Collection Complexity Ratings

How complex is collecting debt around the world? Euler Hermes’ Collection Complexity Ratings provide an overview of debt collection procedures in each of our 50 diverse countries – including seven new countries added in 2017. By providing you with the big picture, we aim to help support your business decisions and manage expectations when trading internationally.

 

Our international debt collection analysis is based on a detailed review of local regulations and procedures, providing you with an exclusive perspective from Euler Hermes’ market-based collection specialists on local payment cultures and legal practices. Countries are rated along a four-point scale: Severe, Very High, High, and Notable. Explore the interactive map below and click on a country to read its comprehensive Collection Profile.

In practice, how do these ratings affect you? Based on the expertise of our collection experts, our Country Collection Profiles drill down into the debt collection practices of each of these countries, explaining how to manage collection efforts best.

 

As the complexity of international debt collection depends on many factors, our profiles examine the elements that influence our Collection Complexity Ratings – payment-, court- and insolvency-related complexity – so you know what behaviours and factors will impact the collection of debts in each country, helping you stay ahead of the curve.
