Welcome to Scott and Mears

Scott & Mears the professional debt recovery specialist company, was founded in 1991 by Bill Baddeley.  He was disillusioned at the level of service offered to clients in addressing their debt recovery and decided to create a debt collection service that had customer service at it's core.

Since that time Scott & Mears has been providing clients with an unrivalled level of service and professionalism in the recovery of delinquent accounts across a wide range of business sectors including retail, finance, property and manufacturing.

We have helped hundreds of clients to recover millions of pounds from thousands of debtors.  Don’t be one of the hundreds of firms that suffer from reduced profits, administration or liquidation because your debtors have stopped paying you.  Thirty eight BILLION pounds are owed to the nation’s small businesses and 25% of all businesses going into liquidation do so because they are owed money.  Frightening statistics – do not become part of them – ACT TODAY.

If it is possible to legally collect your debt, we will recover it.
