Exceptional cases (< 10% partial collection)
In more than 90% of cases we collect the outstanding amount in full (including collection costs). Sometimes it can occur that we only manage to collect a part of the amount, for example because of a dispute or for financial reasons. We then calculate the following reimbursement according to the following scale *:
|First € 2.500,00||15% ( with a min. € 40,00)|
|After the first € 2.500,00||10%|
|After the next € 5.000,00||5%|
|After the next € 190.000,00||1%|
|Everything above € 200.000,00||0,5% (max. € 6.775,00)|
The higher the outstanding amount, the lower the percentage of commission.

Our income is excl. VAT. The VAT on the collection costs will be charged to you as the client according to the law. Are you not liable for VAT? Then we will charge VAT to the debtor. Of course, you can reclaim the VAT charged with the tax authorities.
Cost of additional collection services
House visit, credit check, legal proceedings or final reminder
A house visit, credit check, legal proceedings or final notice involve certain costs for the hours that have to be made and, according to legislation, can not be charged to the debtor.

Sometimes we ask for an advance on costs that can often be recovered from your debtor afterwards following a positive verdict by the judge
The costs for sending a final reminder amount to € 10 excl. VAT.* We do not charge any extra costs for sending a Registered Email ™.
* Of course, other price agreements are possible, depending on the amount.
House visit - Credit check
For a house visit or a credit check, the costs average between 48-80 euros for assessing the debtor's situation. For a credit check, the costs also depend on how quickly you want to obtain the information. We give you an estimate beforehand.
Judicial collection procedure
In the unlikely event that the collection process does not result in payment, you can choose to initiate legal proceedings. Firstly, the procedure always a includes a thorough cost-benefit analysis, because a procedure like this does entail costs. For example:
- The court registry (a legally obliged contribution for the costs of the judicial proceedings)
- Potential costs of appearing before a judge for a hearing
- Any costs in the execution process (these are costs that the bailiff incurs if the debtor still doesn't pay following the judge's verdict)
Who pays for the costs of the judicial debt collection procedure?
In principle, each party must pay, or advance, its own litigation costs during a legal dispute. It is up to the judge to decide who ultimately bears the costs. The main rule is that the losing party must pay the costs (i.e. their own costs and those of the other party). Keep in mind, however, that if, after a positive verdict has been given, a debtor ultimately doesn't verhaal bieden/pay the amount, the costs actually incurred will remain for you as claimant.
