Introduction to collecting debt in Qatar
Are you having trouble getting money that people owe you in Qatar? Don't worry, we can help make it easier for you to get paid by the people in Qatar who owe you money. In Qatar, the person who owes money is called "the debtor" and the person who gave them the money or invoice is called "the creditor." If the person who gave them the money collects it themselves, it's called "first-party collection." If they hire someone else to collect it for them, it's called "third-party collection."
The debt collection process in Qatar
In Qatar, when someone owes money, there are several steps that need to be taken in order to collect it. These steps are usually done in a specific order, and they are called the "debt collection process."
The picture below shows what this process looks like.
1 Upload your claim:
If you don't want to try to get your money back on your own, the first step is to find a company that can help you collect the debt. This company is called a "debt collection partner." One option for finding a debt collection partner is to use a website called Debitura. If you use this website, they will give you three options for companies that can help you in the Asia country where the debt is from. And the best part? This service is completely free and has no hidden fees or obligations.
2 Amicable collection:
When trying to collect a debt, the first step is usually to send friendly reminders to the person who owes the money. These reminders can be sent through different ways like email, text message, letter, and other ways that are commonly used in that specific country. The goal is to get the person to either pay the debt or at least acknowledge that they owe the money and make a plan to pay it back. Debitura offers a service where you only have to pay a small fee if they are successful in collecting the debt. This means that there is no risk for you if you use Debitura's amicable collection service.
If the person you are trying to collect money from has not paid you yet, even after trying to work things out nicely, it's time to figure out what to do next. We will consider how much money you are trying to get, how likely it is that you will get paid, and other important information to help you make the best choice. There are three common options for what to do next:
If the amount of money you are trying to get back from someone is less than 2,000-5,000 euros, it may not be worth it to go through a lot of legal procedures to get it back. In this situation, we suggest using "debt surveillance." This means that we will keep contacting the person you owe the money to and try to come to a friendly agreement to pay it back.
B: Legal collections:
We suggest that if you have a big claim, you should start a legal process. The way the process goes will depend on the kind and amount of your claim. Usually, it will take around one to one and a half years to finish.
C: Debt enforcement:
If you have proof that the person you are trying to collect money from (the debtor) has agreed that they owe you the money, or if a judge has ordered them to pay you, you can ask a special court (called the bailiff's court) to help you collect the money.
At Debitura, we can help you with every part of the process in Qatar. This means that we can guide you through all the necessary steps and make sure everything is done correctly.
Amicable collection in Qatar
At Debitura, we provide a way for you to get your money back that is completely safe and works quickly. All you have to do is tell us what you are owed and we will start working on it within one day.
We will contact the person who owes you money through various methods, such as email, text message, mail, phone calls, and social media, to make sure we can reach them in Qatar.
This process helps to:
A) Make the person who owes money pay back the entire amount
B) When someone owes money, it's important to get them to admit that they owe the debt and start making payments
If the person who owes you money disagrees with your claim, you cannot try to settle the issue peacefully. Instead, you must take legal action to collect the debt.

Legal collection in Qatar
If the person you are trying to get money from (your debtor) hasn't paid you during the friendly phase or they disagree with your claim, we will give you three options from our local lawyers who specialize in getting money from people who owe it.

Insolvency proceedings in Qatar
If the person you loaned money to cannot pay you back, the last option is to start a process called insolvency. The purpose of this process is to sell the person's belongings and give the money to the people they owe, following a set order of who gets paid first.
Our analysis has shown that the risk of conducting business in Qatar is medium-low. Based on this medium-low 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 Qatar well. If possible, provide a short credit period or even better upfront payment. The medium-low risk score is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Qatar
Our conclusion based on the economic risk factors, is that the economic risk in Qatar is medium (3 out of 6). An economic risk of 3 out of 6 is low in Asia.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Qatar is 179,57 bn. USD (2021), growing by 1,52% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Qatar ranks #55 out of 183 countries and has a medium-sized economy.
Looking at the growth rate, it is ranked #149 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a slow-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 61276 USD, ranking Qatar number #10 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Qatar is high compared to the rest of the world.
You can see a more detailed picture of GDP and economic growth in Qatar in the table below:
Another huge impact 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 Qatar in the table below:
The inflation in Qatar was 2,3% in 2021 which is considered a low inflation rate.
Businesses has an interest rate which is 3,85%.
The business environment risk in Qatar
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Qatar is low (2 out of 6), which is a low risk score in Asia.
Economic freedom and rights determine the business environment risk in a country. You can see the critical facts for Qatar in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 68 in Qatar, which is considered pretty average in Asia.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 74 in Qatar, a quite average score for a country in Asia.
Qatar's overall economic freedom index is 72 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Qatar
The political risk in Qatar is medium-high, with a score of 4/6. This is a pretty average political risk score in Asia.
The governance and political stability indicators are vital drivers for political risk. An overview of Qatar 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 Qatar, the rule of law index is at 0,93 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Qatar has, therefore, a very high rule of law index, which means you have a very good chance of enforcing your contracts. If your individual customers have good creditworthiness, you should therefore feel relatively safe when providing credit.
Other drivers for the medium-high political risks are the average control of corruption, the average political stability index, and the normal shadow economy that is 13,08% of Qatar's GDP.
The commercial risk in Qatar
In Qatar, the commercial risk score is 3/4, which in our model is a medium score. This medium commercial risk score is relatively high 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 Qatar in the table below:
Qatar has a foreign exchange reserve of 42.21 bn. USD.
The financing risk in Qatar
We have calculated the financing risk to be 1/4, which equals a very low risk. A very low financing risk score is low for countries in Asia.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the extra information for Qatar in the table below:
In Qatar, the credit information sharing index is 8 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). This means the accessibility and quality of credit information available in Qatar is high.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Qatar. Based on this, it should be possible to 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 1 out of 12 and, therefore, very weak.
The very low financing risk for creditors also impacts the medium interest rate in the private sector of 3,85%.
