Serving a Statutory Demand

If you need to organise the service of a Statutory Demand anywhere in England or Wales then we can assist you with service of this for a fixed fee of 87.50 plus VAT.

When the individual or company that owes you money (the ‘debtor’) receives (is served) a statutory demand, they have 21 days to either:

If they fail to pay or reach an agreement with you then you could apply to bankrupt the debtor or wind-up and close the company.

The Statutory Demand when used correctly, on undisputed debts above 750.00 for companies and 5000 for individuals and less than 6 years old, is an excellent form of Debt Recovery.

Once served the Statutory Demand gives the debtor a limited amount of time to deal with the debt or potentially face bankruptcy or closure of their business. There is no need for Court action and the Demand can be served very quickly.

You can download a copy of the relevant demand by selecting one of the links to the right 'in this section'. Please ensure you send us the correct demand for service. They can also be downloaded from

You would then use a Process Server to Serve the Statutory Demand. We serve Statutory Demands throughout England and Wales for a fixed fee. Once served we will provide you with a Certificate of Service to confirm the Statutory Demand has been served on the debtor.

To instruct a process servers to serve a Statutory Demand you can post us the papers for service together with a further copy so we can exhibit this to our certificate of service. Alternatively, you could scan and email us a signed copy of the demand to serve. We can also arrange for collection of the demand from you but a collection fee would apply.

The vast majority of instructions are dealt with and managed through our Head Office giving you a single point of contact. Our Head office will allocate the service of the demand to our local process server who will attend the property to serve the Statutory Demand. We will make multiple visits to the address when required.

Typically we serve Statutory Demands for a fixed fee of 87.50 plus VAT. An additional charge would apply for collecting the papers. We would attend the address up to three times if required for the fixed fee.
