Insolvency has also become increasingly widespread internationally, greatly reducing the chances of credit collection abroad without a strategy with proven efficacy. A phenomenon that has serious repercussions in the financial area with an increase in administrative costs and the need for significant recourse to bank loans.
An exporting company – in addition to the solvency risk of its customers – should also consider the country risk, expressed in terms of the ability of each country to structure a judicial system capable of enforcing the law in case that the transaction is not concluded with payment within the agreed terms.
In recent decades, the use of tools such as ADR – Alternative Dispute Resolution – is experiencing a period of significant use, compared to the classic recourse to the courts, due to its speed, effectiveness and lower costs.
For companies, ADR can be a tool for maintaining the commercial reputation and confidence of customers, in addition to offering the advantage of a targeted approach to international credit collection tailored to individual disputes. Internationally, it should be noted that this system needs to be managed by specialised lawyers able to offer direct monitoring of the dispute.
Moreover, in recent years, to deal with the increase in late payments in commercial transactions in Europe, the European order for payment procedure has been established in order to allow a simplified procedure for the collection of uncontested credit abroad, in the event of cross-border disputes of a civil and commercial nature.
