What’s more, the UK’s impending departure from the EU poses complications for existing regimes for debt recovery across jurisdictions.

Most creditors are familiar with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 which entitles them to interest for late payments and the right to claim reasonable debt recovery costs, unless the supplier has acted unreasonably.  In addition to the foregoing creditors can also charge compensation for the recovery of a debt.  The Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2013 provides “If the reasonable costs of the supplier in recovering the debt are not met by the fixed sum, the supplier shall be entitled to a sum equivalent to the difference between the fixed sum and those costs”.

Just to remind you that because the English debt pre-action protocols do not apply to Scotland you may find it quicker to commence litigation against Scottish debtors by instructing us direct.

As well as saving time – we can institute proceedings immediately – you can save money too!  This is because the equivalent to English issues fees (we call them warrant dues) will be no greater than £120.00.  For actions less than £5,000 they are lower than this. 

And if you instruct Yuill + Kyle you can also ‘plug in’ to the ‘Scottish Judgment Centre’.

Before embarking on what is an unusual litigation let’s have a little reminder.

The key elements which have to exist for a contract to be binding are that:

  • the respective parties have reached an agreement.
  • there is an intention that the agreement should be legally binding
  • ‘consideration’ exists (‘consideration’ does not have to exist in Scotland for a contract to be binding) and

the terms of the agreement are certain enough and sufficiently complete for it to be enforceable.
