Introduction to collecting debt in Kazakhstan
If you have a hard time collecting debt in Kazakhstan, we can help you get paid by your Kazakhstani customers.
In Kazakhstan, the person who owes money is called the debtor. The person who gave them the money is called the creditor. If the creditor tries to get the money themselves, t's called first-party collection. If they ask someone else to help them get the money, it's called third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan has a few steps that need to happen before a debt can be collected. The image below shows the standard process for collecting debt in Kazakhstan:
1 Upload your claim:
To get help recovering your debt, you will need to find a debt collection partner. You can upload your claim to their website. If you use Debitura, we will give you 3 quotes from local partners in the Asian country where your case is happening. This is free - you don't need to pay anything.
2 Amicable collection:
The collection process begins with sending reminders to the person who owes you money. The reminders are sent through email, SMS, letter, 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, which means you only pay a small success fee if we recover your debt. Amicable collections with Debitura are 100% risk-free!
If you have not received payment from the debtor after trying to work it out, it is time to evaluate the next steps. We will look at the size of your claim and how likely it is that you will get paid, among other factors, to help you decide what to do next. There are three typical next steps:
If you are claiming an amount of money that is less than 2,000 to 5,000 Euros, it might not be worth it to take 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.
B: Legal collections:
It's a good idea to go through the legal system if you're trying to get a lot of money. The way you do it might be different depending on how much money you're asking for and what it's for. Usually, it takes about a year and a half for everything to be settled.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you are claiming money from has said that they owe you money, or if there is a court order saying they owe you money, you can go to the bailiff's court to get the money.
At Debitura, we can help you with all three steps in Kazakhstan.

The analysis is concluding that the risk of running a business in Kazakhstan 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 Kazakhstan well. If possible, provide a short credit period or even better upfront payment. The medium risk score is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Kazakhstan
Our conclusion based on the economic risk factors, is that the economic risk in Kazakhstan is high (5 out of 6). An economic risk of 5 out of 6 is relatively high in Asia.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Kazakhstan is 190,81 bn. USD (2021), growing by 4% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Kazakhstan ranks #53 out of 183 countries and has a medium-sized economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #102 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered an excellent growing economy.
GDP per capita is 10041 USD, ranking Kazakhstan number #62 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Kazakhstan is pretty average compared to all the countries in the world.
You can see a more throughout picture of GDP and economic growth in Kazakhstan in the table below:
Another significant influencer for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You can see a more throughout picture of monetary KPIs in Kazakhstan in the table below:
The business environment risk in Kazakhstan
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Kazakhstan is medium-high (4 out of 6), which is a pretty average risk score in Asia.
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. Take a look at the important facts for Kazakhstan in the table below:
As you can see above, the property rights index is 60 in Kazakhstan, which is considered quite low in Asia.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 76 in Kazakhstan, a pretty good score for a country in Asia.
Kazakhstan's overall economic freedom index is 71 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Kazakhstan
The political risk in Kazakhstan is high, with a score of 5/6. This is a relatively high political risk score in Asia.
The governance and political stability indicators are critical drivers for political risk. An overview of Kazakhstan 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 Kazakhstan, the rule of law index is at -0,49 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Kazakhstan 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 high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the very weak political stability index, and the large shadow economy that is 32,82% of Kazakhstan's GDP.
The commercial risk in Kazakhstan
In Kazakhstan, the commercial risk score is 2/4, which in our model is a low score. This low commercial risk score is pretty average compared to the average in Asia.
The commercial risk is impacted by a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Kazakhstan in the table below:
Kazakhstan has a total of foreign exchange reserves of 34.38 bn. USD.
The financing risk in Kazakhstan
We have calculated the financing risk to be 4/4, which equals a high risk. A high financing risk score is high for countries in Asia.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the critical facts for Kazakhstan in the table below:
In Kazakhstan, the credit information sharing index is 8 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The consequence of that number, is that the access and quality of credit information available in Kazakhstan is high.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Kazakhstan. You would be able to find a good local credit rating agency that can help you analyse the creditworthiness of your specific customers.
Your juridical rights as a creditor are 8 out of 12 and, therefore, medium.
