Before we go into the heart of this guide and see how to know if you have protested for free, my golden seed fornirti alcune preliminary information that will certainly be useful for you to have a clearer idea about what to do.
First of all, I want to broaden what has already been said in the introduction of the article on the concepts of "protest" and "protested". As already mentioned a few lines above, the "protest" is the formal act with which the public official certifies the non-payment of a debt against a creditor. For "Protested", instead, we mean the subject who has not been able to honor the payment of a debt in the form of a credit note.
A person who is protested and who, therefore, has undergone the act of protest by a creditor for non-payment of a debt owed to him, is registered in a register of protests, which anyone can freely consult at the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Crafts and Agriculture of territorial jurisdiction (and I will soon explain how).
Wondering what is the process that leads to registration in the register of protests? The creditor, once the protest procedure has been completed, asks theBailiff to ascertain non-payment or non-acceptance of payment. Subsequently, there is the publication of the debtor's name in theOfficial List of Protests, which generally occurs within ten days from the transmission of the public deed to President of the Chamber of Commerce.
As I told you, anyone can consult the register containing the names of the protested subjects: just make a request to the local Chamber of Commerce. I would like to tell you, however, that the operation is not free (even if it has very low costs). At the time of writing, to search for protests at the Chamber of Commerce, it is necessary pay a fee of 0,20 euros. Let me tell you in more detail how to get the job done.
Contact the Chamber of Commerce
As I told you, to find out if you have protested, you have to contact the Chamber of Commerce, so as to consult the register of protests. You can do this by using the online service Telemachus to which it is possible to register for free (you pay only in case of effective consultation of the public directories), available directly on the website of the Chamber of Commerce.
