Debt collection in Hungary

When your company is conducting business in Hungary, you probably have noticed the differences between the Hungarian and your own business culture. Being an international creditor, debt collection in Hungary can, thus, be a challenge. We have lawyers that have knowledge of the Hungarian language, regulations and are familiar with the Hungarian business culture.

Successful collection in Hungary

In Hungary, it is important that you are able to prove your claim, when your Hungarian debtor does not pay the invoices. Having the following documents in your possession will be beneficial during the dispute:

  • Signed agreements;
  • General conditions;
  • Order confirmations;
  • Copies of invoices;
  • Proof of delivery or services;
  • Correspondence with the debtor.

If possible, we advise to record all agreements and conditions in English and/or the native language of each party.

In case your Hungarian debtor does not want to pay, we advise you to immediately send a reminder. You should state a clear description of the invoice and indicate a clear term of payment around 14 days in this reminder.

If the Hungarian company does not respond to your reminder, you need to hand over your claim for collection. We are able to collect most claims in Hungary extrajudicially, in the form of a payment arrangement or otherwise.

Extrajudicial and judicial debt collection in Hungary

After you have handed over your claim for collection, we will demand in writing and on the telephone that your Hungarian debtor pays the invoices. In case the Hungarian debtor does not pay within the stated term, then legal proceedings will be commenced in consultation with you. Often this step will encourage your Hungarian debtor to take his debt seriously and pay the invoices.

No Win, No Fee

In case we do not collect, then you do not have to pay us a legal fee. In our view, companies should always be able to opt for the quality of a debt collection lawyer. In case the debtor does not pay, we will merely charge you are administrative fee of €150.00.


Because we collect internationally and have lawyers which have extensive knowledge of the Hungarian culture, language and regulations we achieve optimum results for debt collection in Hungary. Would you like to receive more information? Please contact us.
