excellent feedback from clients who have used the service:
"I am a sole trader and in the
last year have found myself in a financial nightmare - but I was lucky enough to find the Business
Debtline. However there are thousands of small businesses out there going to the wall who are not
aware of this wonderful charity. I did not know which way to turn or what my rights were. I am a
long way from getting things right but feel stronger for BDL help and advice. It is the only
lifeline available to us." - a user of the MoneySavingExpert.com forums

Companies that charge for advice. You may come across companies who
offer to sort out your debts on payment of a fee. Be very careful to look at what the company is
promising to do for you before sending them any money. Some of these companies say they will get
your creditors to write off part or all of your debts. Unless you have special circumstances, this
is unlikely to happen. These companies may also not give sufficient advice on dealing with your
business debts and only assist with personal debts. Our service is completely free; phone us for
