Credit Check and Collection Services

Credit Check We can offer our clients credit information in the form of a company profile of your business partner, so that you can review their credit history and reliability.
Collection Services Unfortunately it is not an uncommon occurrence that a client is delayed in paying an invoice, or does not make a payment at all. For these reasons, the AHK Israel has successfully aided companies in the collection of due notices from defaulting debtors for many years.

There is a wide-variety of reasons for why companies default on a payment. In many cases, misunderstandings such as an incorrect contact person, or language difficulties are the cause for non-payment. In other cases, the distance is to blame. Some debtors believe that they are not within the reach of creditors and therefore released from their financial obligations. It can be proven that this is not the case through the numerous cases we have closed in past years.

The efforts of the chamber are based on an out-of-court settlement of debt cases, which present a cost-effect method for companies to collect payment. Lawsuits are quite costly for a variety of reasons and even with a successful verdict, the plaintiff is often responsible for these costs. Our experience has shown that lawsuits are worthwhile only once the claim has reached a sum of $40,000 or more.

An Overview of Your Advantages:
  • We offer a professional and objective mediation between the debtor and the creditor.
  • We are located in Israel, which often creates more pressure than collection letters and collection efforts from Germany.
  • As a Chamber of Commerce we take on a objective mediation role, which resolves potential misunderstandings between the parties involved. 
  • Our professional staff utilizes their knowledge of German and Israeli business culture to efficiently handle your case.
  • In addition to a low base fee, commissions are required only in successful collection cases.

Direct Mailing Service

On your behalf, potential business partners are identified and contacted by the means of a first contact letter together with company advertising material which you have provided.

Our Services
  • Selection of potential business partners based on the ideal partner profile provided by the customer
  • A partner profile list is provided and it has been checked that the entries still exist and are up-to-date 
  • Translation, cultural adaptation and mailing of the contact letter designed by the customer 
  • Follow-up phone calls to all companies on the mailing list

Business Partner Search

Business Partner Search Through web and database research as well as direct communication with industry specific organizations, our Business Partner Search enables you to have a competent and independent assessment of the selling potential of your products and your chances for success in Israel. Based on your given criteria, we will work with you to determine your target group of potential business partners. By personally contacting each company within your target group, we will be able to determine the appropriate contact person as well as their interest in your products or services. Please note that, due to the General Data Protection Regulation within the EU, we are only able to share contact details with the consent of the respective person.

The goal of a Business Partner Search is firstly, to arrange concrete meetings and secondly, to build the basis for future business partnerships. This often leads to business trips to Israel in order to meet business partners in person.
