We have years of experience with all kinds of debt collection. We strive for maximum efficiency and great results. Following up on claims from start to finish is imperative in debt collection, which is something our entire business revolves around.
A commission is only payable when recovery is successful.
This is a tough question to answer, as we always consider all claims. In general we will not initiate files with a principal amount $250.
We maintain all kinds of debt.
Our non-legal collection flow takes approximately 1,5 - 3 months. While our general flow is standardized we often add more steps if it makes sense in any specific claim.
As we are legally obligated to follow certain guidelines, the first few steps are always the same.
1st step = Collection Notice. The debtor is informed by land mail that they have 10 days to pay the full amount, or the claim will be taken to collection with added costs. 2nd step = Collection Letter. The debtor is informed by land mail that the claim is now in collection with specification of the added costs. Another deadline of 10 days is given to pay up the full amount, including collection costs. If the debtor still doesn’t pay, we will then be able to proceed with legal action. 3rd, 4th and 5th Step = Phone Calls. Three phone calls are made to any number we have on the debtor, either linked to their address or person. If the debtor does not pick up, or are unreachable, a letter is sent strongly urging the debtor to solve the case amicably. Step 6 = Legal Notification. If debtor has not paid by now our last letter is sent. The letter states that we have no other option but to recommend legal action to our client, which will impose additional legal fees to be covered by the debtor.
As for regular invoice claims without a binding signature the statute of limitation is 3 years. As for promissory notes, signed contracts, overdrafts and judgements, the statute of limitation is 10 years.
This is usually not a service that we offer. We have attempted this before and history shows this is not a very effective way of collecting claims against Danish citizens. Sometimes the result is very good, but most often it is simply a waste of time. In very special events it is a possibility, but that depends entirely on where the debtor is located.
YES! All claims must be fully documented at the time of forwarding.
Yes. We offer full legal assistance in both regular and disputed claims.
Collection costs are imposed upon debtors regardless of consumer or commercial debt. Same goes for legal action. Almost all costs can be imposed upon the debtor (disputed claims excluded).
