On Tuesday, 6 November 2012, the European Commission Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry hosted an information seminar in the Hague at the European Commission Representation in the Netherlands on the issue of late payment and the application of a new European directive to tackle the problem. This seminar was the second to be held as part of a new Late Payment Information Campaign.
This directive is an important legal development for businesses, particularly SMEs, and public authorities in the Netherlands and across the EU. It puts in place strict time-lines and tough penalties for payment between businesses, and between businesses and public authorities.
The seminar provided participants with an opportunity to learn more about the problem of late payment and the new measures being put in place to address the issue.
It included presentations from Mr. Andy KLOM, Head of the European Commission Representation in the Netherlands; Mr. Rinke ZONNEVELD, Director of Entrepreneurship, Minister of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation; Mr. Rob WOLTHUIS, Advisor on Entrepreneurship & Finance MKB Netherlands; Ms. Idaira ROBAYNA-ALFONSO, European Commission, Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry; Ms. Jeannine DE LA BURSI, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation; Mr. Erik HESSELING & Ms. Gabrielle KUHN, Enterprise Europe Network; and Mr. Edwin PREVOO, Managing Director, Intrum Justitia The Netherlands.
This campaign is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and is part of the European Commission’s ongoing commitment to promoting economic growth and European business.
