How to Collect a Debt in Illinois

If you are a small business owner dealing with past due accounts receivable, or if you are having trouble paying your monthly bills and are receiving notices from creditors, you should acquaint yourself with the collection process.  This article will provide a summary of that process.  The narrative will be from the creditor’s perspective, but it will be equally helpful to debtors.

Bear in mind that each of the following steps tends to increase the pressure on the debtor to settle his debt.  Each successive step will only be required if the debtor is non-responsive to the previous steps.  In practice, it is usually unnecessary to take a collections case all the way through Step 7.

STEP 1:  Internal collections procedures:  Before you speak to a collections attorney, you should be sure to refine your own collection procedures.  Every business is different, but the following tips may help you increase your collections on your accounts receivable:

  • In your contracts with your customers, include an attorney-fee provision providing that if either party is required to take action to enforce the contract, the other party will be required to pay attorney fees and other expenses.
  • In your contracts with your customers, include a late fee provision, informing your customers that late fees will be charged on late invoices.
  • On the face of each invoice, you should explain your collection procedures.  Let your customers know in advance that if their invoice is x days past due they will be required to pay late fees, and that if it becomes days past due, the invoice will be sent to collections.
  • Follow up on past due invoices with letters explaining the consequences of continued failure to pay.

If you believe that it will not be possible to collect an account internally, you should hand the account to your attorney to begin a collection suit.
