Typical Collection Agency Fees Percentage of Collected Debt: If you hire a collection agency, they might agree to retain 30% of the debt collected, which means if they are only able to recover 60% of your debt, 30% goes to them. For instance, on a $100 debt, the collection agency fee of 30% means they get $30 even if they only collect $60.
Accounting in collection agencies is pretty straightforward. Debt buyers, on the other hand, have a business model that aligns with their name: they buy debt. Debt purchasers are financial firms, with accounting practices much more similar to large consumer banks than collection agencies.
