Our flagship debt collection product, the Delta Credit Manager, has a twenty year pedigree and now
incorporates the abilty to submit County Court claims, judgments and warrants electronically to the
County Court Bulk Centre (CCBC).
In line with Civil Justice strategy, 49 courts have been designated for phased closure.
The Government wants you to interact with the Court Service using data links; existing paper submission of
claims (form N1) will become slower.
Court fees are signifcantly cheaper - around £20 per claim/ £30 per warrant of execution.
20 x claims and 10 x warrants equates to a Court fee saving of £700 per month, alone.
Our software rents for way under this figure and comes with other benefits:-
- Same day processing - (before 10am)
- Speed - with our brilliant and easy-to-use case management system, your collection process
is streamlined, freeing up significant man hours
- Accounting integration - transfer receivables data using our CSV import facility
- Charges - interest, Court fees and Solicitors fixed costs are calculated automatically
- Late Payment Act - penalties range from £40 to £100 per invoice
- Fixed Solicitors costs - minimum of £50 per claim, £22 per judgment
- Case Management - share detailed case notes across your network
Civil Procedure Rules
Practice direction 7C - CCBC - Claim processing software
The County Court Bulk Centre (CCBC) and the Claim Production Centre (CPC) were set up under rule 7.10
of the Civil Procedure rules to permit the production of claims, judgments, warrants of execution and
paid data by means of electronic data transmission.
The current initiative by the Court service is to require all medium to large corporates and businesses
who issue claims above a certain quantity to transmit their claim data for the collection of simple trade
debts via the CCBC in Northampton.
The acceptance of volume paperwork to issue claim forms (N1), default judgments (N225) and warrants of
execution (N323) will be phased out in favour of transmission of data files via the CCBC.
See parts 7
of the Civil Procedure Rules.
We supply debt collection software which can interface with your existing accounting software such as SAP,
Oracle, Navision, Dynamics or Sage.
The monthly rental cost of the software is more than offset by the saving in Court fees.
Debtor data can be uploaded and refreshed automatically.
Our low-cost solution streamlines the electronic interaction with the Court Service, links with your accounting
system and brings many benefits:-
Membership of the CCBC is free
We would be pleased to explain the file build and transmission processes to you.
Jurisdiction - England and Wales
Civil procedure rules govern the practice and procedure to be followed in the Civil courts.
They consolidate the previous Supreme court rules and County court rules and aim to ensure that
the civil justice system is accessible, fair and efficient and the rules are both simple and
simply expressed. The civil procedure rules are made by the civil procedure rule committee.
Rules of membership should be read in conjunction with Civil Procedure Rule 7.10 and the
accompanying Practice Direction (7C).
The purpose of the CCBC is to relieve County Courts of the routine, repetitive tasks associated
with the processing of large volumes of debt claims in the areas of:-
- pre-judgment work
- entry of judgment (including registration)
- post judgment work (issue of warrants of execution and transfers for enforcement)
The role of the CCBC is confined to the following areas of debt case progression:
- issue of claims on magnetic media via the Claim Production Centre (CPC) (see CPC Code of Practice)
- initial court contact for handling defences and part admissions
- entry of judgment by acceptance, default or determination
- registration of judgments
- issue and reissue of warrants of execution
- transfer up to The High Court for enforcement by writ of fi fa
- transfer of cases for any other form of enforcement other than a warrant of execution
Authority to issue through the Centre:-
Any claimant wishing to make use of the CCBC shall be an authorised user of the CPC under
CPR Rule 7.10.
Each claimant shall agree to issue all CPC debt claims in the name of the
Northampton County Court (County Court code number: 335).
User/claimant data - CCBC control
The County Court Bulk Centre provides you with sequences of claim and warrant of execution numbers to use.
The numbers are drawn off as you issue claims and warrants.
Legal actions are controlled from a central Legal Action processing screen.
Claims are issued on a simple 'point-and-shoot' basis. The type of pleading and type of interest is selected, along
with solicitor's fees (if applicable). The data accumulates until you are ready to produce the day's claim issue
file, ready for easy transmission to the CCBC. They produce all the N1 and N9 paperwork which is served on the
defendant. You receive acknowledgement from the CCBC.
