Client Software

The North Carolina Debt Setoff Clearinghouse is proud to offer FREE software to assist in the collection of delinquent debts to local governments. The software includes free, unlimited support. While the software is optional, it should be considered as a beneficial method to ensure that debts are submitted in the correct manner as opposed to the alternates, ASCII and Excel, which has a higher potential for debts being rejected.  Many local governments don't have an Information Technology staff or third-party vendor to create a debt setoff submission file.  This software makes it easy for any one to enter debtors and debts to the Clearinghouse.
