If you miss a payment, the following steps happen automatically:
- We'll send you a reminder within 12 days of a missed payment
- If you don't respond to the reminder within 7 days, you'll get a court summons that includes extra costs of up to £100
- If you still don't pay, the Magistrates Court may give you a Liability Order with extra costs of £31.50, bringing the total costs to £131.50
- Your debt is then passed to our enforcement team and could lead to further increased costs, removal of goods or business insolvency
