Debt collection in Israel

By: Adv. Eli Shimony

Debt collection in Israel and legal proceedings when the other party/debtor is in Israel is a complex procedure. Sometimes debtors tend to waive the debt, in order to avoid many expenses and lengthy proceedings in order to exercise their rights.

The reasons for this, mainly, are the distance, cultural differences, a complex and different set of laws, a different legal system in Israel, and unfamiliar procedures.

Debt collection in Israel.

There are mainly two types of debts, and there is a different approach for each one of them. Commercial debts versus private debts. The legal solutions to both types of debt can be different and varied, along with a different outcome range.

Sometimes ancillary services are also required, such as locating the debtor, financial investigation (private or business debtor), and the ability to collect the debt along with the effort required to do so.
