Debt collection Russia? Where will you litigate?
In debt collection Russia there is always the important question: what if a Russian debtor does not pay? Which court should then take cognizance of the dispute – the one in the country of you as the creditor or of your Russian debtor? And which law should be applied? Russian? Or Dutch? Or the law of another country? Based on the file, the Russia collection specialists will give you sound advice and determine the strategy.
Another important factor in debt collection in Russia is: where does your debtor have assets to attach? In Russia or also abroad?
The legal procedure in debt collection Russia
Legal proceedings in debt collection Russia begin by filing a reasoned petition with the appropriate court, located in the debtor’s region. Within a month there will be an initial hearing, at which debtor and creditor will be heard, along with their lawyers. Usually there is a judgment within three to four months. Within one month after the verdict, a party can appeal. And only if that has not happened can the creditor apply to the court for an enforcement order. With this, an attachment can be made.
Appeal in debt collection Russia
Are you being appealed? Or do you want to appeal? If so, those proceedings usually take only two months. And that is short. However, this appeal judgment can be enforced immediately. In theory it is possible to appeal against this verdict again, in cassation. However, the cassation judge no longer rules on the facts. Only on the course of the proceedings.
Attachment (enforcement) in debt collection Russia
A judgment can be used to make an attachment. An important part of debt collection Russia is garnishment. The Russian government has established a certain staff, which is in charge of enforcing court judgments, the so-called Federal Bailiffs Service or Federal Service of Court Bailiffs part of the Ministry of Justice. As of February 1, 2008, Russia has new legislation prescribing the actions and capabilities of this staff service, including with respect to garnishment.
In Russia, it is possible for a creditor himself, with an enforcement order from the court, to a) engage a bailiff or b) approach a banking institution and request a bank attachment. Within 3 days of receiving the request, the bank must then make a statement: funds affected or not and also transfer the funds. Does the bank not seize funds within this period? Then the bank will receive a penalty of 50% of the value of the total judgment. And you as a creditor can then collect that.
A bailiff who takes on the collection of the Russia judgement gives your debtor 5 days to pay, to start with. No payment? Then the Russian state levies a tax on the principal sum from the judgment – by your debtor to pay – and also bailiffs impose fines by not paying on time. Naturally, your debtor must also pay all the costs of garnishments and the costs of sales of property or vehicles, for example
