Floods: tax aid measure for companies in payment difficulties

Author: Peggy Criel (Legal expert)

Due to the severe weather conditions that our country experienced in July, many individuals and companies are currently facing unexpected, significant expenses. Companies that were hit by the floods may find it difficult to pay their debts.

They can therefore apply with the FPS Finance for a payment plan as soon as they receive a payment request.

When a payment plan over 4 months is applied for, there are no formalities to complete.

If these payments are not sufficient and a payment plan over a longer period is applied for, the FPS Finance will take a decision after analysis of the specific situation. Via MyMinfin, companies can apply for a payment plan safely and easily.

In case of inability to pay, the FPS Finance will also give special attention to the persons concerned before initiating payment recovery measures.

The FPS Finance is currently cooperating with the Walloon and Flemish Regions to further analyse the data arising from this situation. Depending on the results, further measures may be taken. We will keep you informed should this be the case.
