Collection service - permission

Service Description

If you wish to provide debt collection services on a business basis, you must register this activity in the Legal Services Register.

You can be registered if you are personally suitable and reliable for carrying out the activity and also have special expertise and can prove this accordingly. Important criteria for the required reliability are

  • previous criminal record (in particular any criminal offences) and
  • the economic circumstances.
Registration may be made subject to conditions or associated with requirements. Conditions can be imposed or changed at any time.

Legal services that are ancillary to another activity (e.g. collection of customer claims that have been assigned to a garage on account of performance) are not subject to authorization. Registration in the legal services register is not required for these services.
