Debt Collection in BC
For those not familiar with collecting debt in BC, there are some pitfalls that you should be aware of.
In BC a collection agency must be registered and licensed provincially to collect retail or commercial debt in BC. There are some minor exceptions. However, if the agency you are using is not licensed in BC, you could be subject to liability issues for their actions. These are non-issues when IRS is your collection agency.
In BC an individual or corporate debtor cannot be sued for debt if the account or invoice is more than two years old from date of last payment, or acknowledgement of debt. In BC it is common when larger balance debt is involved for debtors to try and stall out paying for two years. While the debt is still valid for six years in BC, it cannot be pursued in the BC civil courts if over two years old.
In BC a collection agency must send the debtor a formal 5 day notice advising the debtor they have been placed for collection. The agency is not allowed to contact the debtor until the 5 days have passed. However, the debtor can contact the agency when they want. Also in BC, if a debtor tells a collection agency to cease verbal contact, then the agency must cease calling. There are many other laws and minor regulations in BC that affect a collection agency.
