Continuation of enforced collection

If the debtor fails to file an objection against the default summons, or the objection has been set aside, the creditor can apply for the continuation of the enforced collection procedure at the Debt Enforcement Office after a grace period of 20 days.

  • If the debtor is registered in the commercial register in Switzerland, the Debt Enforcement Office issues an order with which the debtor is subjected to bankruptcy proceedings. For more information see www.bankruptcy.ch.
  • If the debtor is not registered in the commercial register in Switzerland, the Debt Enforcement Office issues a notice of impending seizure (enforcement proceedings leading to seizure of assets).
