Course Overview

Debt collection is the process of following up on payments due by debtors (businesses or individuals). Organisations specialising in debt collection are known as collection agencies or debt collectors. Collectors work on behalf of creditors to get debtors to clear pending payments, for a fee or commission.

Debt collection and recovery are extremely important because cash flow issues could lead to serious organisational challenges. A point to note is that though debt collection and debt recovery are almost used synonymously, there is a slight difference between the two.

This course will empower you with complete knowledge and information about debt collection, recovery, negotiation, and credit control management.
