Debt collection at local and global level

Accelerate the payment of your outstanding receivables.

Benefits of choosing our Debt Collection solutions in Switzerland and abroad

Delayed or missing payments can greatly disrupt your cash flow and impact your business as a whole. This challenge is especially pronounced when defaulting debtors are located internationally, as recovering outstanding receivables from them can be complex for companies. This is where a strong partner offering global debt collection services becomes exceptionally valuable.

  • Outstanding debts are collected globally

    While pursuing debtors within Switzerland might remain relatively uncomplicated, the scenario changes when defaulting clients are situated internationally. Operating through direct presence in over 100 countries and extending our reach to another 95 countries through an expansive network, we ensure the swift and skilled retrieval of your overdue debts, no matter where your customers are located. This significantly enhances the probability of eventual payment, while simultaneously minimizing delays and liquidity constraints.

  • You are charged only for receivables that are successfully recovered

    With Coface's debt collection service, cost savings are ensured, as you are billed solely for the agreed-upon commission on the amounts we effectively recover for you.

  • Your customer relationships remain unaffected

    By entrusting your receivables management to the expertise of Coface, we ensure that your business relationships remain minimally affected. You can continue focusing on the positive aspects of your business, while we handle the less enjoyable tasks related to outstanding receivables and debt collection behind the scenes.

Patricia J. , Global Sales Director in Pharmaceutical industry

How do I demand that my key client settles their invoices without putting too much strain on our business relationship that keeps my company afloat? Coface knows how to do just that, leaving me free to discuss new projects with the client.

Johan H., small business owner in Retail sector

My client in Vietnam still hadn’t settled his invoice after 8 months even though they’d received the goods without a problem. But - thanks to Coface - I was indemnified in 2 weeks.

Hassan B., CFO in textile sector

A number of clients weren’t honouring big invoices that were pending payment. It was taking up too much time and too much tracking with very little return. Thanks to Coface, I’ve now got more peace of mind, it’s more efficient and I’ve got better liquidity.
