If a ccj is not paid, what might the company owed the money do to get it paid?

Send in the bailiffs to seize goods to the value; get an attachment of earnings order so that the money is directly paid from the wages each month; get a charging order so the money is repaid when the house is sold.

The company has to apply to the courts for all of these.
There is a form you fill out for the bailiffs to go around- make sure the debtor is in a position to pay - most of mine - ex tenants arent


pay a bit more and send the Sherriffs around - then put on a cape - follow them with a camera and video the whole lot !
Try through the High Court for enforcement, if you win, then the Sherriff Officers will enforce the ccj for a fee of £60, as per ..
Oh you should demand payment before doing any of that
as it is cheaper....

That only works if the debtor has goods of value, in his own name.
If there's a CCJ, payment will have already been demanded several times.
Bailiff are not the answer to non-payment of a ccj, reaising the judgement to the High Court for enforcement, (for a fee), but the Enforcement Officer of the High Court has additional powers as to enter premises not available to Bailiffs. The Sherrif officer has a legal right to enter all commercial premises, wether the defendant agrees or not, as the Sheriff would have the right of a live writ to enter the premises.
If you use the form finder to the right of the page on this link, you can look up the EX321 which gives a number of enforcement options and links to other guidance and forms which you can also find from there.
The options open to the creditor are listed here:

If you're the debtor, you really, really, really want to avoid having your goods seized by bailiffs. For example, let's assume they seize a TV set that cost you £400. It's sold at auction, where nobody knows whether it's actually working properly or not, so it only fetches £60. The auctioneer claims 15% (£9) for his fee, leaving £51. But part of the bailiffs' fees (of perhaps £30) have to come out of that, meaning that losing a £400 telly only pays off £21 of your debt.
Strange how many debtors don't actually own anything, though :(
