What is Debt Collection Consultancy?

In commercial life, receivables are subject to exchange notes (check notes, policies) or invoices from selling products and services. Due to the nature of relationships between individuals or legal entities, debts may sometimes not be collected in commercial life. The collection of these receivables may be the subject of litigation or enforcement proceedings.

The collection of these receivables, subject to legal remedies, may be extended due to reasons arising from the debtor or aggravating the follow-up process. For this reason, the receivables subject to follow-up must be evaluated within the scope of the debt collection consultancy. So, what is debt collection? How does debt collection work?

What is Debt Collection?

Debt collection is a comprehensive concept that includes negotiation, mediation, litigation, and enforced enforcement processes and procedures. Collecting receivables is possible by negotiation and reconciliation before resorting to legal remedies.

The collection of receivables that the debtor cannot collect in this way is only possible through legal means, enforcement offices, execution proceedings initiated by the creditor, or a lawyer/attorney assigned by proxy.

How Does Debt Collection Work?

A warning can be sent to the debtor by the creditor in the receivable collection, primarily to put the debtor in default. Enforcement proceedings are initiated if the debtor does not make the payment within the period given after the warning. Before applying for legal remedies for the collection of the receivable;

  • In addition to the information given by the creditor about the debt and the debtor, research is made from open sources.
  • If it is impossible to collect it from the debtor by negotiation, it is collected through enforcement proceedings.
  • The debtor is notified via PTT or Registered Electronic Mail (KEP) if the enforcement proceedings are initiated.
  • In case of objection to the enforcement proceedings, the objection made with the action for the annulment of the objection or the action for removing the objection is canceled/removed, and the enforcement proceedings are finalized.
  • If the debtor does not make payment upon the finalized enforcement proceedings, the foreclosure and sale of movable and immovable assets begin.
  • If the debtor has collusive transfers, the cancellation of these transfers is requested.
