About the process in Denmark

“Soft” Debt Collection in Denmark

When the invoice against a Danish company is due, the first step is to send a formal reminder letter to the debtor. Minimum 10 days need to be set as new payment deadline before further actions can be taken. The reminder letter is usually a prerequisite that has to be sent to the debtor before sending the case to a debt collection agency.

When the time limit for the reminder letter has expired, the debt collection process can begin. Debt Collection Agencies in Denmark need permission from the Danish authorities to carry out their business.

Collection demands are issued and the debtor is informed that the next step in the process is to proceed with legal action.

Judicial Debt Recovery in Denmark

The Danish summary process (A simplified legal process for “uncontested” claims) applies to cases up to DKK 100,000, excluding interest expenses and costs.

If the claim amount exceeds DKK 100.000, creditors may use the ordinary civil court proceedings to obtain a judgment establishing the debtor’s payment liability.

Hopefully, the debtor will pay voluntarily after a judgment has been issued in the case.

Should this not happen, the creditor must act further and apply for enforcement to “Fogedretten”. As the basis for enforcement, a court-judgment or a “betalingspåkrav” from the Danish summary process is required.
