Introduction to collecting debt in Egypt
If you have trouble getting people to pay you money they owe you in Egypt, don't worry. We can help you get paid by your Egyptian customers. The person who owes the money is called the debtor, and the person who issued the debt or invoice is called the creditor. If the creditor collects the debt him- or herself, it's called first-party collection. If the creditor outsources the collection process to a third party, that's called third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Egypt
The debt collection process in Egypt usually happens in more than one step.
The image below explains our standard process for collecting debt in Egypt:
1 Upload your claim:
If you want someone to help you get your money back, you will need to find a debt collection partner. This is a person or company that helps people get money that they are owed. You will need to give them some information about your case, and they will try to get the money for you. If you use Debitura, we will give you 3 quotes from local partners in the Africa country relevant to your case. This is 100% free - no strings attached.
2 Amicable collection:
The collection process begins with sending reminders to the person who owes you money. This is called a campaign. The reminders go through email, SMS, and other ways in the specific country. The goal is to get the debtor to pay or acknowledge the debt and start a payment plan. Debitura offers a no-cure-no-pay solution for amicable collection. This means that you only have to pay a small success fee if we recover your debt. Amicable collections with Debitura are risk-free!
If you have not received payment from the debtor after trying to work things out, it is time to look at what to do next. We will look at how much money you are owed, the chance of getting paid and other factors. There are three common next steps:
If you are owed less than 2,000 to 5,000 Euros, it is often not worth taking any more legal action. In this case, we recommend "debt surveillance". This means that we will keep trying to contact the person who owes you money and try to reach an agreement about how much they will pay you back.
B: Legal collections:
We suggest that you begin going through a legal process if you have a big claim. The steps you need to take will vary depending on the specific kind and amount of your claim. Usually, it takes about a year and a half to complete the process.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person who owes you money has said that they owe you money or if there is a court order, you can go to the bailiff's office to get your money.
At Debitura, we can help you with all three steps in Egypt.

Insolvency proceedings in Egypt
If your debtor cannot pay his debts, you can start an insolvency procedure. The goal of this procedure is to sell the debtor's assets and give the money to the creditors. The creditors with the most important debts will get paid first.
Our analysis concludes that the risk of running a business in Egypt is medium. Based on this medium score, we recommend being careful providing credit and considering charging upfront payment or using credit insurance when trading if you don't know the customer in Egypt well. If possible, provide a short credit period or even better upfront payment. The average risk is conluded on the following areas:
The economic risk in Egypt
Our analysis shows that the economic risk in Egypt is high (5 out of 6). An economic risk of 5 out of 6 is pretty average in Africa.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Egypt is 404,14 bn. USD (2021), growing by 3,33% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Egypt ranks #34 out of 183 countries and has a large economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #121 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered an excellent growing economy.
GDP per capita is 3876 USD, ranking Egypt number #110 out of 183 countries. The result of this is purchasing power of citizens in Egypt is pretty average compared to all the countries in the world.
You can see a more throughout picture of GDP and economic growth in Egypt in the table below:
Another huge impact for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You can see a more throughout picture of monetary KPIs in Egypt in the table below:
The inflation in Egypt was 5,5% in 2021 which is considered a medium inflation rate.
The interest rate for businesses is 9,43%.
The business environment risk in Egypt
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Egypt is medium-high (4 out of 6), which is a relatively low risk score in Africa.
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. You can see the critical facts for Egypt in the table below:
In the above table, you can see, the property rights index is 51 in Egypt, which is considered pretty average in Africa.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 63 in Egypt, a quite good score for a country in Africa.
Egypt's overall economic freedom index is 56 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Egypt
The political risk in Egypt is high, with a score of 5/6. This is a pretty average political risk score in Africa.
The governance and political stability indicators are critical drivers for political risk. An overview of Egypt can be seen in the table below:
The rule of law index analyses to which extent agents have confidence in and abide by the rules of society, in particular the quality of contract enforcement, property rights, the quality of the courts, and the police's ability to enforce court orders.
When doing business in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Egypt, the rule of law index is at -0,24 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Egypt has, therefore, a low rule of law index, which means it often is very difficult to enforce your contracts. We, therefore, recommend avoiding credits and recommend charging upfront payment instead.
Other drivers for the high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the very weak political stability index, and the large shadow economy that is 33,32% of Egypt's GDP.
The commercial risk in Egypt
In Egypt, the commercial risk score is 3/4, which in our model is a medium score. This medium commercial risk score is relatively high compared to the average in Africa.
The commercial risk is relying on a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Egypt in the table below:
Egypt has a foreign exchange reserve of 39.82 bn. USD.
Egypt has a negative trade balance of -9,18% of GDP. This means that Egypt imports more goods and services than the country exports.
The annual growth of exports of goods and services has been growing -13,39% annually - now 11,1% of GDP. Import of goods and services represents 20,28% of the GDP in Egypt.
The financing risk in Egypt
We have calculated the financing risk to be 2/4, which equals a low risk. A low financing risk score is relatively low for countries in Africa.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the extra information for Egypt in the table below:
In Egypt, the credit information sharing index is 8 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The result of this is accessibility and quality of credit information available in Egypt is high.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Egypt. Based on this, it should be possible to to find a good local credit rating agency that can help you analyse the creditworthiness of your specific customers.
Your rights as a creditor are 5 out of 12 and, therefore, weak.
The low financing risk for creditors also impacts the high interest rate in the private sector of 9,43%.
