Introduction to collecting debt in Nepal
Do you have a hard time getting people to pay you back in Nepal? Do not worry; we can help you get paid by your Nepalese customers easily.
The person who owes the debt is called the debtor. The person who issued the debt is called the creditor. If the creditor collects the debt, it is called first-party collection. If someone else collects the debt for the creditor, it is called third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Nepal
In Nepal, debt collection is usually done in several steps. The picture below shows the standard process for collecting debt in Nepal:
1 Upload your claim:
Unless you want to get your money back yourself, find a debt collection partner. This is a person or company who helps people get money that they are owed. You will give them information about the money you are owed, 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 Asian country where the person owes you money. This service is free - you do not have to pay us anything.
2 Amicable collection:
Debitura will try to contact the person who owes you money in different ways, like email, text, or letter. We will keep trying until that person either pays you or starts a plan to pay you back. You only have to pay us a small amount if we are successful. So there is no risk for you!
If you have not received payment from the debtor after the amicable phase, it is time to look at other options. We will look at how much money you are owed, the chance of getting paid and other factors to help you decide what to do next. There are three typical next steps:
If you owe someone less than 2.000-5000€, it is often not worth it to take legal action. In this case, we recommend that you keep trying to talk to the person you owe money to and try to come up with an agreement.
B: Legal collections:
We suggest that you begin a legal process if you have a big claim. The way it is done will vary based on what you are claiming and how big it is. Usually, it takes around 1 to 1 and a half years to finish the process.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you are owed 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 Nepal.

Our analysis concludes that the risk of doing business in Nepal is medium-high. Based on this medium-high score, we recommend always charging upfront payment or using credit insurance when trading with customers in Nepal, as it may be very difficult to get paid. The medium-high risk score is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Nepal
Our conclusion based on the economic risk factors, is that the economic risk in Nepal 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 Nepal is 36,29 bn. USD (2021), growing by 4,25% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Nepal ranks #93 out of 183 countries and has a medium-sized economy.
Looking at the growth rate, it is ranked #96 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered an excellent growing economy.
GDP per capita is 1223 USD, ranking Nepal number #148 out of 183 countries. The result of this is purchasing power of citizens in Nepal is low compared to the rest of the world.
You can see a more throughout picture of GDP and economic growth in Nepal 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 Nepal in the table below:
The inflation in Nepal was 4,1% in 2021 which is considered a medium inflation rate.
The business environment risk in Nepal
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Nepal is high (5 out of 6), which is a high risk score in Asia.
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. You can see the critical facts for Nepal in the table below:
In the above table, you can see, the property rights index is 38 in Nepal, 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 62 in Nepal, a quite low score for a country in Asia.
Nepal's overall economic freedom index is 51 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Nepal
The political risk in Nepal is very high, with a score of 6/6. This is a high political risk score in Asia.
The governance and political stability indicators are critical drivers for political risk. An overview of Nepal 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 transacting business in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Nepal, the rule of law index is at -0,47 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Nepal 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 high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the very weak political stability index, and the large shadow economy that is 30,22% of Nepal's GDP.
The commercial risk in Nepal
In Nepal, 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 influenced by a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Nepal in the table below:
Nepal has a foreign exchange reserve of 9.66 bn. USD.
Nepal has a negative trade balance of -33,39% of GDP. This means that Nepal imports more goods and services than the country exports.
The annual growth of exports of goods and services has been growing -21,08% annually - now 5,21% of GDP. Import of goods and services represents 38,6% of the GDP in Nepal.
The financing risk in Nepal
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. Additional facts and info can be found for Nepal in the table below:
In Nepal, the credit information sharing index is 5 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The result of this is accessibility and quality of credit information available in Nepal is medium.
This makes it not that easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Nepal. 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 rights as a creditor are 10 out of 12 and, therefore, very strong.
