The Legal Aspects and Processes of Collecting Debt

The Legal Aspects and Processes of Collecting Debt

The legal framework that today’s credit departments have to work under has made collecting money more difficult for companies. Many corporates are using these changes to avoid or delay their financial payment obligations.

This Legal Aspects and Processes of Collecting Debt course will cover the key legal aspects and processes for debt collecting from the working of a sound credit application to preparing for debt enforcement and possible litigation. Areas such as fees, interest and other charges, debt enforcement in courts, dealing with liquidators or outsourcing difficult collections will be addressed.
