The legal action of debt collection is one of the most common types of litigation in China. Despite its difficulties (evidence, language problems, local interests’ priority), EU SMEs can often prevent it or at least manage it easily with a proper preparation.
Thus, it is important to know as much as possible about the counterparts they are going to do business with. All this information is made available on National Courts database of companies which have been engaged in litigation proceedings.
It is worth noticing that domestic Chinese cases and cases involving foreign parties are not always subject to the same rules and that different regions have different jurisdiction standards.
This webinar will inform you on how to proceed when there is an outstanding debt to be formally collected, which are the most common issues in debt collection and how to avoid them and shares practical advice on how to prepare for the dispute.
