Debt Recovery for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

Understanding the Debt Recovery Process

When a customer fails to settle an invoice after repeated attempts at collection, it's time to consider legal action. Here's where the DRT comes into play. Established under the Recovery of Debts Due to Banks and Financial Institutions Act 1993, the DRT offers a streamlined process for expediting debt recovery, particularly for banks and financial institutions.

However, SMEs can also leverage the DRT system under specific conditions. Justice League Lawyers can guide you through this process, which typically involves:

  • Issuing a Legal Notice: The first step involves sending a formal legal notice to the defaulter, outlining the outstanding amount and demanding immediate payment. Justice League Lawyers can draft a clear and concise notice that leaves no room for misinterpretations.
  • DRT Application: If the legal notice fails to yield results, Justice League Lawyers will prepare and file an application with the DRT on your behalf. This application details the claim, including relevant documentation like invoices and agreements.
  • DRT Hearing: Following the application, a hearing will be scheduled before the DRT. Justice League Lawyers will represent you in court, presenting your case effectively and ensuring all your rights are protected.
  • Order and Recovery: If the DRT rules in your favor, a recovery order will be issued against the defaulter. Justice League Lawyers will then assist you in enforcing this order through various methods, such as attachment of bank accounts or sale of assets.

Should the DRT's decision be unfavorable, Justice League Lawyers can guide you through an appeal process at the DRAT.
