Debt collection, a vital aspect of any business or financial transaction, involves the pursuit of overdue payments from entities owing a debt. The process can be daunting, but with the right approach and legal guidance, successful debt recovery is achievable.

The Process of Debt Collection

Collecting a debt in Turkey necessitates an in-depth understanding of local laws and regulations. The steps to guide creditors through the debt collection process are as follows:

  • Initial Contact: Establish communication with the debtor and courteously remind them of their outstanding debt.
  • Demand Letter: If the debtor does not respond, send a formal demand letter through legal channels.
  • Legal Action: If negotiations fail, creditors may need to file a lawsuit to obtain a court order for debt repayment.
  • Enforcement: If the court rules in favor of the creditor, various enforcement mechanisms, such as wage garnishment or asset seizure, can be employed to recover the debt.

Money Recovery Procedures in Turkey

Turkish law provides various avenues for creditors to pursue money recovery. These include:

  • Execution Proceedings: Enforcement proceedings allow creditors to collect their debts through court-ordered measures.
  • Attachment: Creditors can seek to attach the debtor’s movable or immovable property to secure the debt.
  • Bankruptcy and Insolvency: Creditors can initiate bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings to recover funds if the debtor is unable to pay debts.

Bankruptcy and Insolvency: Steps and Procedures

Bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings require careful consideration. Our expert İstanbul Law Office attorneys guide creditors through the following steps:

  • Filing a Bankruptcy Petition: Creditors can initiate bankruptcy proceedings by filing a petition with the relevant commercial court.
  • Assessment of Assets: The court-appointed trustee assesses the debtor’s assets to determine the distribution of funds among creditors.
  • Creditor Committee: A creditor committee is formed to represent the interests of all creditors during the process.
  • Debt Discharge or Restructuring: Depending on the situation, the court may discharge the debtor’s debt or implement a restructuring plan.
