If you conduct business with Ukrainian businesses, you will be aware that the business culture differs from other cultures in many aspects. As Ukrainian regulations are also very different from those in most other countries, you are at a disadvantage as a creditor.

– Correspondence with the debtor.
If possible, we advise to record all business agreements and conditions in English and/or the native languages of each party.
In case your debtor does not want to pay, we advise you to immediately send a reminder, stating a clear description of the invoice and indicating a clear term of payment of usually around 14 days.
Does your Ukrainian debtor does not respond to your reminder? Then you need to act swiftly and hand your claim over for collection. We are able to collect most claims in Ukraine extrajudicially, in the form of a payment arrangement or otherwise.
When you hand your claim over for collection, we will demand in writing and on the telephone that your debtor effect payment. If necessary, we will also engage in a face to face conversation with your Ukrainian business partner.
