A Collection Agency Collecting Commercial Debt in the US



Collecting commercial debt with a collection agency can have its pitfalls. Be suspicious, if a collection agency tells you collecting commercial debt will never require a state collection agency license. Contrary to popular belief, some states require a collection agency to be licensed when collecting commercial debt or accounts from businesses or commercial residents located in their state. Even if no agency license for collecting commercial debt is needed in a specific state, there are states that have Laws that can have an effect on a collection agency when collecting commercial debt.
