The Amicable Debt Collection Phase in Sweden
What happens when an invoice against a Swedish debtor is due? The creditor can, either by himself or by using professional assistance, take debt collection actions against the debtor. Demand letters are sent to the debtor with the threat that failure to pay may result in legal action. Debt collection agencies must have permits (From Datainspektionen) to act on behalf of a client in Sweden.
Taking legal actions against a swedish debtor.
If the debtor does not pay, the Creditor must decide whether to proceed with legal action or not. In this assessment, he should take the debtor’s credit rating into account. In Sweden, creditors can use a simplified procedure for uncontested claims. The procedure is called “betalningsföreläggande/Payment Order”. Kronofogdemyndigheten (The Swedish Enforcement Authority) is responsible for applications and they handle cases instead of the court. If the debtor contests the claim, the creditor must proceed with the case in ordinary court proceedings.
Enforce a verdict in Sweden.
Should the debtor still not pay, an application for enforcement must be made to the Swedish Enforcement Authorities. The debtor has a set time limit to pay. If they do not – The Enforcement Authorities examines if the debtor has any assets. If they do, they will take it into possession.
