TASK 1:  Research Task / Short Answer Questions

Email subject:  Research for Larry’s Landscapes Pty Ltd    
  Hi there,   A new client, Larry’s Landscapes Pty Ltd, based in Victoria, has contacted us to seek advice and assistance on a debtor matter.  Larry’s Landscapes has completed work for a client, Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd, who hasn’t paid the final tax invoice.  Larry is the owner of Larry’s Landscapes and has never been in this position before, has no debtor policy or procedures in place and has exhausted all debt collection avenues that he is aware of.  Larry is seeking our advice on what further action can be taken.   Larry has advised the following: Larry sent Molly, the owner of Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd a quote before starting the work, see quote Q6204 attached.Tax invoice 6204 to Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd is now 45 days overdue. A copy of the tax invoice is attached.Larry sent Tax Invoice 6204 for payment of the final project balance to Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd on the day the pool construction and landscaping was complete which detailed the 14-day credit terms. Larry contacted Molly from Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd by email with a copy of the Tax Invoice 12 days after this to remind her that payment was due in two (2) days.Larry left a message by phone five (5) days after the invoice had fallen due and payable (19 days after completion of the project) and sent an email of the overdue invoice as well, as a payment reminder.Larry tried to contact Molly from Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd by telephone fourteen (14) days after the due date and left a message with the receptionist, but Molly did not return his call.Larry sent Molly from Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd a reminder email with a copy of the original signed quote and tax invoice twenty-eight (28) days after the invoice had fallen due and payable.  Larry has not received a response to this email.   I would like you to do some research to familiarise yourself with Australian laws and regulations so we can provide Larry with the advice he is seeking.

Instructions to students:

Refer to Larry’s Landscapes Tax Invoice 6204 and Quote Q6204 and use the resources provided and conduct your own research to answer the following questions. All questions must be answered, and references must be provided.

Question 1

According to the guide on Manage Overdue Payments and Debt Recovery, there are seven (7) steps for businesses to use as a guide to recover an overdue payment.  These steps are in accordance with the Australian Consumer Law.

You assessor will confirm your interpretation of these compliance requirements in your assessment submission feedback.


Question 2

List five (5) debt collection practices that are banned under the Australian Consumer Law.


Question 3

Sometimes, a court decision may be ‘persuasive’ for courts of other states and territories, even if they do not have binding authority.

Review the case Megalift v Terminals [2009] NSWSC324 where a decision was made by the Supreme Court of New South Wales. The decision made may have persuasive authority for courts of another jurisdiction, therefore it can be useful to look into the details.

(350-400 words)

Your letter must be professional and grammatically correct. (400- 500 words)


TASK 3: Email Client

Email subject: Client email
  Hi there,   Thank you for providing such clear and sound advice to Larry.  He has followed all the steps highlighted in your letter but unfortunately still has not recovered any of the $33,000 debt from Molly’s Motel Pty Ltd.   Larry now wishes to take legal action based on the Victorian Court System.  Please draft an email to Larry to advise what action Larry’s Landscapes needs to take to commence proceedings with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).
