Pre-action Protocol and Letters Before Action

Since October 2017, the process a business must undertake before starting court proceedings is governed by the Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims. Classed as a ‘letter before action,’ the Protocol extends the amount of notice a business must give before commencing court proceedings compared to the time allowed under a 7-day letter.
