What happens if I don’t pay?
Are you wondering what happens if you don’t pay one or more of your invoices? Here’s what you can expect...
Before we get to that
We’ll have sent several email reminders to you and any other payment contacts added to your Elements account.
Cancelled a Direct Debit?
If a Direct Debit is cancelled with money still owing, this must be paid.
No longer work for the company?
If you no longer work for the company that you used our services for, we still expect to be paid.
A debt collection agency will be instructed
Your debt will be passed to a debt collection agency and they’ll send you a Letter Before Action (LBA) detailing the debts and extra fees owed.
Important! Extra fees become due here and will be added to your debt.
- Interest at a rate of 8% + the Bank of England base rate.
- Debt recovery costs of between £40 – £100.
- Other ‘reasonable costs’ in recovering the debt including but not limited to the cost of instructing a debt collection agency.
Depending on the situation and/or amount owing, you or your company could be subject to one of the following...
- County Court Judgment (CCJ)
- Insolvency proceedings
- Winding up proceedings
How can I make payment?
- Login to your Elements account.
- Go to My account > Invoices and locate your UNPAID invoice(s).
- Click the 'INV' link in the first column to open the invoice.
- Click the green Pay Now button (top left).
