I'm owed £862 by an agency (one person, whose client is a famous magazine who doesn't pay him on time I am told, but this is not my problem), anyway I did the work in september 2004 and I want this money, is it better to go to the small claim court or to ask a collection agency to do the job, how much %would the latter ask for ? Any recommendations ?

You should also be asking whether you should be consulting or instructing a Solicitor and/or trying to issue a cheap statutory demand that small-claim websites do not adequately deal with.

Your claim is above the GBP 750 'bankruptcy level' enabling you to issue one - or have a Solicitor do, if at all interested in a claim of less than GBP 5,000 - as a preliminary shock-tactic prior to winding up the co. (if it is one) yourself as a petitioning creditor. However, if the statutory demand is opposed and backfires, there is a costs penalty.

See my answer - predominantly in Eng. - to the German Money Matters question this week of Englische Agentur zahlt nicht - an Eng. agency isn't paying up.
