In the case of an uncontested dispute involving two parties located in EU Member States (except Denmark),
European Order for Payment proceedings may be launched.
The counsel who handles your cases will decide if this form of action is appropriate in your case.
The creditor typically fills out a specific form for European Order for Payment procedures and sends this to the Court.
Then the Court issues a European Transaction Order.
The debtor will then have 30 days to decide if they disagree to the request. If no reaction is received within the 30-day period, you can request the Court to finalize the payment injunction (called a "declaration of enforceability").
This decision is true and enforceable and is recognized in any Member State (except Denmark). The European Payment Order is never acceptable for contested matters (so not in situations where there is a disagreement over the invoice).
The benefit of this process is simplicity and low cost (some Member States don't even demand a filing fee), but the drawback is that if it gets challenged, the case stops, and if the claimant wishes to continue, an ordinary civil procedure will need to be launched
