Compromising Agreements

Why a compromising agreement is the way to go. There is no point in demanding immediate payment in full if the customer cannot pay. Negotiating part payment and rescheduling the debt - confirmed in writing - can help you recover some of the money you are owed and improve the chances of maintaining a good relationship if the customer's problems are only temporary. A compromising agreement could allow for interest and enable you to avoid the effort and expense of taking further action.

It is akin to a trail setting, but the arbitration process is much quicker and cheaper than litigating in court. To speak...
