Re: What options do we have to recover debt from UK Agency?

View Post
My company is owed a large amount of money from a UK company, it was for services the UK company had in Switzerland over the new year whereby we provided rented costumes for a film shoot along with some scenic services and supply of transportation to and from the venues.

They have made a number of excuses and now don't reply to emails we send. A final reminder invoice and second reminder (2. Mahnung) well past the deadline. We also sent these by registered post so they received them.

If anyone can advise what they think we should do, what would be the best method to get the payment rapidly as we are a small company and already under pressure with bookings because of the CoronaVirus?

I seriously am considering going over and visiting them face to face but I'm frightened to do this as I have a bad temper and might just knock the CEOs lights out as I feel he intended this to happen all along.
Small Claims Court?

Edit: - I just tried the beginning of the claims process.

>You need to have an address in the UK to make a money claim.
This might be a problem.

Also (I missed the "large" in the original post)

This service is for claims of 10,000 or less.
For claims between 10,001 and 100,000 you might be able to use Money Claim Online (MCOL) (opens in a new window).
