6.1. You should split the debt collection process in Albania into two stages. Selection takes place during the extrajudicial process, without the intervention of the Court. We do include the Court during the legal process in order to make your Albanian debtor pay. Because we are a law firm, we are able to assist you in both processes. Many debt recovery problems in Albania are settled during the extrajudicial process, with no interference by the Court.
7.1. In theory we often continue with the extrajudicial step of the debt collection method. We are trying to prevent Court interference at this point, as this can be costly. We'll call your debtor in Albania to seek payment.
7.2. In specific cases, we'll also engage with your Albanian debtor in a face-to-face chat. If the debtor fails to pay within a specified period of time we will launch legal proceedings on your order. In Albania, reporting legal proceedings also persuades the customer to pay.
8.1. If your Albanian debtor refuses to pay during the extrajudicial process, we can go to Court in Albania after negotiation with you.
We will always give you preliminary details about the likelihood of success in your debt recovery case.
We will also remind you of the potential costs in advance, and will only continue with your permission.
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
- Contact your customer and demand why no payment has been and when exactly it will be.
Always request the payment copy sent to you.
- Are you not able to solve the problem with your customer? Send them a certified letter requesting immediate payment.
- Be conscious that with ambiguous payment terms or arguments, your Albania debtor may try to gain additional time.
Persevere, be direct and don't wait too long.
- In Albania, a payment period of three to seven days is normal
