Introduction to collecting debt in Liberia
Are you struggling to get paid by people in Liberia who owe you money? Don't worry, we can help make the process easier for you.
When someone owes money in Liberia, the person who owes the money is called the "debtor" and the person who gave the money or invoice is called the "creditor."
If the creditor collects the money themselves, it's called "first-party collection." But if the creditor hires someone else to collect the money, it's called "third-party collections."
The debt collection process in Liberia
In Liberia, there are several stages involved in the process of collecting debt. The graphic below outlines the typical steps we take when collecting debt.
1 Upload your claim:
If you don't want to handle recovering your debt on your own, the first step is to find a company that specializes in collecting debts and submitting your claim to them. One option is Debitura, which will give you three options for local partners in the African country related to your case, all at no cost to you.
2 Amicable collection:
When trying to collect a debt, the first step is usually to send multiple reminders to the person who owes you money. This can be done through email, text messages, letters, and any other way of communicating in the specific country. The goal is to get the debtor to either pay the debt or agree to start a plan to pay it back. With Debitura, there is a no-cure-no-pay solution, which means that you only have to pay a small fee if we are able to collect the debt for you. This means that using Debitura for amicable collections is completely risk-free!
If the person you loaned money to hasn't paid you back after trying to work things out nicely, it's time to think about what to do next. We'll take into account how much money you're owed, the likelihood of getting paid, and other important factors to help you decide what the best course of action is. There are usually three options to choose from.
If the amount of money you're claiming is less than $2,000 to $5,000, it usually doesn't make sense to continue with legal proceedings. In those situations, we suggest using "debt surveillance", which involves continuously contacting the person you're trying to get money from and trying to come to a friendly agreement.
B: Legal collections:
It's a good idea to begin a legal procedure for bigger issues. The steps to follow will vary depending on the specifics of your claim. Usually, it takes around a year and a half to complete the process.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person who owes you money agrees that they owe it to you, or if a judge has ordered them to pay you, you can use a special court to make them give you the money they owe. This court is called the bailiff's court.
Amicable collection in Liberia
At Debitura, we provide a safe and efficient way to collect money from someone who owes you. All you have to do is send us your claim, and we'll begin working on it within one day. We'll contact the person who owes you money using various methods, such as email, text messages, letters, phone calls, and social media.
Our goal is to either:
A) get the person to pay the full amount or
B) to agree to a plan to pay the debt over time.
However, if the person disagrees with your claim, we can't use this friendly approach and must move on to a legal process to collect the debt.

The analysis is concluding that the risk of doing business in Liberia is medium-high. Based on this medium-high score, we recommend always charging upfront payment or using credit insurance when trading with customers in Liberia, as it may be very difficult to get paid. The medium-high risk score is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Liberia
Our conclusion based on the economic risk factors, is that the economic risk in Liberia is very high (6 out of 6). An economic risk of 6 out of 6 is relatively high in Africa.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Liberia is 3,49 bn. USD (2021), growing by 4% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Liberia ranks #153 out of 183 countries and has a small economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #103 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered an excellent growing economy.
GDP per capita is 673 USD, ranking Liberia number #166 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Liberia is low compared to the rest of the world.
You can see a more detailed picture of GDP and economic growth in Liberia 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 overview of monetary data points in Liberia in the table below:
The business environment risk in Liberia
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Liberia is very high (6 out of 6), which is a high risk score in Africa.
Economic freedom and rights has a big influence on the business environment risk in a country. You can see the critical facts for Liberia in the table below:
As you can see above, the property rights index is 30 in Liberia, which is considered low in Africa.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 49 in Liberia, a quite average score for a country in Africa.
Liberia's overall economic freedom index is 49 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Liberia
The political risk in Liberia 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 Liberia can be seen in the data 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 trading with businesses in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Liberia, the rule of law index is at -0,93 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Liberia 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 very large shadow economy that is 43,67% of Liberia's GDP.
The commercial risk in Liberia
In Liberia, 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 Africa.
The financing risk in Liberia
We have calculated the financing risk to be 4/4, which equals a high risk. A high financing risk score is relatively high for countries in Africa.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. Additional facts and info can be found for Liberia in the table below:
In Liberia, the credit information sharing index is 0 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). This means the accessibility and quality of credit information available in Liberia is very low.
This makes it very difficult for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Liberia. Unless you have a strong relationship with your customers in Liberia, we highly recommend charging payment upfront or using credit insurance.
Your juridical rights as a creditor are 10 out of 12 and, therefore, very strong.
