Introduction to collecting debt in Guyana
Are you having trouble getting money that is owed to you by people in Guyana? Don't worry, we can help make it easier for you. When someone owes money, the person who owes the money is called a "debtor" and the person or company that is owed the money is called a "creditor." If the creditor collects the debt themselves, it's called "first-party collection." But, if the creditor hires another company or person to collect the debt for them, it's called "third-party collections."
The debt collection process in Guyana
In Guyana, when someone owes money and needs to pay it back, there are usually several steps that are taken to collect the debt.
The picture below shows the usual way that this happens in Guyana.
1 Upload your claim:

Here, you can submit your debt claim and get quotes from local partners in the country where your debt is located.

2 Amicable collection:
When you owe someone money, they may try to collect it from you in a process called "campaign." This means they will send you friendly reminders through different ways such as email, text message, and mail. They want you to either pay the money back or agree to a plan to pay it back. Debitura is a company that offers to help collect debt for you in a way that is not risky for you. They will only charge you a small fee if they are able to get your money back for you. So, if you use Debitura to help collect your debt, you don't have to worry about losing any more money.
If the person you lent money to has not paid you back after trying to work things out peacefully, it's time to think about what to do next. We will consider how much money is owed, the chance of getting paid, and other important information to help you make the best decision. Usually, there are three options to choose from:
If you are trying to get back a small amount of money, usually less than 2,000 to 5,000 euros, it may not be worth it to go through the process of taking legal action. Instead, we suggest using a service called "debt surveillance." This means that we will continue to contact the person who owes you money and try to come to an agreement without going to court.
B: Legal collections:
It's a good idea to go through the legal system for bigger claims. The steps you need to take will vary depending on what you're claiming and how much it's worth. Usually, it takes around a year and a half to finish the process.
C: Debt enforcement:
If you have proof that the person you are trying to collect money from has agreed to pay you or if a judge has ordered them to pay you, you can use the help of a bailiff to make sure they follow through on their promise or court order. This process is called enforcing your claim.
At Debitura, we can help you with every part of the process in Guyana.

Our analysis is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Guyana
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Guyana is 7,41 bn. USD (2021), growing by 19,93% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Guyana ranks #144 out of 183 countries and has a small economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #3 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a fast-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 9375 USD, ranking Guyana number #67 out of 183 countries. The result of this is purchasing power of citizens in Guyana is average compared to the rest of the world.
You can see a more detailed picture of GDP and economic growth in Guyana in the table below:
Another critical driver for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You can see a more detailed picture of monetary KPIs in Guyana in the table below:
The inflation in Guyana was 5% in 2021 which is considered a medium inflation rate.
The interest rate for businesses is 8,88%.
The business environment risk in Guyana
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. Take a look at the important facts for Guyana in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 45 in Guyana, which is considered low in South America.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 58 in Guyana, a pretty average score for a country in South America.
Guyana's overall economic freedom index is 57 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Guyana
The governance and political stability indicators are vital drivers for political risk. An overview of Guyana 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 Guyana, the rule of law index is at -0,4 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Guyana has, therefore, a very low rule of law index, which means it is often close to impossible to enforce your contracts. We, therefore, recommend avoiding credits and recommend charging upfront payment instead.
Other drivers for the very low political risks are the weak control of corruption, the weak political stability index, and the large shadow economy that is 26,09% of Guyana's GDP.
The commercial risk in Guyana
The commercial risk is impacted by a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Guyana in the table below:
Guyana has a foreign exchange reserve of 0.79 bn. USD.
The financing risk in Guyana
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. Additional facts and info can be found for Guyana in the table below:
In Guyana, 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 Guyana is high.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Guyana. You should therefore be able 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 3 out of 12 and, therefore, very weak.
The very low financing risk for creditors also impacts the high interest rate in the private sector of 8,88%.
