TYPES OF PERSONAL DEBTCredit Card Debt

Regardless of the situation, you aren't alone, and there are solutions available to help you to settle your credit card debt and repair your credit.Student Loan Debt

TYPES OF COMMERCIAL DEBTCommercial Loan
Running a small business is hard, especially in the first few years. And if you're like many small business owners, you might find yourself in need a commercial loan or other agreement with a bank. A vital piece of equipment breaks and you cant afford a replacement, or the business is going through a dry spell and needs a little help making payroll.
Whatever the motivations, these types of arrangements are common. A financial institution supplies the necessary capital to keep the business going, funding large expenses or operational costs and the business agrees to pay back the money, with interest, after a set period of time.
Commercial debt can come with a lot of flexibility, being renewable in some cases, and with the ability to fund a myriad business expenses. But if a dry spell lasts longer than you expect, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed when the bill comes due.
If you need help getting relief from commercial loans, Debt Academy can help.B2B Debt Collection

- Debt Collection
Did you pay the credit card? The personal loan? The medical bill? When you are struggling under multiple debt balances, keeping track of and paying each one can become a burden. There are multiple ways to consolidate your debt into one manageable sum, making it easier to keep under control with one monthly payment, either through balance transfers or consolidation loans.
A consolidation loan is taking out a new loan with a financial institution to help pay off several outstanding debts. This type of debt solution can be helpful if you're having a difficult time staying on budget because of the constant flow of incoming bills. Although this may sound like the easiest option and might leave you with more money at the end of each month, it is not always the best solution. It requires changing spending habits and managing a budget. If not handled correctly, you can find yourself right back in the same predicament or worse.
While overcoming debt may feel impossible, you CAN take control of your situation without taking out a new loan or filing for bankruptcy. It will take discipline, a new budget, maybe additional employment, and commitment, but with the right debt management plan in place, you can overcome your current financial situation and quickly be on your way to recovering your credit without incurring additional debt. .
In the right situations, you may be able to work with creditors to settle some or all of your debt. By negotiating directly with creditors, things like late fees, credit card fees, and even some of the outstanding balance on your debt can be adjusted to make it more manageable. When you negotiate with your creditors for lower rates and better terms, it's possible to make your payments spread further and pull you out of debt faster.
Credit counseling is a big picture service that helps you examine your overall financial situation. Credit counselors take a look at your income, expenses, your credit score. They get an accurate view of your situation and recommend solutions for recovering your credit. Counselors help develop skills, and provide tools and resources that are right for you so that you can take control of your financial future, avoid the same credit traps and live debt free.
While bankruptcy should always be a last resort, it is sometimes the best option or the only option left on the table. It is important to be informed of all that is required and be fully aware of the risks involved in declaring Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
Debt collection can mean two different things, depending on what side of the table you are sitting on right now. If you are a business owner, then you are most likely have consumers with outstanding balances, and you are looking into your options for debt collection and recovering the money owed to you for services rendered. If you are a consumer with unpaid balances owed to a business, you are most likely involved in an effort for that business or service to recover that debt. Either way, a third party often gets involved - a debt collector. This is a company or person, including collection agencies or lawyers, who collect outstanding debts owed to others when those debts are severely past due.
