What is the debt collection process in Serbia? 

Initial communication to assess the debtor’s willingness and ability to repay the debt 
(If you have all necessary documentation accompanying your business transactions, the whole process could be easier and relatively quick) 
Warning letter to debtor (That in a significant number of cases this proves sufficient) 
Submission of debt in Creditreform Group’s unique database. This database allows our clients to screen their prospect and existing clients and suppliers in order to ensure they have as much information as possible in order to make informed decisions. 
Alert database members, which are related to the debtor, about the negative incident. Through this process we create leverage by adding pressure to the debtor to repay the debt as it affects their creditworthiness, credit scoring and general profile as well as their related entities. It also helps in the prevention of bad debts. 
Court procedure or litigation more precisely, is what follows. 
When litigation reaches its end with favorable verdict, the majority of debtors would simply comply with it and repay their debt. Yet, some, which leads us to the third part or enforcement proceedings. Here, an enforcement officer will try to collect everything, from money on bank accounts to real estates or other valuables, that debtor hasn’t been willing to hand over in the first place. And that usually concludes the whole creditor-debtor situation. Especially worth noting would be also the fact that in the majority of cases where a creditor-debtor position is occupied by companies, there is a possibility of skipping second step (litigation) and going straight to the third and last one (enforcement proceeding).
