Emma Miller, Top Service Company Director says;

“With court fee’s increasing and the restrictions on winding up petitions remaining in place we are seeing more and more customers reviewing their current collection methods and looking for alternatives to court action. At Top Service we have adapted our collections methods to suit the struggles of contacting companies who are working from home and potentially on furlough – achieving great results. We advise members to look at their options for collection, take advice from their collections service provider on the best course of action and consider all options.”
