Introduction to collecting debt in Seychelles
Do you have a lot of debt in Seychelles? Do not worry; we can help you get paid by your Seychellois customers.
When someone owes a debt in Seychelles, the person who owes the debt is called "the debtor." The person who gave the debt or invoice is called "the creditor."
If the original creditor collects the debt himself, this is called “first-party collection”.
If the creditor gives the responsibility of collecting the debt to someone else, this is called “third-party collections”.
The debt collection process in Seychelles
The debt collection process in Seychelles usually happens in more than one step. The picture below explains our standard way of collecting debt in Seychelles:
1 Upload your claim:
If you want someone to help you get your money back, you will need to find a debt collection partner. This is a person or company who helps people get money that they are owed. You can upload your claim onto their website. Debitura is a website that can help you find a debt collection partner in Africa. We will give you 3 quotes from local partners - and it is free.
2 Amicable collection:
The collection process 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 people communicate in that country. The goal is to get the debtor to pay the debt or at least start a payment plan. Debitura offers a no-cure-no-pay solution for amicable collection. Amicable collections means that both sides are friendly during the process. With Debitura, you only pay a success fee if we recover your debt. So there is no risk for you!
If the person you are owed money from 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 you owe someone less than $2,000 to $5,000, it is not worth it to spend more money to sue them. In this case, we recommend "debt surveillance." This means that we will keep trying to talk to the person you owe money to and try to reach an agreement where they pay you back some of the money.
B: Legal collections:
For larger claims, we recommend starting a legal process. The kind of process you need to do depends on the type and size of your claim. In most cases, the process will take 12-18 months.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you are claiming money from has acknowledged your claim or if you have a court order, you can go to the bailiff's court to get your money.

The analysis is concluding that the risk of running a business in Seychelles 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 Seychelles 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 Seychelles
Economic risk in Seychelles 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 Seychelles is 1,32 bn. USD (2021), growing by 1,85% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Seychelles ranks #168 out of 183 countries and has a small economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #144 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a slow-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 13307 USD, ranking Seychelles number #55 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Seychelles is high compared to the rest of the world.
You get a more detailed idea of GDP and economic growth in Seychelles in the table below:
Another significant influencer for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You get a more detailed idea of monetary KPIs in Seychelles in the table below:
Looking at the interest rate for businesses, it is 9,16%.
The business environment risk in Seychelles
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Seychelles is medium (3 out of 6), which is a low risk score in Africa.
The business environment risk are determined by the level of economic freedom and rights in a country. Take a look at the important facts for Seychelles in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 65 in Seychelles, which is considered quite good in Africa.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 68 in Seychelles, a pretty good score for a country in Africa.
Seychelles's overall economic freedom index is 66 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Seychelles
The political risk in Seychelles 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 important drivers for political risk. An overview of Seychelles 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 Seychelles, the rule of law index is at 0,34 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Seychelles has, therefore, a medium rule of law index, which means it should be possible to enforce your contracts. If possible, we still recommend charging payment upfront or working with credit insurance for larger deals.
The commercial risk in Seychelles
In Seychelles, 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 commercial risk is impacted by a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Seychelles in the table below:
Seychelles has a foreign exchange reserve of 0.7 bn. USD.
Seychelles has a negative trade balance of -25,33% of GDP. The meaning of this is that Seychelles imports more goods and services than the country exports.
The financing risk in Seychelles
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 Africa.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the critical facts for Seychelles in the table below:
In Seychelles, the credit information sharing index is 5 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The result of this, is that the access and trustworthiness of the credit information in Seychelles is medium.
This makes it not that easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Seychelles. 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 9,16%.
