Could you shortly describe your company?

VP Consulting is a small custom made Belgian debt recovery agency that collects consumer and commercial claims for all types of services and industries. We are a proud member of the Belgian Collectors Association. So we are following Their code of conduct. To become member, a debt recovery agency has to:

– Be incorporated, subject to a legal obligation to publish its annual accounts and to be registered in the Central Company Databank. It must have a company identification number and be listed with the Federal Public Service for Economy as being a debt collector.

– Have carried on debt collection activities for at least 3 years.

What kind of service could the creditor expect when you´re handling their case?

We treat your files the way you want :Custom made >>> We propose a bespoke service including continued updates on your collection claims. When we have no result we work together with a lawyer company.

What challenges do you have when collecting in Belgium?

The Belgian law stipulates that B2C (consumers) claims have a special treatment. We need to wait 15 days before starting a new action. So if we send a reminder to the debtor and we have no result we have to wait minimum 15 days before to start a legal action. For B2B (business) we don’t have to wait 15 days. So no obligations to apply a minimum period.

If you are taking legal actions in a case and you win in court, can the costs for legal actions that the client has paid for be added to the debt?

When we start up a legal action in Belgium we always analyze the case together with the balief. If the debtor’s solvency is not OK we will usually suggest to to resolve the case amicably. This is to avoid high legal costs.
