Evaluation of the administrative debt regulation of the General Administrative Law Act

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This report is the result of a broad study on the functioning of the administrative debt regulation of the Dutch Algemene wet Bestuursrecht (General Administrative Law Act, GALA). This regulation is included in title 4.4 of the GALA which entered into force on July 1, 2009 as part of the Fourth instalment of the GALA.
Title 4.4 GALA contains general rules on monetary debts based on administrative law. These include rules for the establishment of the obligation to pay a sum of money, on the consequences of failing to meet that obligation, on the payment of debts and the possible collection thereof. The general rules of title 4.4 GALA largely apply to both monetary debts of citizens to government (e.g. taxes, fines and forfeited non-compliance penalties) and for debts of the government to citizens (such as awarded benefits and subsidies).
