Single Online Receivables Management System (EOKR)Via the service provider, the debtors can be reported in order to be registered in the receivables record-keeping system.
To the debtor reported by the creditor, OPTEN Ltd. sends a payment notice with the indication of the fact that even the largest commercial banks use the system, and therefore their presence in the records can be regarded as a considerable disadvantage for the debtor company when banking arrangements are made. In the light of our experience in recent years, 20–30 percent of the debtors rather settles the debt in order to avoid becoming entered in EOKR.
Furthermore, the system performs monitoring services wherein a warning e-mail is sent to the user having reported the outstanding receivables in case any official change occurs in the company registration data of the debtor business entity in question. Besides, the user is advised if any negative information is entered in the system by a third party in relation to the debtor company.
EOKR stamp: with the application of the stamp forming a part of the EOKR service (charged separately), users may call their customers' attention to the threat that in the event of non-payment they can be entered in the Single Online Receivables Management System. This stamp can be affixed to the issued invoices, payment notices or their envelopes. The use of the stamp prompts customers to pay in due time.
Company Control ServiceThe basis of this service is a database built from various sources, and it gathers and makes all the negative/positive information that is officially accessible in relation to the queried company. The user can launch queries in connection with any business entity to see whether there are any receivables or insolvency proceedings in progress against them.
Debtor lists cannot be created, only individual queries can be performed. Currently, the database shows some negative and positive information for approximately 436,000 companies.
The system presents the reported receivables in four categories:
Outstanding receivables (negative information)
- Overdue debts acknowledged by the debtor business entity in the form of fully conclusive private deeds.
- Receivables effectively judged by the arbitration panel to be due from the debtor business entity (including receivables covered by prompt notice procedures).
- Amount of the receivables that is specified by the creditor's petition to the court of justice in the framework of the liquidation proceedings effectively that have been ordered by the court of justice upon creditor's request against the debtor business entity.
- Liquidation proceedings
- Mandatory dissolution proceedings
- Voluntary dissolution proceedings
- Ex officio cancellation proceedings
- Overdue accounts receivables reported by the client

Those enterprises are included in the list that hold customs authority permits, have confirmed their solvency, and observe the relevant safety requirements. If a member state issues such a certificate, it is recognized by the other member states, which will considerably simplify the issuance of permits needed for the activities in another member state).
Company name, registered address, company registration number or tax number, date of the invoice and due date of payment (date of publication in proceedings), as well as the date of becoming entered in the database and the gross amounts of the individual receivables.
