We charge our commission plus GST on any money collected from the debtor. This means we have just as much incentive as you to recover the debt as we only receive a commission once the debtor starts paying.
Payouts are made quarterly in March, June, September and December and our commission is deducted at the time of each payout. You will receive a statement with a breakdown of the amount being paid well in advance of the payment.
By lodging a debt you agree to these charges and that NZC will utilise tracking and any District Court enforcement options available. Our prices may change depending on supplier charges and changes to our service.
As of 1 August 2020, all new debts lodged will have our new pricing structure as follows: Commission: 20%+GST of monies collectedCollection Fees: 25% of debt lodged Collection fees are added to the debt if a debt collection clause is applicable. We do not add GST to the top of the debt. We reserve the right to lower commission on larger debts lodged with us and we will continue to review our processes and policies relating to larger debts.
Cancellation of debt: Full commission or a minimum of $750 depending on the amount of work NZC has done on the file.
District Court Enforcement
If you are a Property Manager client of NZC, NZC may cover some of the costs of tracking and/ or enforcement which includes Solicitor and District Court application fees.
The District Court will then add these costs to the top of the debt to be paid by the debtor and recover these costs first before making pay-outs to the creditor.
If you are not a Property Manager, there will be some upfront costs to you if we need to enforce the debt through the District Court or perform tracking.
Enforcement costs are added to the top of the original debt to be paid by the debtor. NZC will recover any enforcement costs from the debtor’s repayments as per the Terms and Conditions Basic Tracking
