Our special services for municipalities

Efficient doubtful debt recovery

Claims and bad debts considerably tax your municipality's budget. Even small amounts such as EUR 20 have large repercussions if taken together. We keep the financial position of your debtors under constant surveillance and pursue debts for up to 30 years. We maintain the contact and develop sustainable solutions with the debtor based on his financial situation.

Insolvency of a debtor is always unpleasant. On average, proceedings take 3 years and raise lots of questions. In this situation, we provide you with extensive support.
