6. THE DEBT COLLECTION PROCESS IN SWITZERLAND

6.1 The debt collection process in Switzerland can be divided into two stages. Selection takes place during the extrajudicial process, without the intervention of the Court. They do include the Court during the legal process in order to make the Swiss debtor bill.

6.2 Because we are a debt collection firm, we are able to assist you in both processes. Many cases are decided in Switzerland during the extrajudicial process, with no interference by the Court.


7. EXTRAJUDICIAL DEBT COLLECTION

7.1 In theory we usually continue with the extrajudicial step of the debt collection method. We are trying to prevent Court interference at this point, as this can be expensive. We must call your debtor in Switzerland to seek payment.

7.2 For specific cases, we'll also engage with your Swiss 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. The declaration of legal proceedings also persuades the client to pay.

EUROPEAN ORDER FOR PAYMENT PROCEEDINGS

In the case of an uncontested dispute between two parties located in EU Member States (except Denmark)

European order for payment proceedings may be initiated.

In your situation, the prosecutor who manages the case will decide whether this kind of action is acceptable.

The creditor usually fills out a standard form for EU Order for Payment procedures and submits this to the Tribunal.

Instead, the Court issues a Local Transaction Notice. The debtor then has 30 days to decide whether they object to the charge. 

If no notice is obtained within the 30-day span, you can require the Court to finalize the payment order (called a "declaration of enforceability"). This decision is true and enforceable and is recognized in any Member State (except Denmark). 

The EU Payment Order is never appropriate for contested issues (so not in situations where there is a disagreement over the invoice).

The benefit of this process is flexibility and low cost (some Member States don't even impose a court fee), but the drawback is that if it gets challenged, the case stops, and if the claimant wants to continue, a regular civil action will have to be launched.
