International Debt Collection

Recover late payments anywhere in the world

Maximise your chances of getting paid with a professional service that gets to work fast

Coface International Debt Collection specialises in effective and efficient, stress-free debt recovery.

Failure to collect on debts and late payments can significantly influence your cash flow and bottom line. 25% of bankruptcies are due to unpaid debts, and a single large debtor can severely limit your business dealings and even threaten the livelihood of your company. 

We provide a single point of contact, regardless of the debtor country. Limiting your losses, minimising disruption to your business and providing access to local legal teams. 

We understand that speed is essential in recovering debt, which is why we make sure first contact with the debtor is made within 24 hours of checking your files. Contact can be followed up with physical visits, negotiations, and legal court proceedings where necessary and possible.

Recover late payments anywhere in the world.

Global business can maximise advantages like new markets, opportunities, and greater growth potential. But international developments also means more risk. Especially if you are trying to recover money from debtors in different countries with different cultures, laws, and currencies. Around 25% of invoices in Europe are paid late, or not at all. 70% of companies in Asia Pacific reported late payments. These late or defaulted debts pose a significant threat to international businesses, especially if you don’t have a physical presence in the country where the debt is present.

Many businesses will spend a lot of time, energy and money trying to recover your overdue invoices. This is all time taken away from maximising your company’s focus on growth.
