Safe Collections


Safe Collections are experts in the recovery of unpaid invoices and contractual balances in the UK and across the globe. Incorporated in 1984 they have over thirty years’ experience in recovering what you are owed in a professional, ethical and transparent manner.

They provide both domestic UK debt recovery from their offices in the heart of Lancashire and International debt collection via an exclusive worldwide network of trusted debt recovery affiliates. With rates starting at just 5% of any recovered amount.

Safe Collections come with our own recommendation, as The Publishers Association has successfully used their debt recovery services on a number of occasions to recover our own unpaid invoices.

Unusually for a collections agency, Safe Collections have a “no collection = no commission” promise that means you are only ever charged when your money is recovered. Plus:

  • No binding fixed-term contracts.
  • No advance or membership fees.
  • No abortive fees and no hidden charges.

As part of your membership package, we have negotiated preferential fees for debt recovery from Safe Collections, with UK rates starting from just 5% of any recovered amount.

Benefits of the service include:

  • Discounted rates for PA members.
  • Free debt recovery support and advice.
  • Regular updates on cases.
  • Constant debtor monitoring.
  • Full legal cover across the UK and Internationally.

Safe Collections services can be used in conjunction with many credit insurance policies, however please check with your insurer prior to instruction.
