However, if we do manage to collect the debt, a commission fee will be charged, which often can be included in the settlement amount from the debtor.

At the onset of each new case for debt collection in Belgium, we conduct extensive research on your debtor, delving into their financial history. This crucial step helps us understand the reasons behind the unpaid invoice. Our research includes examining international credit reports and accessing local databases, such as the National Bank of Belgium’s Central Individual Credit Register. This in-depth analysis enables us to craft a strategy uniquely suited to your debtor’s specific situation.


Efficient Strategy

Our methodology for debt collection in Belgium is comprehensive, client-centric, and supported by legal expertise. We move forward with collection efforts only when there’s a realistic chance of success, ensuring efficient use of resources and adherence to the highest service standards in addressing your debt collection needs.


Start Case

Our debt recovery process in Belgium is prompt and effective. Within 24 hours of a new case, we assign a caseworker to draft and send a tailored initial demand letter. This letter details the debt amount, original due date, any late payment fees, and a new payment deadline, along with potential legal repercussions for non-payment, ensuring a clear, firm start to the recovery process.


Amicable Collection

Our objective is to resolve most cases amicably, saving time and resources by avoiding legal proceedings. In Belgium, for undisputed debts, we strive to secure a settlement agreement or a payment plan with the debtor. This approach involves negotiating directly with the debtor to agree on the amount owed and the terms of payment. If the debtor agrees to the terms, this agreement can often be formalized, creating a binding commitment to pay the debt.


Legal Collection

In Belgium, if amicable debt collection fails, we can pursue legal action under the Belgian Judicial Code. This process typically starts with a summons (Dagvaarding/Assignation) and, for undisputed debts, may involve an Order for Payment Procedure (Betalingsbevel/Injonction de Payer). We also utilize Reconciliation Procedures (Verzoeningsprocedure/Procédure de conciliation) for mediation and Summary Proceedings (Kort geding/Référé) for urgent matters. Each step is tailored to the specifics of the case, ensuring effective legal resolution within Belgium’s legal framework.



When we successfully recover your funds in Belgium, our debt collection agency will issue an invoice for our commission fee. Generally, this fee is charged to the debtor. However, if we are unable to recover the debt, you will not be subject to any charges.
