Debt collection Belgium

‘Invorderingsbedrijf is your partner for claims throughout Belgium’

Do you have to deal with Belgian defaulters? With Belgian debtors who are not complying with their agreements? For fixing such issues, you have come to the right place at Invorderingsbedrijf. With our very own Debt collection Belgium service; business in Belgium is becoming more ‘pleasurable’. Read how debt collection Belgium works and how we are able to help you down below.

Local specialists for Debt Collection Belgium

Doing successful business in Belgium is not as easy as it seems to be. Not only does the legislation in Belgium differentiate from the Dutch approach, also cultural differences are playing a bigger part than is often thought. If you are unexpectedly facing a Belgian defaulter, a thorough Debt Collection Belgium approach is of the utmost importance. Invorderingsbedrijf understands your situation like no other debt collection company. For over 20 years we have dealt with foreign defaulters in an effective and respectful way. With our local debt collection specialists (who operate in numerous countries within and outside the EU), we make our special approach possible. They are up-to-date when it comes to local guidelines and they are able to choose a strategic approach to confront your debtor on their own territory (in their own language). In short, Invorderingsbedrijf is Goal-oriented and groundbreaking.

Extrajudicial collection in Belgium

The payment moral in Belgium is very poor. Hundreds of thousands of claims remain unpaid each year. Debt collection is therefore not a luxury in Belgium. After entering your claim in our system, we immediately start an intensive out-of-court collection procedure. This ensures that your debtor is informed of the claim in several manners. A benevolent debtor will start paying immediately. Does payment not follow? In that case we can, in full consultation with you, choose to continue the entire process.

In the extrajudicial debt collection process, which follows up on the friendly process, you will be able to follow the file closely via your own account in our Online Cockpit. Every client receives their very own credentials for this portal.

Judicial collection in Belgium

Legal Collection Belgium usually has two routes to choose from. We will advise you on the best option for your case on the basis of the file we receive. The first route is also known as the summons procedure.

A. Collecting by summoning

One of the Belgian debt collection lawyers composes a summons. This is the legal petition that is subsequently served on your debtor by the Belgian bailiff, in accordance with Belgian law. After this bailiff has left the summons with your debtor, it is brought to the court’s role. Thereafter the judge will deal with this case as soon as possible. Your debtor can respond to the summons in court. When your debtor responses, the debtor will automatically receive a notice thereof. If your debtor does not respond, he or she will be sentenced ‘ in absentia’. There will be a verdict in which the bailiff (if the debtor still does not want to pay) can take immediate action. In addition to the route of summons, Belgium can also be chosen for the judicial collection of a European Payment Order (EBB).

B. Collecting by means of the European Payment Order (EBB)

The European order for payment procedure (Regulation (EC) No 1896/2006, which entered into force on 12 December 2008) allows the recovery of cross-border, non-disputed civil and commercial claims. This is done through a uniform procedure on the basis of forms. For this procedure, the parties do not need the Court to appear. The regulation applies between all EU countries, with the exception of Denmark. It must be checked for each file whether it is possible to follow this route. Formally, every Belgian court should deal with these procedures. In practice, unfortunately, and especially in Wallonia, it appears that courts often leave the petitions because they do not know what to do with them in a procedural manner.

With the advice of one of our debt collection specialists in Belgium you can make an informed choice for yourself and you will not be standing in front of any unpleasant surprises.

Seizure in Belgium

In Belgium there are locally competent bailiffs (in Wallonia they are called ‘ huissiers de justice ‘) they the people who execute the attachment. Each bailiff is affiliated to the National Chamber of Bailiffs in Brussels, which monitors the quality of all bailiffs in Belgium. In Belgium, seizure is possible for movable property (such as household effects and vehicles), immovable property (such as office buildings, factory buildings and houses) and for wages or benefits. The Belgian bailiff is also charged with clearing premises. In Belgium this is called ‘judicial expulsion’.

Bailiffs’ tariffs in Belgium are largely determined by the Belgian state. They are changed annually.

What do you need for your Belgian debt collection?

We have never seen a perfect dossier from our clients. This is not necessary nor explicitly wanted. Together with you, we examine which documents and / or evidence is available in your case. If you start with debt collection Belgium, it is convenient for you to send us the documents as set out below:

  1. Copy of the agreements, for example an agreement, an e-mail message, a fax confirmation or simply your summary of what has been agreed.
  2. Copy of your invoices
  3. Copy of your reminders
  4. A copy of your terms and conditions
  5. Any proof of delivery

Laying conservatory third-party seizures in Belgium

Conservatoire adjudication means that there has already been seized property before there has been a final verdict of a judge. In doing so, you are actually putting the capital of the debtor in the right place. In Belgium, for example, this can be done on the basis of a notarial deed or undisputed invoice that your debtor has sent to his customer and where that customer still has to pay your debtor. You file a claim against that customer who then is no longer allowed to pay to your debtor. The unique thing is that the debtor only sees the attachment when it has been laid down. It must be a certain and highly fixed claim. There must also be a high urgency to it.

Start with debt collection Belgium

In the first phase, our Belgian debt collection specialists will intensively ask your debtor to pay for the claim. This might give you a strange outlook, but in most cases this approach leads to payment or a payment arrangement. If your debtor throws his back against the wall and is still not willing to pay, our Belgian debt collection specialists and lawyers will ask your debtor to appear in court. If your debtor still refuses to pay, our debt collection specialists will confiscate your debtor. The result? You finally get the money that you were entitled to all along.

Limitation of claims in Belgium
Prescription means (according to Belgian law) that a claim is no longer legally enforceable, it becomes a so-called ‘ natural obligation’. Even old claims can still be collected in Belgium, because the debtor has to appeal to prescription. Many debtors do not, according to the practice. In commercial matters, the limitation period starts with walking at the end of the delivery of goods or services or on the due date of the invoice. In addition, there are statutory limitation periods for commercial claims in Belgium, namely 10 years for contractual obligations and 5 years for non-contractual obligations (eg damage to third parties). There is also a specific number of prescription periods applicable:

  • Claim for medical treatment: 2 years
  • Credit granted to a consumer by a financial institution: 10 years
  • Interest on due debts: 5 years
  • Costs of a lawyer or expert: 5 years
  • Mobile telephony: 5 years
  • Public utilities: 5 years
  • Schools, with the exception of boarding schools: 5 years (boarding schools 1 year)
  • Insurance contract: 5 years
  • Delivery to a consumer, with the exception of food: 1 year
  • Indexation of a rent in a lease: 1 year
  • Restaurants, hotels: 1 year
  • In Belgium, the limitation period (in contrast to the Netherlands) is not interrupted by a so-called bouncing letter from the creditor himself. In Belgium, the limitation period is interrupted by the start of legal proceedings, an attachment or a letter from a debt collection lawyer.Ordinary registered letter by the client himself did not run into prescription.
