Allianz Trade just posted 3The tenth A recovery complexity index that measures how difficult it is to recover outstanding payments for a company in a particular country.
This indicator is a decision-making tool for exporters, particularly in relation to target markets, in the context of a strong recovery in business failures on a global scale (10% in 2022 and 14% in 2023). It covers 49 countries that account for 90% of global GDP and 85% of international trade flows.
Concretely, this index is synthesized by a score ranging from 0 (the least complex overlap) to 100 (the most complex overlap). This result combines the judgment of Allianz Trade’s collectors on more than 40 indicators of domestic payment practices, applicable domestic legal procedures, and applicable domestic insolvency proceedings.
However, the operator-developed recovery complexity scale is divided into four levels, namely, marked complexity (score between 40 and 50), high (50 and 60), very high (50 and 60), and severe (greater than 60). Still according to Allianz Trade, refunding an unpaid invoice is (still) easier in Europe.
