When does the new procedure apply?

The procedure can be applied to undisputed financial debts of professionals, whereby both the creditor and the debtor must be registered with the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises (CBE). The claim must concern a sum of money that is certain, fixed and payable at the start of the proceedings. There is no limit to the amount claimed.

What if your claim is nevertheless disputed?

If a customer disputes your claim (in barely 2% of the cases), you can still obtain your money through a classic procedure in court. The costs already incurred are included in the summons. During the hearing, your customer can submit his dispute, after which the judge gives his verdict. In order to actually collect your invoice, you have this judgment served by a judicial officer.
