The Debt Collection Agreement
Oddcoll is offering an electronic meeting place, where registered Users can enter a Fixed Debt Collection Agreement for European B2B claims. The recovery process includes recovery activities in the Amicable Stage (Out of court Debt Recovery), the judicial stage (Legal actions for uncontested claims) and services for Enforcement and Insolvency proceedings.
The service does not cover disputed claims which are to be settled in court or arbitration. A client and a Debt Collector can, of course, agree of such services in such cases.
The client and the Debt Collector create a Debt Collection Agreement between themselves and Oddcoll is not a party to that contract. Oddcoll is not a Debt Collection Agency. Oddcoll is not permitted, cannot, and has no obligation to conduct Debt Collection Services for Users of the Website.
The client chooses the country where the debtor is domiciled and is assigned to a Debt Collector in the selected country.
The client uploads details about the claim and accepts the terms for the Debt Collection Agreement on the platform. The Debt Collector then accepts the terms by sending the Client a confirmation that the collection process has started. The uploaded claim must be against a legal entity. The claim must be due, undisputed and must not be neither time-barred nor acquired.
The revenue model for the Debt Collectors are “No collection – No fee” This means that Client only pays for successful cases. The commission is 9,5% of the collected principal and interest amount. The agency is entitled to all statutory recovery costs paid by the debtor. The amount of the statutory recovery costs varies between countries. Expenses normally occur for actions taken in the judicial- and enforcement/insolvency proceeding stages. The client pays these costs but must approve the actions beforehand. The debtor can often be imposed these costs. Ask the Debt Collector what specifically applies in your case. Costs and fees are often written off first for payments received from Debtor.
