  • After 30 days non-payment of fees will notify the parent and expect payment within 10 days.
  • Failure to pay this will result in CVSE sending a reminder and charging £15 administration fee, for each subsequent letter sent.

  • After 60 days of non-payment CVSE will, after a final letter sent and 14 days’ notice given, send the debt and any subsequent fees on to a debt collector. We will instruct them to pursue the debt through the court. We will charge a further £50 for this plus any fees we are charged by the debt collector. You will also be liable for any court fees that we incur.
