Introduction to collecting debt in Maldives
Do you have a hard time collecting debt from your Maldivian customers? Do not worry; we can help you get paid easily.
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 back themselves, this is called first-party collection. If they ask someone else to help them get the money back, this is called third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Maldives
The debt collection process in Maldives usually happens in a few steps. The picture below shows the standard way to collect debt in the Maldives:
1 Upload your claim:
If you want someone to help you get your money back, you will start by finding a debt collection partner. This is a person or company who helps people get money that they are owed. You will give them some information about the money you are owed, and then they will try to get the money for you. If you use Debitura, we will give you 3 quotes from local partners in the Asian country where the person who owes you money lives. This service is free - which means that there is no cost for using it and no hidden fees.
2 Amicable collection:
The collection process usually starts with sending reminders to the person who owes you money. This is called a campaign. The reminders go through email, SMS, letter, and other ways to contact the person in the specific country. The goal is to get the debtor to pay or agree that they owe the debt, and then start a plan to pay it back. 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 the person you loaned money to has not paid you back after you have talked to them, it is time to decide what to do next. We will look at how much money you are owed, the chance of getting paid back, and other factors to help you decide what to do. There are three typical next steps:
If your claim is less than 2,000-5,000 euros, it is often not worth it to take more legal action. In this case, we recommend "debt surveillance." This means that we will keep trying to contact your debtor and try to reach an agreement.
B: Legal collections:
If you have a lot of money that you are claiming, we recommend starting a legal process. The way to do this depends on what country you are in and how much money you are claiming. If you are claiming less than 5,000€, most countries in Europe have a simpler way to do this. We work with local people who can help you get the money that is owed to you in all European countries. They can give you a personalized plan and tell you how much it will cost depending on your specific case.
C: Debt enforcement:
If someone owes you money and they said they would pay you back, or if you have a court order, you can go to the bailiff's court to make them pay you.
At Debitura, we can help you with all three steps in Maldives.

Our analysis concludes that the risk of doing business in Maldives 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 Maldives well. If possible, provide a short credit period or even better upfront payment. The medium risk analysis is based on the going through these risk factors:
The economic risk in Maldives
Our conclusion based on the economic risk factors, is that the economic risk in Maldives 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 Maldives is 4,89 bn. USD (2021), growing by 30,96% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Maldives ranks #150 out of 183 countries and has a small economy.
Having a view at the growth rate, it is ranked #2 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a fast-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 8995 USD, ranking Maldives number #70 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Maldives is average compared to the rest of the world.
You can see a more throughout picture of GDP and economic growth in Maldives 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 throughout picture of monetary KPIs in Maldives in the table below:
The inflation in Maldives was 0,5% in 2021 which is considered a very low inflation rate.
The interest rate for businesses is 11,56%.
The business environment risk in Maldives
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Maldives 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. The critical facts for Maldives in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 44 in Maldives, which is considered 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 78 in Maldives, a pretty good score for a country in Asia.
Maldives's overall economic freedom index is 55 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Maldives
The political risk in Maldives 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 Maldives 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 transacting business in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Maldives, the rule of law index is at -0,17 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Maldives 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 weak political stability index, and the medium-large shadow economy that is 20,65% of Maldives's GDP.
The commercial risk in Maldives
In Maldives, 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 Maldives in the table below:
Maldives has a foreign exchange reserve of 0.81 bn. USD.
The financing risk in Maldives
We have calculated the financing risk to be 3/4, which equals a medium risk. A medium financing risk score is pretty average for countries in Asia.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the critical facts for Maldives in the table below:
In Maldives, the credit information sharing index is 5 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 Maldives is medium.
This makes it not that easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Maldives. Unless you have found a good source for credit ratings or know your specific customers well, we suggest charging payment upfront or using credit insurance.
Your legal rights as a creditor (and as a borrower) are 2 out of 12 and, therefore, very weak.
The medium financing risk for creditors also impacts the high interest rate in the private sector of 11,56%.
