Creditors of Romanian persons or companies will have to consider the following costs related to debt collection procedures:

1. Attorney-fees.

We will be able to provide a quotation once we receive some initial information about your case.

2. Translations and postage costs.

All documents supplied as proof to the Court will have to be translated by a Romanian Sworn Translator beforehand. Notifications to the debtor as well as the initial claim with the Romanian Court will be done via Registered Post.

3. Court Fees.

Although the Summons of Payment only requires a minimum Court Fee, it has restrictive conditions. For Common Law procedures the Romanian Law has imposed the following taxes:

a)Up to 50 lei - 6 lei;
b)Between 51 lei and 500 lei - 6 lei + 10% of the amount exceeding 50 lei;
c)Between 501 lei and 5.000 lei - 51 lei + 8% of the amount exceeding 500 lei;

Other notes:

- All costs associated with the debt collection can be requested from the debtor in the event the trial is successful.
