Debt Recovery

COVID-19 provided the most difficult challenge for the debt recovery sector since the financial crisis in 2008. Barry moved quickly to offer outsourced credit control functions to those businesses whom had to furlough or make staff redundant. This strengthened relationships with the client and provided them with essential cash flow to help them through the financial difficulties faced by businesses, due to the pandemic.
