Mike Stankard, Recruitsafe
Irish Liquidations have been using StubbsGazette Debt Recovery services for several years. We have found them to be extremely professional with excellent collection figures. They utilise market leading collection software which provides us with real time access to all debtor files including daily cash balances and collector notes. With a commission only fee structure you could not ask for more. I would happily recommend any company to use StubbsGazette for their debt collection services
Jonathan Larbey, Irish Liquidations
Texoil ltd have been using the Stubbs gazette Demand Letters from early 2008. Given the current tough economic environment, we have found them very helpful with regard to getting paid quicker. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.

Skerries Credit Union
Since we started using Stubbs for our Debt Collection Letters our recovery of overdue accounts has increased significantly, we are delighted with the StubbsGazette letters and it is now an essential tool in our debt collection process
Mary Newgent, Manager Skerries Credit Union.
In 2008 Wicklow County Council decided to work with StubbsGazette to help the council in its Debt Recovery activity. Since then, the council has found StubbsGazette Letters to be a very effective means of generating a response from debtors and equally in the collection of commercial rates and various other charges / fees. They deliver a quality service and the StubbsGazette Letters undoubtedly gets debtors attention. The Regional Account Manager, Kevin Barry is very responsive and has a thorough understanding of the councils needs. We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with StubbsGazette.
Anne Byrne, Revenue Section
Anderson Norton Property Management
StubbsGazette demand letters have become an essential tool in our Debt Recovery process. We started using the letters a few months ago to collect management fees, and the results were terrific with a dramatic improvement to our collection rates. We would highly recommend these letters to other property management companies.
In June 2011 Kilkenny Local Authorities engaged the services of StubbsGazette in an effort to collect outstanding commercial rates. Our reasoning for engaging Stubbs is that their name is universally recognised and the StubbsGazette brand is reputable both nationally and internationally. A key element in our debt collection strategy is the use of the StubbsGazette logo on all initial and follow up correspondence to commercial rate customers of Kilkenny Local Authorities. The aim is to show that we are proactive in collecting any outstanding amounts that may be due to us. We managed to maintain a high level of collections in this income category in 2011 and I am confident that our use of the Stubbs logo was a contributing factor to this strong performance.I would expect that we will continue our contract with Stubbs for the use of their logo when it comes up for renewal.
