Introduction to collecting debt in Vietnam
Are you having trouble getting paid by your customers in Vietnam? Don't fret, we can make it simple for you. The person who owes the debt is called the debtor and the person who sent the invoice is called the creditor. If the creditor collects the debt themselves, it's called first-party collection. But, if the creditor hires someone else to collect the debt, it's called third-party collections.
The debt collection process in Vietnam
The way we go about getting money back from people who owe it in Vietnam usually involves multiple stages. The picture shows the usual steps we take in this situation.
1 Upload your claim:
If you don't want to handle collecting your debt on your own, the first step is to find a company that specializes in debt collection. One option is to use a service like Debitura, which will give you three options for local companies in the Asian country where your debt is located. And the best part? It's completely free and there are 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 email, text message, mail, or any other way that is available in the debtor's country. The goal is to get the debtor to either pay the debt or agree to start a plan to pay it back. Debitura offers a service where you only pay a fee if the debt is successfully collected, so there is no risk for you.
If the person you are trying to get money from hasn't paid you back yet, even after trying to work things out peacefully, it's time to think about what to do next. We'll examine how much you're owed, the chance of getting paid, and other important details to help you decide what the best course of action is. Typically, there are three options to choose from.
If the amount of money you are claiming is less than $2,000 to $5,000, it is not worth it to continue with legal action. In this situation, we suggest using "debt surveillance", where we will continuously contact the person who owes you money and try to come to a friendly agreement to pay it back.
B: Legal collections:
It's a good idea to begin a legal procedure for bigger demands. The specific procedure varies depending on the category and magnitude of your demand. Generally, the procedure is supposed to last for one year to one and a half years.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you are trying to collect money from has agreed that you are owed it, or if a judge has ruled in your favor, you can ask a court officer called a bailiff to help you get the money.
Amicable collection in Vietnam
At Debitura, we provide a safe and effective way for you to collect money that is owed to you. All you have to do is send us your request, and we will begin working on it within 24 hours.
We will contact the person who owes you money through various methods in Vietnam, such as email, text messages, letters, phone calls, and social media.
Our goal is to either:
A) get the debtor to pay the entire amount or
B) to get them to agree to a payment plan.
However, if the debtor disagrees with your request, we will not be able to resolve it amicably and will have to move on to legal action.

The analysis is concluding that the risk of conducting business in Vietnam 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 Vietnam 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 Vietnam
Economic risk in Vietnam 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 Vietnam is 362,64 bn. USD (2021), growing by 2,59% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Vietnam ranks #40 out of 183 countries and has a large economy.
Looking at the growth rate, it is ranked #134 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a slow-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 3694 USD, ranking Vietnam number #113 out of 183 countries. The result of this is purchasing power of citizens in Vietnam is pretty average compared to all the countries in the world.
You can see a more detailed picture of GDP and economic growth in Vietnam 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 picture of monetary KPIs in Vietnam in the table below:
The inflation in Vietnam was 1,8% in 2021 which is considered a very low inflation rate.
The interest rate for businesses is 7,81%.
The business environment risk in Vietnam
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Vietnam 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. You can see the critical facts for Vietnam in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 51 in Vietnam, 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 65 in Vietnam, a quite low score for a country in Asia.
Vietnam's overall economic freedom index is 62 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Vietnam
The political risk in Vietnam 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 critical drivers for political risk. An overview of Vietnam can be seen in the graphs 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 Vietnam, the rule of law index is at -0,15 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Vietnam 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 medium-high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the weak political stability index, and the normal shadow economy that is 14,78% of Vietnam's GDP.
The commercial risk in Vietnam
In Vietnam, the commercial risk score is 1/4, which in our model is a very low score. This very low commercial risk score is low compared to the average in Asia.
The commercial risk is relying on a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Vietnam in the table below:
Vietnam has a foreign exchange reserve of 109.37 bn. USD.
The financing risk in Vietnam
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 Vietnam in the table below:
In Vietnam, the credit information sharing index is 8 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The result of this is accessibility and quality of credit information available in Vietnam is high.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Vietnam. You should therefore be able to find a good local credit rating agency that can help you analyse the creditworthiness of your specific customers.
Your juridical rights as a creditor are 8 out of 12 and, therefore, medium.
The medium financing risk for creditors also impacts the high interest rate in the private sector of 7,81%.
Debt Collection in Vietnam: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
If you're having trouble getting paid by your customers in Vietnam, you can hire a company that specializes in debt collection. The process can involve friendly reminders to the debtor to pay the debt or agree to a payment plan.

Initially, friendly reminders are sent to the debtor to pay back the money. If that doesn't work, a debt collection company will evaluate the situation and suggest either surveillance or legal action. For larger debts, legal action is recommended, which can take up to one and a half years. If the debt is legally proven and unpaid, debt enforcement can be initiated through a court officer called a bailiff.

The timeframe can also be impacted by various factors related to the debtor's financial situation and willingness to cooperate.
