The Belgian collections company has been assisting companies since 1981 and now has offices in northern France. After several years of working with its French partners from Belgium, the dynamic nature of the Lille metro area and the diversity of its industries encouraged the company to open an office here. Euro Fides provides its customers with financial solutions. The company’s French headquarters have been located in Villeneuve d’Ascq since this past October. Euro Fides is planning to further expand its presence in the Lille metro area in 2016.

In the news: Minister Macron changes approach and strengthens regulations

Last November 23, Emmanuel Macron, Minister of the Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs, presented the latest measures proposed by his ministry to battle “bad payers.” Two significant changes have been made:

  • Going forward, companies must report payment terms for both customers and vendors and reports must be signed by auditors.
  • Financial sanctions are no longer be capped at €375, 0000 and can now reach up to €2 million.
  • These changes are to encourage adherence to payment deadlines.


Didier Zovi, President of Euro Fides Solutions en Recouvrement says,

This is the correct approach and the government also has a stake here. These steps should noticeably and globally improve the situation of outstanding, overdue payments—a scourge in France and all of Europe.


In addition to fines that can reach exorbitant levels, non-paying companies’ reputations will also be at risk since their names may be listed on the Ministry of the Economy’s website, like bad students showing up on the classroom blackboard.
The same rules apply to everyone.
The ministry recognizes that the government itself may show up on the list of non-payers, but the rules must also apply to the government as well. And with good reason–by 2017, public entities must settle with their suppliers within 20 days, as opposed to the current 30 days.
