Payment Queries

  • If the debtor contacts you regarding the reason for non-payment, would this be relayed to my credit control team?

    We will advise you of any contact with the debtor, whether this is a telephone call, e-mail etc. If the debtor is contacting us regarding an LBA, we do not enter into discussions with them as the LBA advises that they contact you directly. We would, however, note on the system that the debtor has contacted us. If the debtor is contacting us in regard to court action, we will ask them to send all correspondence in writing and this will be passed on to you.

  • If payment is received by Yuill + Kyle on our behalf, how quickly would we be advised of this and what method of notification would be used?

    When we receive the cheque from your debtor, this will be posted to you on the same day. In the event that the debtor has made the payment to us (and not you), we would wait 14 days to ensure the cheque has cleared and then issue you with a cheque from us.

  • Why does Yuill + Kyle ask debtors to make cheques and postal orders payable to you (the client), but ask them to send the cheques directly to Yuill + Kyle’s office?

    This process allows us to monitor the progress of your case. In the event that cheques are sent directly to clients, it is often the case that we are not kept informed of this and are then unaware of developments and positive outcomes for our clients.

  • If payments are received at my offices directly form a customer who is the subject of a pre-sue letter, what is the best way to inform you?

    You can either call or e-mail us to let us know that you have received payment.
