Unlike traditional debt-collection agencies, we tailor our collection methods entirely to the defaulter’s unique characteristics, and urge them to pay, using polite but firm communication. We ensure that the money is paid into your account quickly by means of digital payment links, SMS or e-mail reminders, letters, and targeted debt collection by telephone.
Our ‘no-win-no-fee’ agreement means that you run no risk and never pay too much. Moreover, our services are in most cases entirely free-of-charge for you. Be Paid offers simple rates that also minimise the costs for the defaulter.
If your customer does not accept the amicable process or disputes the invoice, Be Paid can also coordinate the judicial collection process so that you will not have to find a lawyer or a bailiff yourself. We will explain the legal jargon to you in plain language and give you the support you need at all times.
You can reach Be Paid through its online portal 24/7 and are guaranteed a quick start and easy follow-up of your cases at any time.
Firm but always human
Be Paid will do everything possible to avoid high procedural costs and is fully committed to socially responsible debt collection methods. We use firm but polite communication to actively encourage your customer to pay their outstanding invoices.
If we identify a serious debt problem, we will mediate - in consultation with you and with your approval - a fair payment plan and follow it up promptly. A customer-friendly attitude is key in all contacts with your debtors.
Be Paid will always try to find an amicable solution using the most advanced reminder tools and techniques.
We start each case by “profiling” to determine an appropriate debt collection process that is fully tailored to the type of debt and the type of defaulter.
This means that we contact companies in different ways and at different times than private debtors, and that we handle the collection of outstanding hospital bills in different ways from a failure to pay for delivered building materials.
Our personalised Be Paid reminder flows are based on scientific insights into the payment behaviour of people and companies and take into account the most frequent causes of non-payment.
Besides reaching defaulters with clear and understandable messages, prompting payment through “call to actions” is crucial. We also use digital payment links, reminders via SMS, e-mail, messenger apps, and scheduled call actions as much as possible.
This tried and tested approach allows Be Paid to achieve up to 40% more amicable results than other debt-collection partners.
If a debtor still refuses to pay or if a dispute arises, Be Paid will advise you about the possible next steps, without any obligation on your part.
We will then assess the debtor’s financial standing to see if legal recovery is desirable. In this respect, Be Paid works closely together with various business lawyers as well as Legal Recovery, which is Belgium’s largest network of judicial officers.
Amicable debt collection
No win no fee
In other words, if we fail in our mission, we will work for free. In that way, our work is entirely based on results. So, you can safely leave your outstanding invoices to Be Paid with absolutely no risk! Any interest or surcharges that your customer pays on top of the principal are usually sufficient to pay for our work. You will receive the principal collected and will not have to pay us anything else. Should the customer pay only the principal (without interest or compensation), we will only charge a fixed percentage of 10% in commission. This way, with Be Paid you will always know in advance what you will receive.
Your outstanding invoice is worth 1,000 euros. Your terms and conditions provide for a 10% annual interest and 10% compensation in the event of non-payment.
Amount collected €1,200
On this amount, we will charge a commission of 10%, namely €120 excl. VAT or €145.20 incl. VAT. You will receive the remaining amount of €1,054.80.
We also charge a simple rate for legal collection procedures, which means that you will always receive 100% of the invoice amount if the collection procedure is successful.
The statutory compensation paid by the debtor for late payment will serve to reimburse us for the start-up, follow-up, and completion of your case.
Moreover, our judicial officers will only take action if collection can be expected. If after the start of proceedings, it turns out that the defaulter is or has become insolvent, your risk will be limited to the cost of the initiating claim (the writ of summons or the notice for the recovery of undisputed debts).
If your customer disputes your claim, and one of our lawyers has to draw up a statement or carry out additional work, you will only pay a limited commission. The legal counsel acting on your behalf will always charge transparent fees and will consult with you during the process so that you will always know what your chances of success are.
Companies mostly use our ‘No-win-no-fee’ collection service, but we can also arrange:
- Demands for payment sent by a judicial officer by registered mail; √
- Starting a process for the recovery of undisputed debts or serving a summons; √
- Reviewing and optimising your terms and conditions of sale; √
- A financial investigation of a debtor (debts, cars, bank accounts, etc.). √
