3. Debt collection agencies

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) can collect your debt through a private debt collection agency.

The agency will write to you and you should pay them directly.

Debt collection agencies used by HMRC are:

  • 1st Locate (trading as LCS)
  • Advantis Credit Ltd
  • Akinika Debt Recovery Ltd
  • Apex Credit Management Ltd
  • Bluestone Credit Management Ltd
  • CCS Collect (also known as Commercial Collection Services Ltd)
  • Drydensfairfax Solicitors

If you have Self Assessment or VAT debt and don’t respond to contact from a debt collection agency, agents from Rossendales Ltd or Resolvecall Ltd might visit you to collect your debt in person.
