    General comments regarding process in Syria for debt collection and how differs from UK / other European countries:

    Regarding the mode of collecting debts in Syria:

    What is the debt collection process in Syria?

    The mode of collecting debts in Syria depends, first of all, upon the type of the debt required to be collected as well as upon the documents available with the creditor. The collection process starts with giving a notice through the Notary Public and then to file a judicial action. After issuing the decision, this decision will be placed with the enforcement department.

    Average length of time to collect a debt?

    The period of collection varies according to the type of the issue and the claimed debt as well as the place of filing the action, that is to say, we cannot fix a time-limit for collecting the debt as this would be completed merely upon sending the notice of the Notary Public or proceeding with the action until the issuance of a conclusive judgment by the Court of Cassation which is the last court for prosecution with. In this case, collection would take a period of time varying between four to five years.

    Can late payment fees / interest to be added to claims?

    With respect to the fees of the action of the late payment, these fees can be determined for each individual action because there is a difference in the value and type of the collection amounts, the place of collection and the period of collection. Here agreement shall be made for every action independent from other actions.
