E-mail in the event of customer bankruptcy
You will receive an email from SBB once we establish that a customer of yours has petitioned for bankruptcy or has been declared bankrupt in another way. We will also provide you with the details of the administrator and the deadline for submitting your claim to the court, so that you can quickly submit a declaration of the amount of unpaid invoices the customer still has outstanding.
Being informed in time has its advantages …
- You can submit your claim to the court in good time.
- You can recover the VAT on unpaid goods or services that you supplied to the customer concerned.
- You can deduct the outstanding claim(s) from your fiscal result.
