Dear colleagues, last January I completed some jobs for a Swedish firm, which paid the first two invoices but has never paid the third, in spite of reminders, emails and phone calls. I have almost given up the idea of getting the money back (even though the sum is not at all irrelevant to me: 1800 EUR!), but I would like to ask you, and especially Swedish colleagues, if you have any idea of which body I should address in Sweden to try and get the money back. An international court case is out of question, of course.
Thank you
Marcella Rivatelli

Kronofogdemyndigheten Dec 23, 2004

The authority that you should turn to is the Swedish Enforcement Administration. Their website is www.rsv.se/kronofogden/ and they do have a summary available in English. Their e-mail address in Stockholm is kfm@kfm01.rsv.se

Hope this helps!

Clare

Turning to the "Enforcement Authority" will be helpful, but only if the client does not challange the bill. All they need to is to write a note that they don't agree with the claim, and you are back to "square one."

Someone posted not long ago information on a collection agency based in Malmo (that's Sweden) that might be able to help. (I dont repeat the information as I have no personal view as to this particular agency.

My personal suggestion would be to contact a Swedish lawyer in the town your client is, and ask them to write to your "former" client.
