Serving a Statutory Demand

A Statutory Demand is an effective form of Debt Recovery when used correctly. Usually before a Winding-up Petition or Bankruptcy Petition can be presented to Court, a Statutory Demand must have been served on the debtor first. This will show the Court the debtor is unable to pay their debts as they fall due.

If you need to organise the service of a Statutory Demand anywhere in England then we can assist you for a fixed fee of 87.50 plus VAT.

Demands are relatively straightforward to complete. You then instruct a Process Server to Serve a Statutory Demand for you. You would need to send the completed Demand to us for it to be served correctly on the debtor.

Once served the Statutory Demand gives the debtor a limited amount of time to deal with the debt or potentially they face bankruptcy proceedings. A Statutory Demand is an excellent way of collecting an overdue account.

You can download a copy of the relevant demand by selecting one of the links to the right 'in this section'. Please ensure you send us the correct demand for service. Use: -
