GREEK TRAGEDY TURNED INTO DRAMATIC FINANCIAL TRIUMPH

This is a case study illustrating how a Greek translation company recovered  a large debt from UK translation company, writes Steven Little, of Debt Collect UK LimitedOur Greece-based client was owed £109,000 (€125,000) from a UK translation company. The invoices raised were between 1 – 6 months old. Our client had no idea how to pursue the debt. They had consulted with their lawyers in Greece, who had advised them that this would be a very lengthy, time consuming and expensive process, as they would need to raise a court action locally, obtain a European Enforcement Order, transfer this into the English Courts and then have the order enforced. All of this would take 3 – 4 months depending on the courts in both countries.
