Common Questions Regarding Commercial Debt Collection Services

Is there an upfront cost to engage Stanton & Langley?
No. We provide all our commercial collection services on a contingency basis – we get paid only if we collect money due you.


What is a Commercial Collection Agency?
A Commercial Collection Agency provides debt collection services on business to business transactions. If it was a business to business transaction with a sole proprietorship (e.g. not a corporation or limited liability company), then a commercial collection agency can also attempt to collect directly from the individual owner in addition to the company that ordered the product or service. If an individual provides a personal guaranty to a corporate or LLC liability, then a commercial collection agency can also collect from the individual who provided the personal guaranty.


Is account receivable collection the same as a debt collection?
Yes. An account receivable from a business that resulted from providing a product or service is referred to as a debt once a collection agency has been assigned to assist in recovery.


Is a local or national collection agency right for you?
When it comes to debt collection, being local is not critical. The effectiveness of a commercial collection agency is determined far more by the background and training of the collectors, the collection approach, persistence, timely follow-up, and ferreting out myth from reality. Most work is done over the phone or by fax; most research is done via Internet and phone – so location is not a factor.
