The CPA (Credit Protection Association) can assist CEDIA members, to recover debt owed to your company and to offer you 24/7 legal advice for your business.


About the CPA

The CPA has assisted tens of thousands of businesses since 1914, ensuring their success and prosperity through effective credit management.

The CPA will jump into action helping you as soon as possible after accounts become due for payment (it can still be highly effective even on aged debts).

You will be able to simply input your customer's (debtor's) details, then the CPA will contact the customer with personalised correspondence, reminding them of their obligation to you.


Immediate Response – Goodwill Retained

CPA clients usually receive payment by return or an immediate response following their instructions to CPA.

CPA will subtly requests debtors to pay you direct, thus minimising delay and consolidating the all-important relationship between you and your customers.

On average, in well over 84% of all matters referred, responses are obtained of which most are paid in full (P.I.F).

CPA's On-line debt recovery service is like having a personal cash flow machine at their command when it’s needed as often as needed!
