Finding debtors is all about what information you can access. The truth is we can access better information quickly and cost effectively for you. It means you can get on with more important things.

Finding people who owe you money yourself is hard, because they know they owe money they make attempts to stay under the radar. Luckily there are ways that you can increase your chances of finding them either by yourself or through a tracing agency such as ourselves.

The key thing to remember is to obtain as much information as possible about a person at the start of any business relationship. It can be hard and it can be awkward to ask people such personal information especially when you don’t want to lose a sale but it holds the key to a successful trace. How to find debtors comes down to the key facts you obtain from a person right back when they owe you nothing but want something from you, this is the only time you have the power so make the most of it and get as much information as you possibly can.

These key facts you need to know about someone so that you can find them should you need to are as follows.

  • Their full name
  • Date of birth
  • Last Known address

This is the key information. A business address is sufficient if this is all you have.

Their partners name, their business address and all telephone numbers – This is secondary information but should the key information not bring up any matches then this information can really help to trace the person to a new address.

It does sound negative to have to prepare to have someone not pay you but it is good to have this information on file in case it is required. If you have all the key data Relative have an 87% chance of finding the debtor, if you have the secondary information too it’s over 90%.
