German term or phrase: Nichteinbringlichkeit
Zufolge Nichteinbringlichkeit werden die durch die Kaution von Fr. 1000 nach Vorabzug der Busse nicht gedeckten Kosten einstweilen abgeschrieben.
What is 'Nichteinbringlichkeit'?
This sentence appears in a 'Strafbefehl' for someone who has violated traffic regulations whilst employed as a chauffeur.

English translation:unrecoverable
Explanation:
"non-collectibility" sounds like Swiss English to me.

Romain is the only business/legal dictionary I have that shows "collectibility" (6000 AV hits, mostly concerning collecting in the sense of "sammeln"), and the term "non-collectibility" only gets 181 AV (English) hits.

Neither "collectibility nor "non-collectibility" are in NODE. It is also interesting to note that neither "collectibility nor "non-collectibility" are in the Romain (English) version published in 2000.

Romain, Hamblock/Wessels, and Eichborn show:

uncollectible: 2700 AV hits

uncollectibles: 112 AV hits

irrecoverable: 4400 AV hits

unrecoverable: 21000 AV hits (also the only NODE "hit")

I believe I would go with "unrecoverable" because it seems to be the most widely used term. You would have to change the structure of the sentence somewhat (maybe for the better), for example:

"The costs not covered by the bail of Fr. 1000, after deduction of the fine, were provisionally written off as unrecoverable." (10 percent shorter)

Sounds like the guy absconded, and the state can't collect for costs incurred.

HTH!
