Sector-specific limitation periods must also be taken into account, such as in the transport sector. Are you wondering what the limitation period is for your claim?

Extrajudicial phase (faza pozasądowa)
After we have entered your case into our system, we will start the extrajudicial process. This phase preferably begins with sending a formal notice of default.

Judicial phase (etap sądowy)
Nine times out of ten, your debtor will proceed with payment in the out-of-court phase. Unfortunately, not every debtor is the same. Debt collection Poland has different judicial routes. We will explain these.
- The injunction procedure (postępowanie nakazowe)
This procedure is for receivables in which the debt has been acknowledged, for example, if your debtor says, ‘Next week I’ll pay.’ or ‘I want to make a payment arrangement (and you don’t).’
- The accelerated procedure (postępowanie upominawcze).
This procedure applies to claims not exceeding PLN 10 000. The name of the procedure says it all, it is an accelerated procedure.
Does your debtor dispute the claim? Is your claim higher than PLN 10 000? No worries, our debt collection specialists know how to deal with this. Collection Poland has numerous procedures. Together with the collection specialist you can determine the route in your case. This way you will not encounter any surprises.
Polish debtors are often late
In Poland there are tight deadlines within which the debtor (dłużnik) must respond. If your debtor is late or fails to submit an objection, the court will rule in absentia. Experience shows that many Polish debtors do not submit a defense. And that is beneficial for the success rate of debt collection in Poland.
Role of the bailiff
Nine out of ten court proceedings are won by us. If the judgment is obtained, it will be enforced by one of the local bailiffs (komornicy). The bailiff will ensure that your claim is collected. This is usually done by attachment. A bailiff can seize the following objects.
- movable property,
- income from employment,
- bank accounts,
- other claims,
- other property rights,
- real estate,
Due to fast and decisive action by our bailiff, your claim is quickly collected and the chances of success are also maximum for collection Poland.
If the documents show that your debtor has been declared bankrupt (bankructwo), we can file your claim with the competent Polish court. Tight deadlines apply. So don’t wait too long.
Bankruptcy as a means of pressure
In addition, it is also possible to use the bankruptcy of your debtor as a means of pressure. In this case, one of the local debt collection Poland specialists will file for the bankruptcy of your debtor. Experience shows that the debtor (dłużnik) will quickly proceed to payment, because it becomes ‘serious’. We can give your debtor a run for his money.
