– 1988

Commercial & Domestic Investigations was established after obtaining a licence from the OFT allowing us to support businesses of all sizes in all aspects of debt recovery. This included credit reporting, credit brokerage as well as credit control. Our success in this field and our dedication to providing the best possible results and service meant that we quickly grew from just 3 members of staff to 12.

– 1991

After outgrowing our current premises we relocated to larger premises to house our growing team which stood at 20. Our client base grew steadily as our collections results went from strength to strength.

– 2006

Due to our ongoing success we relocated to purpose built, 9000 sq ft office space enabling us to grow further. At this time we also became members of the Credit Services Association in order to enhance our customer experience, by updating and improving our processes and increasing our productivity further. This resulted in an enhanced customer experience and overall satisfaction due to the continued services and results we are able to provide.


With over 80 members of staff based across the UK covering all areas of debt recovery and covering a host of specialist areas we are able to be best placed to deal with all aspects of credit control, debt recovery and dispute resolution. Our move from our OFT licence to our full Financial Conduct Authority licence gives us the powers to deal with all types of accounts whilst ensuring that we work to the highest possible industry standards.

We continue to go from strength to strength and continually work to ensure we are at the forefront of developments in our field enabling us to continue to provide our clients with a first class service.
