For most small businesses and freelancers, it’s more cost-effective to let delinquent clients get away with not paying their invoices — or worse, paying with a check that bounces. That’s because it costs more to retain a lawyer to pursue legal action than you’re typically owed by the client. Luckily, even if you can’t afford a lawyer, you can confidently accept personal and business checks from clients because you’ll know you’ll receive payment in the end thanks to the help of a check collection agency.
Rely on the Right Check Collection Service
At Global Check Recovery, as a check collection agency, we don’t charge businesses or freelancers owed money anything for our service, instead passing the cost on to the delinquent payer. We accept as few as one check at a time and work quickly to get the full amount owed to you.
To feel confident that you’ll get the money owed even if a check payment bounces, work within limits set by the check collection agency you plan to turn to in the event of a bad check. At Global Check Recovery, we’ll take any checks for $2,500 or less that are fewer than 180 days old, so work quickly when you receive a bad check and don’t allow clients to write checks for a larger amount. If you’re owed more, break up the invoices into $2,500 each month.
Check recovery is not applicable to 180 days after you receive a bad check, but to 180 days from when the check is dated. Don’t let a check sit for too long once you receive it. Cash it quickly so you can see if it clears and act fast if it doesn’t.
Accepting checks as a form of payment opens up your potential pool of clientele. Don’t let the thought of a few bounced checks stop you from allowing check payments. With a check collection agency like Global Check Recovery on your side, you won’t need a lawyer to get every cent of the money owed to you.
