In Canada we have small claims court. up to 10,1000$ and it only costs you 50$ to file a claim. They have to file a defense or settle within 30 days. Usally if they owe you the money it forces them to do something, either settle or *really* drag it out, but it gets the process moving.

I wouldn't know about your country, whichever that may be, but in the
Netherlands it only takes two unpaid creditors to request bankruptcy
for a company with a judge. Bankruptcy is declared when a company no
longer pays its dues (note that "ability" doesn't come into this), and two outstanding debts are the minimum required to establish that.

If all else fails, that kind of procedure gives a very strong incentive
to pay up. Your country may have a similar arrangement.
