What is the debt collection process in Greenland? 

When initiating a collection case, the first step is to send a debt recovery letter whereby the debtor is given the opportunity to pay the full amount due or to agree on a repayment arrangement. If the debtor fails to respond to the letter, the next step is filing a debt collection claim for the purpose of obtaining judgment. Once judgment is obtained, a notice of the ruling is sent to the debtor with a 14-day time limit to pay the claim. If the debtor does not respond to the notice, the next step is to initiate the enforcement proceedings, and it is a prerequisite for the proceedings in the enforcement court that the creditor has a foundation in the form of a judgment, enforceable instrument of debt etc. The purpose is to have the enforcement court enforce the claim by making disbursements in the debtor's cash or property. Disbursements in real estates can be used by the creditor to start sale by order of the court proceedings. 
If the debtor is unable to pay, and doesn’t own any properties of any worth, the options to enforce the claim are exhausted and the creditor may choose to close the case or to postpone the case for some time. If the creditor postpones the case, it can be brought before the enforcement court every 6 months, in which case the limitation period of 20 years starts over. 

Average length of time to collect a debt? 

The average time taken to recover a Greenland B2B debt collection case varies from case to case. 
The average length of processing time in court and enforcement court is 9-12 months in all, depending on the complexity of the case.

Upon recovery of claims, interest can be added pursuant to the Interest Act. Also collection and litigation costs as well as late payment fees can be added.
