Collecting in Japan

  • The payment culture in Japan is excellent with only a minority of invoices remaining unpaid thanks to strong cultural particularities. However, excessive DSO and significant payment disparities may be observed from one sector to another.

  • Although domestic courts tend to be fairly efficient in delivering timely decisions tribunals are time-consuming, expensive and complex. Therefore, conducting well-orchestrated pre-legal collection actions is essential.

  • Similarly, collecting debt from insolvent debtors is overall a challenging exercise and, even though insolvency proceedings could yield 'some' dividends, these would spread over years and generate significant costs.
