Why choose us

Why should you engage us instead of a traditional debt collection agency?
We are more effective

Professional debtors know that debt collectors can’t take legal action. We are licensed to provide legal advice and commence court proceedings.

We are cheaper

We don’t charge hefty commissions or hidden extras on top of our fixed fee. If a debt collection agent can’t collect your debt, they’ll usually hire a lawyer for you. You’ll probably end up paying both!

We are local

We are Western Australia based, with offices in the Perth CBD. Local knowledge, local experience and local service to get your bad debts paid.


We have been in the debt collection/credit control business for almost 40 years.

Upfront Fixed Fees

We will tell you exactly what it will cost and how much you can expect to recover from the debtor, arming you with the information to decide whether a debt is worth pursuing.


Instruct us on new matters and keep track of the progress of existing matters with our easy-to-use website.


What our clients say

After 6 weeks of delays, excuses, and downright lies they paid the amount in full within 36 hours of receiving the notice. Other debt collection companies (who do not have the ability to follow through with court proceedings) were quoting me recovery rates of 15-25% of the amount (so $1.5-$2k). For $44 and literally 15 minutes of my time (including initial registration), I got the same result. It is a huge relief; I am sleeping at night again.
