What are the chances that my Chinese debt will be recovered?

Historically, we have achieved a success rate of around 75% in our cases in China.

Numerous factors can influence the complexity of a successful case.

For instance, the financial capacity of the Chinese debtor, if the debtor is unclear about their payment obligations, and so forth. The age of the claim also plays a significant role. The sooner a case is escalated to debt collection, the higher the chances of a successful outcome.

How long does the debt collection process in China usually take?

It’s challenging to give a general timeline, as every case is unique. At times, a debtor might have simply forgotten to pay, making the process quick. In other instances, more persuasion and pressure are required, and the process becomes lengthier. However, rest assured that we exert every effort to expedite the case. As our payment is contingent upon successful recovery, it’s in everyone’s interest to resolve the entire claim as rapidly as possible.

What kind of documentation does Oddcoll need to start the debt collection process in China?

The key document we need is the unpaid Chinese invoice that has been issued. If there are any other relevant documents, such as a signed contract or proof of delivery, they can also be uploaded. If more documentation is required, our debt collection specialist will request it during the relevant stage of the process. Also, providing contact details of the debtor and a description of any prior communication you may have had with them would be beneficial. This information will allow us to approach the debtor in the most effective manner possible.

The Chinese debt collection process

Amicable recovery of debts in China.

The debt collection process in China starts with a debt collector trying to get paid for a debt out of court. That is, without having to take any legal action or start any legal proceedings. This is always the most advantageous as court proceedings can be expensive, take a long time, and the outcome is not always certain.

What a debt collection agency does is to assess the financial situation of the debtor. Based on this, recovery measures such as the sending of collection orders and demand letters are carried out. Contact is also made by calling debtors, contacting them electronically and sometimes even physically visiting debtors.

Our Chinese debt collection agency is highly effective at this stage of the debt collection process because of its experience in negotiating and putting pressure on the debtor.


To proceed legally in China with a debt collection case.

In the event of non-payment, it may be necessary in some cases to take your case for debt collection in China to court to start legal procedures. Of course, at this stage you need the help of Chinese debt collectors as a foreign creditor is not familiar with foreign laws.

In China there is a tradition of trying to resolve commercial disputes out of court. This is also reflected in the court process where parties are encouraged early in the civil process to resolve the dispute through mediation by a mediator appointed by the court.

The court system in China is structured as follows:

• Local people’s courts
• Courts of Special Jurisdiction
• Supreme People’s Court (SPC)

The Supreme Court is primarily responsible for interpreting laws and setting legal precedents. Special courts are courts set up to hear cases in a particular field (e.g. special courts for intellectual property, internet courts, financial courts and maritime courts). But it is mainly in local courts that civil cases are heard.

The local courts are in turn divided according to:

– high people’s courts
– intermediate people’s courts
– primary people’s courts

Local courts hear cases in a given geographical area that are not of such a legal nature that they should be heard by a specialised court.

Judicial collection cases are heard, in the first instance, by courts at different of these levels. This is determined by the type of case and the size of the claim.
