conclusion
Conclusion
  • The litigation and commercial arbitration processes can be relatively effective for collecting debt. If litigation is the chosen method, it is essential that pre-litigations measures are carefully planned and integrated into a company's Accounts Receivable Management process. The key to success is in assessing each account individually and making a judgment on the most appropriate course of action to pursue. It is important to weigh the cost of the procedure against the value of the debt to be recovered. Despite its benefits, Litigation remains one of the most under-used process for debt recovery. An overhaul of enforcement provisions including further procedural changes may well serve to accelerate its popularity.
  • If arbitration is advised and preferred, a company's success lies in its close understanding of the arbitration procedures.
  • The countries in the Middle East region are still developing economies and the business climate is often volatile. In order to hedge one's risk, a company must understand the debt collection process when doing business in the Middle East.
