As a proven debt recovery organisation who has recovered debts for over 30,000 small business owners we are well positioned to comment on what is happening in the debt recovery area for small to medium businesses. Increasing numbers of Australian small to medium businesses are in big trouble. If you do not put debt recovery action in place NOW then you may never see your money.

The cause of their troubles in an already slowing Australian economy is spelled out in a current article in the Australian Financial Review:

“Insolvency experts say the record number of wind-up applications against Australian small to medium businesses filed by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) in the past six months indicates an aggressive approach taken towards struggling businesses and means legal action, forcing such companies to pay up or go into liquidation will continue to rise.

“There were 568 wind-up applications in September, following 580 wind-ups in May, well exceeding the ATO’s long-term average of 92 wind-ups a month.”

If you are owed money by an Australian small to medium business you must take debt recovery action NOW or you may never see your money.

Let me assist you with our proven debt recovery service. Because of our Policy of NO COLLECTION – NO COMMISSION, we are especially motivated to successfully collect your money. Contact me NOW so you can get some action underway!

Chris Nicholls
Area Manager
Sydney Northern Beaches & Newcastle

My name is Chris Nicholls, I look after the Northern Beaches and Newcastle areas, and I’ve been an Area Manager for EC now for almost 14 years.

My main role at EC is meeting with business owners to show how EC’s Clients benefit from using the correct and compliant paperwork, and how to successfully recover monies owed. On my weekends I enjoy spending time with my 2 sons and helping them renovate their first investment property at Newcastle.

Over the past 14 years, I’ve seen EC’s array of services, systems, policies, and procedures dramatically advance to the point where EC has quite literally become an industry leader in the field of business and credit management.

The most interesting part of working with EC is meeting with and working with our clients because every client’s business is unique and evolving, and the part I appreciate most about working with EC is knowing that my clients always receive 1st class service whenever they deal with other members of the EC team. This is the single biggest factor that’s led to my longevity in the company: the consistently high standard of support both I and my clients receive from a great Customer Service team, talented Terms of Trade Department (backed up by a firm of Sydney city solicitors), and a powerful Collections Department. Our clients are in very safe hands when engaging EC Credit Control for all Credit Management services.
