Skip Tracing for Mercantile Agencies

How can Mercantile Agencies benefit from our Skip Tracing services?

Skip Tracing Australia provides services to Mercantile Agencies to assist with business information, credit reporting, and debt collection. Skip tracing is a valuable tool for several key reasons to enhance its effectiveness and efficiency in its operations:

Here are some key scenarios where Mercantile Agencies will benefit from using our professional Skip Tracing service.

Debt Collection

For legal proceedings in real estate or property management, skip tracing can be used to locate former tenants who have left behind damages or unpaid rent, allowing the company to pursue recovery of these costs.

Asset Discovery

In cases involving judgments or settlements, mercantile agencies may need to locate assets belonging to a defendant or debtor. Skip tracers can identify hidden or obscured assets to ensure fair and enforceable legal outcomes.

Fraud Detection and Prevention

Skip tracing can be an essential component in identifying and preventing fraud, whether it involves uncovering false identities, locating absconded fraudsters, or tracing illicit
financial flows.

Asset Recovery

In situations where a Creditor needs to repossess property or other assets, skip tracing can locate the assets or the individuals holding them, especially if they are trying to
avoid repossession.

Process Serving

Where Respondents must be served with relevant legal documents. If a party is evasive or their whereabouts are unknown, a skip tracer can locate them to ensure they are served, enabling the legal process to continue.

Due Diligence

When a mercantile agency conducts due diligence for clients, particularly in situations involving mergers, acquisitions, or investments, they may need to verify the location and status of various parties or assets. Skip tracing can be a crucial tool in these investigations.

Background Checks

For both litigation and transactional matters, mercantile agencies may need detailed background information on the parties involved. Skip Tracing Australia offers quick and
detailed Background Checks that can uncover useful information that informs case strategy or transaction decisions.

Credit Reporting

Accurate credit reporting requires up-to-date information on businesses and individuals. Skip tracers can help locate those who have moved or changed their contact details without notification, ensuring that credit reports are accurate and reflect the latest information.

By leveraging the skills of a professional skip tracer, a mercantile
agency can enhance its core functions, such as debt collection
and credit reporting, while also supporting broader objectives like
legal compliance, due diligence, and risk management.

Why Outsource?

Outsourcing your skip tracing to professionals rather than using in-house resources can offer several advantages for a company, especially if your business is not specialised in investigative or collection activities.

Here are key reasons to consider outsourcing your skip tracing matters:

Expertise & Experience

Our team of Licensed Private Investigators possess specialised skills, tools, and methodologies that have been earned through years of experience in skip tracing and investigations. We are adept at navigating complex databases, using advanced search techniques, and understanding legal boundaries, which can significantly improve the chances of locating your Subject.

Cost Effectiveness

Establishing an in-house skip tracing operation can be costly, requiring investment in training, software, databases, and personnel. Outsourcing eliminates these overhead costs and converts fixed expenses into variable costs that only occur when services are needed.

Time Efficiency

Professional skip tracers can often locate individuals more quickly than in-house staff due to their expertise and resources. This efficiency allows the company to expedite debt recovery or asset repossession processes, improving cash flow and asset
utilisation. At Skip Tracing Australia, we aim to have your matter completed within 10 Business Days and often have results much sooner than this.

Compliance

Skip tracers in Australia must adhere to legal and regulatory guidelines in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 and, quite often, the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009. Professional skip tracers are across these regulations and can ensure that
their methods are compliant, reducing the company's risk of legal issues. Our Agents also complete mandatory CPE and Mercantile Compliance training.
