The clear vision of Swier cs to claims

How does a good collection agency distinguish itself from others? By making sure a claim is met as soon as possible seems to be the most obvious answer.  To some extent that is the right answer. Yet, it isn’t what we at Swier cs think is the heart of our service. It definitely isn’t our starting point.
Good collection starts by preventing  the entire collection process. We do that by deeply studying you, our client. Who do you do business with? What do your contracts look like? Why isn’t your payment deadline being lived up to? How did you respond to that?
With the help of a good view of that process we have often helped reduce the overdue claims.
By, in consultation with you, keeping the debtors file up to date by timely admonishing them to payment and realizing payment in a by you desired payment term.
So our starting and our ending point is extremely clear. It’s you.

(Amicable) collection

The word collection stands for: “ The collecting of cash”.  That definition means a lot more than just calling upon a bailiff or collection agency.  A good collection policy begins before the payment problems arise, it begins from the moment you start doing business with a client.
If you want, Swier cs can guide you through your credit management from the beginning. It’s a custom process, adjusted to your specific situation.

For an effective collection Swier cs has the following products:

    • Credit management
      Swier cs fully takes over the process of billing and reminders, under your brand name, and keeps a close eye on the payment term. This way, you can focus on your core business.

    • Pre collection
      Your debtor is alerted to an outstanding invoice by a reminder under our brand name, without a file being made. This has the advantage that it’s obvious that you’re going to make work of the outstanding debt, but that the debtor can still contact and pay to you directly. That way, the relation between you and your client doesn’t get needlessly damaged.

    • Amicable collection process
      Despite all efforts an invoice is still unpaid. Swier cs then provides the amicable collection process. This includes all the acts to realize payment before the case is served by summons  to a judge. Because every client relationship is different we establish the amicable collection process in consultation with you. This process can exist out of the sending of reminders by mail, but it can also be done digitally, depending on your clientportfolio.

Legal collection

      • Proceedings before the court
        The summons is almost always the first part of the legal collection. Before the start of this process you need a bailiff to serve your debtor.
        Swier cs doesn’t only serve the debtor, but also perform the procedure at the courthouse, subdistrict. All the cases with a maximum claim of €5.000,- and all lease and labour cases.We can also perform procedure for all cases with claims above €5.000,-. So we can also help you with all cases which are brought to court.

      • Execution path
        After the judge has deemed your claim just  and has indicated a sentence, the bailiff can collect your claim. The first thing we do is officially notify your debtor about the sentence and summon him to fulfill his obligations. If the debtor still doesn’t fulfill his obligation, we have several ways to realize that:
        1.Seizure of income
        2. Seizure under the bank deposits
        3. Seizure under a third party which has funds or goods from your debtor
        4.Seizure of property (house etc.)
        5.Seizure of possessions.

Just because we have the above described options to our availability doesn’t mean we always use them. Maybe you still, even though we’re in this fase of the process,  prefer a voluntary payment settlement. We can even give your debtor the opportunity to pay his debt to us in terms.  You can always take steps if the debtor still doesn’t settle the payment. That is why we always establish the legal collection process in consultation with you. Swier cs advises you from our experience, but you decide which path to take.

Other services

Swier cs offers you more besides a healthy debtor portfolio. Here’s an overview of our other services.

Swier cs is collection specialist and bailiff. That means that Swier cs in practice of the ambt of bailiff is qualified for the hereafter described actions.

        • Lease termination
          Most lease contracts state that termination of the lease must take place in the writ. This means that the lease can only be terminated if the bailiff has visited the letter and has handed him a written document(writ). This is consent with the in the contract stated term. This way of termination offers the security that the will to terminate the agreement is actually known to the letter. This can come in handy for those cases in which the lease does not state this.

        • Interrupting the limitation period
          A claim expires after two years for, by example, consumer purchases and after five years by most other agreements. That means that after that time you lose all the rights, whether legal or not, to satisfaction or compliance.The law states that you can interrupt the limitation period by sending a written notification to the debtor, in which you hold the right to performance.  If you send the notification yourself, you don’t have the guarantee that the limitation period is interrupted. If you let Swier cs do it, than you do have compelling evidence to prevent performance.

        • Sequestration
          The meaning of sequestration is when a bailiff is sent out to record a certain situation in an official report. He does this by describing everything he finds on site. The description is, where possible, supported by video material. This official report can be used as compelling evidence in court. Sequestration is for example used for infringement of copy and imagerights. But also for the situation described below.Suppose you own a painting company and after a conflict your employee calls in sick with a painful back. Out of contact with your employee and people from his surroundings you know that he’s doing another job at his sister in law. You ask the bailiff to go the address of the sister in law to record that your employee is working there. Which means his absence isn’t in consistency with the reality. The bailiff will go to the address given by you to make an official report from what he finds there, if needed supported by photo’s.  You will receive the official report and can start thinking about whether or not to take steps.

        • Seizure of findings
          Sometimes it is, or seems, necessary to secure a claim. Even before the court judges the assignable nature of a claim. For example. When it appears that the actions of your debtor seem to lead to some present assets disappearing before the verdict is given. It is then possible to ask the judge for permission to confiscate certain assets or funds, because there is a just reason for embezzlement.

        • Execution verdict
          You have been to court and a verdict has been given to your advantage, but the other party refuses to pay. You can than call on a bailiff. He will officially notify the other party. If this doesn’t lead to payment, than the bailiff can take over the execution path. (Click here for an explanation of the execution path).

        • Summation writ
          This is the reminder that the bailiff delivers to the address of your debtor.  A summation writ is sometimes used in the amicable collection process and has as an advantage that the bailiff can check the address of your debtor and the summation really reaches your debtor. On top of that, it can give an insight to the surroundings of your debtor. And if she/he is home, than there is the possibility to discuss the claim.
