Released every month our debt collection blog contains news, stories and tips to keep you informed.
This is an updated review of using the Legal system in the Australian Capital Territory to collect debts.
When collecting debts under $10,000, you must obtain Judgment through the ACT Civil & Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) where different rules apply that are more informal. Once you obtain Judgment in ACAT, you undertake enforcement action through the magistrates court.
