Hi,
Thank you.
Your options are:
1. Expensive option - contemplate court action - this is an undisputed debt so you could sue them to recover the money and then send the bailiffs in as a enforcement process. You would need to send a 7 day letter warning that if they do not pay you will commence proceedings https://www.moneyclaim.gov.uk/web/mcol/welcome - you can commence proceedings here;
2. In expensive option - if the debt is not disputed you could serve them with a statutory demand - it is a precursor to bankruptcy - the state demand forms are here - https://www.gov.uk/statutory-demands/overview
It will put them under massive pressure to pay as it comes with a 21 days penal notice - if they then do not pay you can commence winding up proceedings;
3. You try and agreement an installment plan with then - this will still keep the pressure on but at least you will have some money coming in.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards
