In business today, boundaries and borders no longer exist as they once did – a majority of companies do some level of international trade. So it would stand to reason that there would be many companies to choose from when seeking an international debt collection agency. However, there are actually very few quality international debt collection agencies available to support a creditor with foreign debtors. If you’re doing business around the world, it’s critical that you partner with an international collection agency to assist in collecting unpaid business debt.
With decades of experience collecting worldwide, STA International has established a market position as one of the few commercial collection agencies with expertise in international collections. We specialize in international debt collection and successfully collect commercial debt in North and South America, Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and parts of Asia. We employ foreign-national collectors who speak the same language, understand the local culture and have a clear concept of localized laws. With the communication barrier lowered, access to a full recovery is opened, and the process of collection is identical to our domestic US recoveries. We’ll speak with a decision-maker at your debtor, ask why the account is still outstanding, resolve any spurious disputes, and leverage amicable collection to achieve payment. If necessary, we will forward the account to a debt collection agency or debt collection lawyer based in the debtor’s country or city. What does this mean for you? This strategy increases the speed of collection and reduces the cost of collection.
