Debt Collection for Vets

Unfortunately, bad debts and non paying customers is an all too common problem for many veterinary practices in the UK with millions being owed in unpaid vet bills. A specialist Debt Collection for Vets service in the UK can play an important role in minimising this issue.

The problem was highlighted last year by the British Veterinary Association after their ‘Voice of the Veterinary Profession’ survey. The survey aimed to try and get a better understanding with regards to scale of the problem in modern day Britain.

Rather surprisingly, the survey found that around nine in ten vets have performed work that they have not been paid for at some time of another. Even more startling is that the average monthly bad debt owing is reported to be around £676.

Veterinary practices are a valuable asset to any community in terms of the service that they provide in terms of assistance for pets and their owners. They have to be sustainable businesses if they are to continue caring for sick animals and this is only possible if they are paid for the work they do in a prompt and courteous manner.

A solid and effective credit control strategy can certainly minimise the impact that non paying customers have but what happens when that is not enough and does not provide the required results. It is very important to remember that No Veterinary practice has ever lost a customer simply because they were asked to pay for treatment.

One solution for those that are trying to avoid paying what is rightfully due, is procuring the services of a reputable debt collection specialist who has industry experience. More specifically  in dealing with the recovery and collection of unpaid vets bills. The value of a Professional Debt Collection partner should not be under estimated.
