What is Netback?

Netback is the dollar amount of recoveries minus the fee for service – and IC System offers a higher level of netback.

Low Fees Don’t Mean High Value

The value of an agency can’t be measured solely based on its fees.

  • Low fees could be a warning sign that important features will NOT be applied
  • The penetration rate on accounts could be low
  • They may have high collector-to-account ratios
  • Many agencies charge extra for services like credit reporting, but not IC System

Keeping those potential warning signs in mind, it’s important to make a decision by making a comparison.

For example:

Amount Submitted$20,000$20,000
Amount Collected$1,200 (6%)$3,200 (16%)
