Collecting Debt from Foreign Countries
Collecting Debt from Foreign Countries
In 2018, the need for foreign debt collection is greater than ever before with the continued development of the European Business Community and ever-increasing importing and exporting.
There is a greater level of transparency across the globe in respect of validating a potential customer or client and this has made for even more purposeful global trade. Collecting Debt from foreign countries need not be a hardship with the right resources to do so.
This said, whilst the evolving world of business and measured advancements in technology have supported the trend of ever-growing global trade, there still remains the necessity for professional overseas debt collection for the non-payers, utilising local agents with a working knowledge of the local jurisdiction.
Quite often, if the debt has a relatively low value i.e. under 5k, it is sometimes written off by companies and put down to experience which really is not a good idea at all especially when there is the option of recourse for a realistic recovery of owed monies.
For larger debts, the legal route via a law firm can be a very costly and timely option. We spoke to an Italian Lawyer recently who usually requires a 30,000 euros upfront as a retainer to take on foreign clients wishing to utilise his services. Quite clearly this is not an option 80% of businesses in the UK but it just goes to highlight the potential of huge costs of trying to recover the overseas debt.
As with anything in life, the effectiveness of an International Debt Collection Agency is very much dependant on the quality of the company and their ethics, network and connections.
A simple example of such is, let us create a fictional name for instance such as Acme Collections. Now Acme Collections may claim to be able to offer a purported international debt collection service in order to supplement an image and to provide some form of credibility and kudos but can they actually offer such.
Do they have an assured network of fully vetted and professional foreign agents in every major state and country across the globe? Do they have bilingual speakers? Probably not is the likelihood!
So by placing your £10,000 debt in their hands, what will you realistically achieve. The answer is very little apart from maybe an exacerbated situation that will only serve to increase frustration and may well even lead to you writing off the debt.
This could easily be avoided with just the basic due diligence and proactive decision-making process. If something is worth doing, it is worth doing properly.
