Veritas Legal Services, Client Testimonials

Veritas Legal has successfully recovered debt for clients across the South West, the UK and across the globe using debt recovery legislation and our professional approach to credit control. Here’s a small selection of the positive feedback we have received.

James Guthrie, Director.

"Essilor have been using Veritas Legal for several years now. What impresses us most is the speed in which instructions are acted upon and the high collection rate.

Our debtors quite literally have a strong and robust letter before action from Veritas on their desktop within hours of instruction. The demand is for both our principal debt plus late payment interest and compensation. Usually this is all that is required to secure repayment of our debt and this costs us nothing. 

On the rare occasion that letters alone have not prompted payment, we have followed up with statutory demands and court action with great success. 

Last year Veritas tested the robustness of our retention of title clause in our terms and conditions, again with great success. What else can we say, except thank you very much Veritas – you are the best!"

Karen Locke - Finance and Commercial Administration Manager. Essilor.

"Thank you for recovering £2933.06 and transferring it into our account.

I must compliment you on your fast efficient and effective service in collecting from the debtor. After receiving our instruction your same day contact without being offensive had the immediate required effect."

Chris Blackadder - Managing Director. Howorths Textiles Ltd.

"Veritas have provided us with an effective and efficient service in collecting long outstanding fees due.

A service which we have been very happy with and have since recommended to our own clients."

Steve Williams - Director. Sheppard Rockey & Williams - Chartered Accountants.

"Your services have helped us save time and recovered late debtor monies.

Thank you very much for an efficient service that allows us to concentrate on our day to day routines"

Sue Smith - Club Accountant. Exeter City Football Club, Exeter, Devon.

“We were recommended to Veritas by a fellow member of our trade body and could immediately see why the recommendation was so justified.

Veritas got on the case from the minute they were instructed and assessed the viability of the debt before any further work was undertaken.

A strong and robust letter before action went to the first debtor that we passed to them, which resulted in the debt plus late payment interest and compensation being paid within 48 hours.

The next case required a statutory demand to be served on our debtor after they had ignored all correspondence. Again this produced payment of the debt and late payment interest and compensation within 7 days of service.

I cannot recommend this company highly enough.”

Ian Bray - Managing Director. Fleetwheel Commercial Motor Factors, Cardiff, Wales.

“When we instruct Veritas Legal our debtors know that we mean business.

The success rate we have enjoyed with this company is phenomenal. Cannot recommend highly enough”

Sam - Black Cat Exhibitions, Colaton Raleigh, Devon.

"Chasing bad debts is both time consuming and costly to small businesses like ours so when a customer refuses to pay their invoice having a fast and efficient company to do the chasing for you is vital, Veritas Legal is one such business.

Having never had to chase a bad debt before Veritas Legal explained very clearly to us the processes he would take and all costs that would be added to the debt.

We instructed Veritas Legal to go ahead and within a week the client had agreed to pay our outstanding bill plus interest. I cannot recommend Veritas Legal highly enough for the fast and friendly way they dealt with what can be a very difficult matter."

Richard Netherclift - Managing Director. Insignia Creative Ltd, Torquay, Devon.

"We have instructed Veritas over many years and have always been very impressed with the professional, personal service we have received and can highly recommend them."

Nick Sturt CSRT CSSW - Exeterminators & Co. Ltd, Topsham, Exeter, Devon.

"We have used Veritas legal for the last 4 years and quite simply the service is superb.

All the hassle is a taken out of what can be a very messy and expensive process. Thank you Veritas."

Anthony Rew - Rew Hotels

"I have known Veritas legal now for over 5 years and in that time I have found the company to be very effective with the occasional problems we find ourselves in with certain clients.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Veritas, as I have done on a number of occasions.

Veritas legal offer a no nonsense approach. If you need someone to collect a debt or offer an honest straight forward opinion then give them a try. If you want a huge bill, lots of waffle and no outcome stay with your current legal company!"

Dean Croft - Paramount Personnel, Exeter, Devon.

"“We have used the services of Veritas Legal for several years.

James and his team skillfully manage to produce outstanding results, whilst at the same time preserving ongoing relationships.

I value their contribution & regularly recommend them to both suppliers & customers.”

Robert Crang - Non Executive Chairman. Hercules Hydraulics Ltd.

"I must comment on the excellent service provided by James and the Veritas Legal team.

On each occasion we have needed help with debt recovery the response and end result has always been prompt and extremely professional.

Steve Brewer - Managing Director. South Devon Optical, Newton Abbot, Devon.

"We have worked with James Guthrie and Veritas Legal Services for approximately six years using their services mainly to collect outstanding debts on business recovery and insolvency cases.

We have been pleased with the results. We would have no hesitation in recommending James and Veritas Legal Services."

Mr Jerry O’ Sullivan - Partner / Head of Business Recovery & Insolvency. Bishop Flemming, Exeter, Devon.

"If you want a debt collected go to Veritas.

James managed to claw back a 2 year old Canadian remittance for us in a matter of days. Worth every penny that it cost us"

Victoria Whitbread - Director. Whitbread Wilkinson.

"Bob Hill Haulage Ltd is a small family run Haulage Company operating in the the South Devon Area. It is imperative that we keep a tight control of our financial position in particular credit control.

We have been using Veritas Legal Services for six years now on a number of individual occasions, where we have not alone been able to secure payment for our services.

What appealed to us at the outset was this was very much a local company who were able to take our instructions on and liaise with us on a regular basis by email, fax and over the telephone, very much a personal approach.

They have handled all our cases with tact and professionalism and have been 100% successful in securing our debts, plus late payment interest and compensation, which has given us a free debt recovery service that is second to none.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Veritas Legal Services to other businesses."

Sara Thornton - Company Director. Bob Hill Haulage, Totnes, Devon.

"Dear James,

I am writing to say how much we at Irvine Nott value the services that have been provided to us by Veritas Legal and would firstly state that we have found the overall service to be prompt and efficient and surpassing all our expectations.

One of the cases that Veritas successfully completed on our behalf related to a debt incurred over three years ago and we were pleasantly surprised to receive not only the principal debt but also late payment interest and compensation, which turned out to be a most substantial figure.

I would not hesitate in therefore recommending Veritas Legal Services to any other business."

T E Dickinson BSc FRICS IRRV - Chartered Valuation Surveyor. Irvine Nott, Torquay, Devon.

"Dear James, Just a short line to thank you for achieving such an impressive result - and so quickly.

We have used two so called credit agencies over the last 8 months and all to no avail. They appear to simply go through the motions but lack the final bite. Forgive my cynicism, I just did not believe you would be able to collect an outstanding debt, plus a late payment fee, plus interest.

Keep up the good work!"

John Western - Chief Executive. Brunel Road Timber, Newton Abbot, Devon.

"In Veritas Legal Services we have at last found a Company that does exactly what they say they will do and that is to recover debts!

In less than a year of trading with James he has managed to recover 2 debts that other agencies failed to collect and even recovered the majority of a debt where the customer moved to France as a means to avoid paying creditors.

Needless to say all late payers are now passed his way! If, as I was, you are not convinced, then try for yourself. I'm sure you won't be disappointed."

Nigel Drew - Director. Civil Solutions Ltd, Newton Abbot, Devon.
