Dealing with Late Payments in Chemical Exports to the Netherlands

Late payments can be a common challenge faced by companies involved in chemical exports to the Netherlands. In order to address this issue effectively, a Recovery System for Late Payments has been established, consisting of three key phases: Initial Recovery Phase, Legal Action Phase, and Recommendations and Costs. Let’s explore the key takeaways from this system:

Key Takeaways

  • Thorough investigation is crucial before determining the likelihood of recovery
  • Options include closure of the case or proceeding with litigation
  • Legal action may require upfront payment of legal costs
  • Competitive collection rates are tailored based on the number and age of claims submitted
  • Continuous communication and follow-up are essential in the recovery process

Recovery System for Late Payments

Initial Recovery Phase

We initiate the recovery process swiftly, within 24 hours of account placement. Our first action is to dispatch a series of letters to the debtor, ensuring they are aware of the outstanding debt. We employ comprehensive skip-tracing to gather the most accurate financial and contact information available. Our team engages in persistent communication efforts, including phone calls, emails, and texts, aiming for a resolution within the first 30 to 60 days.

Should these attempts not yield the desired outcome, we escalate to Phase Two. This involves forwarding the case to an affiliated attorney within the debtor’s jurisdiction, who will exert additional pressure through legal letterheads and persistent calls. It’s a complex process, but our goal remains clear: recover your funds efficiently.

We’re committed to daily attempts to contact debtors, pushing for a swift and favorable resolution.

Our structured approach is outlined below:

  • Initial contact via US Mail
  • Skip-tracing and investigation
  • Daily communication attempts
  • Escalation after 30 to 60 days of non-resolution

Legal Action Phase

After exhausting the initial recovery and legal action phases, we face a critical juncture. We must decide whether to close the case or proceed with litigation. If the likelihood of recovery is low, we recommend closure, sparing you further costs. Conversely, choosing litigation means facing upfront legal fees, typically between $600 to $700. These cover court costs and filing fees, with our affiliated attorney initiating the lawsuit on your behalf.

Costs are an inevitable aspect of the recovery process. Our rates are competitive and vary depending on the age and number of claims. For instance, accounts under a year old are charged at 30% of the amount collected for up to nine claims, and 27% for ten or more. Older accounts or those under $1000 incur higher rates. Should litigation fail, rest assured, you owe us nothing further.

Here’s a quick breakdown of our fee structure:

Number of Claims Accounts < 1 Year Accounts > 1 Year Accounts < $1000 Attorney Placed Accounts
1-9 30% 40% 50% 50%
10+ 27% 35% 40% 50%

We navigate the complexities of payment challenges in the chemical export sector, ensuring that our clients are equipped with the knowledge to make informed decisions. Our expertise extends to the Dutch market, where we understand the nuances of dealing with late payments.

Recommendations and Costs

When facing the dilemma of unpaid bills in chemical exports, we must weigh our options carefully. If the likelihood of recovery is low, we recommend closing the case, sparing you unnecessary expenses. Conversely, if litigation seems viable, you’re at a crossroads. Opting out means no further costs, while proceeding requires covering upfront legal fees, typically between $600 to $700.

Our rates are competitive, with a sliding scale based on claim age and volume. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Claims Submitted Under 1 Year Over 1 Year Under $1000 With Attorney
1-9 30% 40% 50% 50%
10+ 27% 35% 40% 50%

We stand by our commitment to provide tailored solutions, ensuring you’re not left adrift in the complex currents of the Dutch export market.

In conclusion, our three-phase Recovery System is designed to navigate the challenges of recovery in a structured manner. Whether it’s the initial outreach or the final legal push, we’re here to guide you through each step, mindful of the costs and potential outcomes.
