What is the debt collection process in Montenegro? 

The debt collection process begins by filing a claim with the public enforcement office. If the public enforcement office decides positively on our request, he makes a decision on debt collection that is sent to the creditor and the debtor. The debtor has the right to appeal against the said decision to the court. In deciding upon appeal, the court may refuse the appeal, accept appeal, or refer the case to litigation. 

Average length of time to collect a debt? 

The average length of B2B debt collection depends on whether an appeal has been filed against the decision of the public enforcement office and how the court will decide on the appeal. If no appeal is filed, the procedure ends in 10-15 days (of course, if the debtor has funds in his account). If the court refers the case to litigation, the proceedings takes about 12-16 months. 

Can late payment fees / interest to be added to claims? 

Yes, fees can be added for Montenegro debt collection cases according to local law. 

Details on legal service / process in Montenegro? 

The enforcement process is quite effective, but of course a lot of it depends on the document on the basis of which we initiate debt. Specifically, it is important to prove that the debtor has been informed of the existence of the debt, that the document which forms the basis for the payment shows the date of issue and the due date. If it is a debt collection due to the delivery of goods, it is advisable that we also have proof that the goods have been delivered. 
As far as more details are concerned, in each particular case we would let you know what our estimate is for success and whether it is necessary to complete the documentation in some way.
