Excel Civil Enforcement

Excel Civil Enforcement was founded in 1991 and delivers outstanding enforcement, collection and associated services to local authorities and central Government departments.

Excel recognises the importance of revenue collection and helps central government and local authorities to recover more.

The directors at Excel have a combined experience of almost 200 years, giving them the insight and experience to drive the business forward whilst having the understanding and knowledge to support their clients effectively and efficiently.

Two directors have held post as President of the Civil Enforcement Association and one as Chairman of the High Court Enforcement Officers Association. Three of Excel's managers also sit on regional IRRV executive boards.

All their enforcement agents are salaried employees – they do not sub-contract to self-employed agents. It is our policy across all the Group companies to only use employed enforcement agents.

All staff, not just enforcement agents, hold fully regulated enforcement qualifications. Customer service staff are qualified to Level 2 in Taking Control of Goods and have accredited training in vulnerability and mental health awareness, giving Excel the most qualified welfare team in the industry.
