QCAT can hear and determine debt recovery actions up to $25,000
The minor debt jurisdiction includes disputes over money owed for goods; money loaned; a contract default; and payments for business, household, and personal services in each case where the payment due is for a fixed sum.
QCAT offers inexpensive and relatively quick informal mediations. If not resolved by that means, the dispute will be determined by a Tribunal member at a hearing.
Lawyers are generally not permitted to appear in QCAT but can prepare accurate and persuasive claims and submissions that apply the relevant laws to the facts of the dispute.
Our fixed fee package for written advice; claim/defense preparation and accompanying submissions is $1,500 plus GST. Terms apply. QCAT filing fee (claims only) is an additional $380.
If the unpaid debt is more than $25,000 or if you prefer to litigate in court, we can assist with the pursuit of the claim in the Magistrates Court or District Court.
