Hi,

I thought I'll repost this here also.

A first-time translation client (English>Lithuanian) appears to be not willing to pay after 4 months, numerous reminders and a few promises to pay. It is a communications firm in Norway. Does anyone here have any experience with debt collection in Norway?

Thanks

debt recovery process Jan 3

one month after sending the invoice, you send a payment reminder.
If you are not paid after one month of the reminder, you send a so-called "inkasso" claim.
this can be done through an invoicing company such as https://oddcoll.com/sv/inkasso-norge/
this will force the company to pay you.
worst case, if they still refuse to pay, you have the right (in Norway) to deduct the unpaid invoice as a business loss on your taxes.
I would also bomb their various emails with the invoice and payment demand, including the ceo's email.
and tell the world on their Facebook page… and denounce them to proz blue board…

thanks Jeffrey Feb 12

I tried oddcall. My client seems to be insolvent. Do you know if there's a Norwegian site I can check this?
