ICE – International Credit Exchange
Collecting international debt presents a unique set of challenges. Different jurisdictions, time zones, languages, currencies, cultures and regulatory regimes all make international collecting far more complicated than domestic. By far the best way to overcome these difficulties is to have a local presence.
CCI is a member of ICE (International Credit Exchange) – the world’s leading collections network. With over 90 partner offices and 2000 people, we deliver local expertise wherever you need it and have an unrivalled ability to trace, collect and litigate worldwide.
ICE is comprised exclusively of the largest and most highly regarded agencies and law firms who work to the highest compliance standards from a centralised IT platform. Every partner is carefully selected, ensuring that they represent the best solution in each country.
Partners are on-boarded using a three stage due diligence process to ensure they are fully compliant with the highest global standards. Thereafter there is a continuous programme of performance monitoring as well as remote and physical auditing.

International Collections – How We Work
CCI Credit Management is the largest international debt collection agency in the UK.
We’ve developed a flexible, multi-phase approach for international debt collection to secure the best results in every part of the world. Where possible, we collect from our award winning multi-lingual call centre in the UK. We also have the capacity to refer to an overseas partner to recover the debt locally and, if necessary, to issue legal proceedings.
We offer a full service capability. In addition to debt recovery we provide worldwide tracing and litigation services.
Our worldwide network of law firms – all of which specialise in international debt recovery – provides the ability to litigate in just about every jurisdiction. Constant performance monitoring and complete transparency ensure that all files receive expert and prompt attention in every part of the world.
All information is transferred and managed on a single IT platform. You simply log on and check the progress of your legal files anywhere in the world. As well as online account management our account managers are always on hand to provide real time updates ensuring you are always kept fully informed about all of your accounts.
Because we specialise we understand the importance of results. Every element of every process has been designed to secure the best possible outcome for you. Better still, pre-agreed prices and turnaround times make global litigation realistic and affordable.
Other International Services
Every country has its own unique databases and data protection laws, so a local presence is often essential for successful and lawful international tracing. Additionally, international trace results will require checking and validating, which is much more easily done locally than from the other side of the world.
Through the ICE global partner network, CCI is able to perform worldwide tracing efficiently, legally and compliantly. And local expertise maximises the likelihood of success.
International Credit Reports
CCI offers a wide variety of credit reports and financial investigations to our clients either as part of the collection process or as a stand-alone service. We have the systems in place to undertake the majority of the requests ourselves as well as a vast network of reliable and trusted contacts we can call upon if anything out of the ordinary is requested.

CCI Credit Management undertakes all pre-legal international collections on a no win no fee basis. Additionally, there are no advanced fees or set-up charges. You’re only charged once you’ve been paid.
International debt collection can be much more complex than domestic collections and every case must be assessed on its own merits. Commission rates are dependent on various factors including:
• Age of the debt
• Location of your customer
• Involvement of an overseas partner
If we can collect from our head office, we do. We also have the capacity to refer the case to an overseas partner. Commission rates will sometimes increase at this point but we would always discuss this with you before proceeding.
Services such as legal action or tracing are classed as additional services and charges may apply. However you are always advised in advance and we never proceed with any additional services without your prior agreement.
