Brief information about Schölvinck-Incasso
As an introduction I shall first briefly describe my firm. After that I will explain the procedure with the corresponding tariffs.
After my studies at the University of Leiden I worked as a lawyer with a number of companies. In 1996 I set up Schölvinck-Incasso. My firm is located in the centre of Amsterdam, but the work extends over the Netherlands. My clientele ranges from the one man business to the listed company.
On request I also try to collect money outside the Netherlands.
The debtor is given notice and summoned to pay. If no response or payment follows, debtor is contacted by telephone. If debtor responds to you I would ask you to refer them to my firm.
Your claim (capital sum) is increased by interest and collection costs. The collection costs are determined from the scale of charges of the cantonal court,
After summons there are two options:
- Debtor pays everything. You receive the capital (€ 10,000) + statutory interest (€ 150) = € 10,150. The collection costs are for my firm. On balance the collection has cost you nothing.
- Debtor pays only the capital + where applicable the interest. If my firm does not succeed in recovering the collection costs, I charge these costs to you. Depending on the extent of our work the amount of these costs may be reasonably limited.
Summon him before the court
If debtor does not pay voluntarily, it is possible to summon him before the court. I shall consult you first about this. Here I also try to recover all the interest and costs from the debtor. After the court has given judgement, I look after the collection, if necessary by seizure from a bank account, company or household effects.
I will keep you informed of the progress of any proceedings.
I hope I have given you sufficient information here.
Mr E.Ph. Schölvinck
