doubt that this toolkit will be invaluable.”
Barry Cullen added: “Recovering disputed fees can be a fine balancing act for business owners and finance teams and it can sometimes be hard to know where to begin. We are delighted to be working with APSCo to share our specialist expertise with its members and I hope many take full advantage of the resources we have shared.”
