Colombia Debt Collection – No Win No Fee
Creditreform operates a global specialist International debt collections service. We have local offices and fully approved expert international debt collection agency partners in every country worldwide. All our International debt collection agency partners and offices operate on a No Win No Fee basis charging an agreed commission against monies recovered only. All our international offices and partners initiate the collection processes by sending the debtors a debt collection letter to introduce their involvement.
Due to the weak economic situation in Colombia debtor days are ever increasing and companies and businesses are taking longer to pay their debts and bills. The legal system is very slow and expensive and pre court and out of court settlements should always be attempted first. It can years to reach a conclusions through the courts. However, in a successful action all costs and interest are normally recoverable
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods have increased on recent years and are the preferred method once the pre court Colombia debt collection processes have failed. The settlement agreements achieved through this process are binding and legally enforceable.
Main reasons why a local country debt recovery agency is so important rather than trying to recover from a debt collection agency UK are as follows:
The local International Debt collection Partners know:
The local cultures
The best methods of initiating debt recovery letters and processes
Are in the same time zones
