Fees

What fees EuroClaim charges you?

We charge you two types of fees. First is a court fee that is to be paid directly to the court. Second is our service fee paid only if your claim will be satisfied.

When, where and how much do you have to pay court fees?

You pay a court fee not for EuroClaim, but directly to the respective court where the claim will be brought. If a case is won, the court fee will be compensated by the losing party.

Court fees vary depending from the country and on the nature of the claim. We will estimate the payable court fee before before filling your claim.

What is EuroClaim service fee?

You only pay the service fee if we win the case. If we will not recover your money you pay us EUR 0.

Total amount of EuroClaim service fee depends from the claim amount. However, we let you know a service fee before starting to take any legal actions.

Also, it’s worth to stress that if the claim is satisfied by the court, the client recovers all amount he is owed by the debtor and the latter must also cover the EuroClaim service fee.

Claim details:
