ENTRUST YOUR OUTSTANDING RECEIVABLES IN HOLLAND TO INVENIUM
It is customary in the Netherlands to attempt out-of-court credit collection.
Dutch debtors normally have the habit of paying invoices after having received several reminders and notices in the belief that the creditor, especially if foreign, will desist from taking legal action. In the Netherlands, the bankruptcy application constitutes the most effective credit collection tool, since it is characterised by extreme rapidity of action and by limited costs.
The procedure can be initiated in the presence of at least one due debt and of one payment request (Art 6 F.L.)
In Holland, there are many cases where the debtor fulfils its payment obligations after the receipt of the bankruptcy application notice.
The start of bankruptcy proceedings, moreover, avoids the initiation of expensive cognisance proceedings and also the costs of bankruptcy proceedings are significantly lower than those of legal proceedings.
In the Netherlands, the debtor is also required to pay the costs incurred for out-of-court collection of the receivable.
