How to collect debts in Turkey?

Since 2011 ARS Consultancy had been working with a wide range of debt collection files in Turkey. Nowadays, ARS Consultancy is the Turkey’s first and largest International Pre-Legal Debt Collection Agency.

Turkey, as an full integrated economy in the World, had struggled in the recent months along with other countries, with the ongoing covid_19 pandemic and its consequencies.

2020 2021 default trends.

Default rates have increased around the world given current market conditions: slow growth in developed economies, the strengthening of the dollar in the world market, and slow but persistent inflation, particularly in the price of commodities.

This has had a negative impact on emerging markets. For example, in China, with the world’s largest credit market after the US, the pace of late payments reached a new record in 2021, crossing the 100 billion yuan (USD 15 billion) mark. Notable sources of risk include real estate developers and local state-owned companies.

But the good news is that late payments are still manageable. At the macroeconomic level, Turkey is one of the few economies in the world that experienced an economic growth of around 3% in 2020 and it is expected to still grow in 2021. This is explained by the credit stimulus that allow companies have liquidity to maintain their working capital. This includes their liabilities in general.

Looking forward

The challenge is clear: At the Debt Collection Process in Turkey consist to get companies and individuals to prioritize their debts with Creditors abroad. This is mainly explained by the simple reason that the Turkish lira has suffered successive devaluations which leads domestic agents to delay their debts in stronger foreign currencies (EUR, GBP, USD, RUB, among others) or deferral payments.

The second good news is that in Turkey, the ARS Consultancy team has been working very closely with this type of scenarios in order to reach receivables in Turkey as the only target. Our main focus is on finding payment possibilities even in contexts where companies prioritize their commitments either with employees and local suppliers.
