Payment arrangements

Improvement of the use of these payment arrangements (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In the Netherlands there is national social concern surrounding the issue of tackling debts. For the Dutch Cabinet, this widespread social concern is the reason to onstruct a ‘broad approach of tackling debts’ [Brede schuldenaanpak]. In their coalition agreement they state that the process of legal settlement of debts shall be improved. Meaning that creditors must first investigate all the possibilities of a payment arrangement before a case is brought to court.

The aim of this research is to delineate in what way businesses make use of payment arrangements and to explain how the use of these payment arrangements can be stimulated, before a case is brought to court. In order to achieve this aim, this study provides answers to the following central research question: In what way and to what extent do the different types of private creditors make (feasible) payment arrangements and what possibilities are there to improve the use of these payment arrangements?
