Issuing a Statutory Demand

Process Serving Statutory Demand


If you need to issue a Statutory Demand then we can assist you with this.

Issuing a Statutory Demand is relatively straightforward task to undertake. You would simply complete the relevant form and send this to a Process Server for service. The Process Server would ensure the Demand is served in such a way as to comply with the Insolvency Rules. Failure to serve the demand correctly could make it a pointless exercise so care should be taken to ensure it is served correctly!

You can download a copy of the relevant statutory demand forms by selecting one of the links to the right 'in this section'. You can either download the Statutory Demand as a PDF file or as a MS Word document. Typically you would use: -

The Demand is an effective form of Debt recovery. Once served the Demand gives the debtor a limited amount of time to deal with it or they could face the possibility of Bankruptcy Proceedings being commenced against them.

If you would like to issue a Statutory Demand then we can serve the Statutory Demand for you anywhere in England or Wales for a fixed fee of 87.50 plus VAT.

The quickest way to instruct a process server would be to scan and email a signed a dated copy of the Statutory Demand for service.
