None. 100% of the money recovered is paid directly to your business.
Many customers assume there will be no consequence for failure to pay a bill. As an ACB Member, you can record a permanent blemish on a non-paying customer’s credit report. The blemish is a highly effective consequence, so you can expect to collect bad debt quickly and in full.
Some consumers may tell you that they don’t care. But the fact is that a severe credit blemish recorded on their credit history for up to seven years makes it difficult for customers to get credit. It’s not unusual for your client to eventually pay a past due bill years later—when seeking credit approval to buy a home, for example.

Since 1992, when Martin Ferrell identified a need in the business community for a more efficient and cost-effective way for business owners to manage their receivables and recover balances in a timely manner. The traditional method of hiring a collection agency has generally been viewed as a measure of last resort due to high collection fees and the negative impact on customer relationships. Mr. Ferrell, using his extensive experience, developed a systematic process for collecting outstanding balances without relying on a traditional collection agency.
