    All too often a smokescreen is thrown up by main contractors and work in progress, stage payments, variations to the contract and retentions can prove a minefield to collect for all but the experienced specialist. This is where CRS steps in.

    Instructing CRS at the earliest available opportunity will ensure that the construction debt recovery is maximised. Contracts at various stages will be assessed and where funds permit and a better outcome achieved, CRS will recommend which contracts can be completed. We secure the contract documentation and ensure that the correct paperwork is in place to support contractual and legal procedures. We quickly assess sums which are justifiably due and which can be collected (so long as the debtor has the ability to pay). Don’t take our word for it though, here is what we did for one of our clients…

    An expert Retentions team who can really Raise the Roof!

    Retentions Experts CRS go over and above for a Yorkshire Roofing company and recover 158% of their ledger…

    CRS were appointed by the liquidators of a roofing company in west Yorkshire with an outstanding sales ledger of £180,000. On further investigation attending offices and spending days searching the books and record, CRS discovered retentions due to the company in excess of £250,000 which had not been documented or recorded. None of the retentions had been collected during the entire existence of the company.

    Once collections had been made and retentions that were not statute barred had been recovered, CRS collected a total of £285,000 against what had been advised as a £180,000 ledger. Returning 158% of collections against original company books and records.
