Harbour dues

For all invoices with an invoice date from January 1 2021 until June 31 2021, an extension of the payment term of 14 days after the invoice date applies. No interest and/or additional costs will be charged for this extension. Your current payment method remains the same. You do not have to do anything for this.

The payment term is automatically adjusted in our systems. If you make use of direct debit, the new payment term will be stated on the invoice in days. If you do not have a direct debit, you can add 14 days to the term stated.

Corona payment arrangements sea shipping

Information on payment arrangements

Can I qualify for a discount or remission of my invoice?

No, we do not apply a corona discount or remission. The regular rates and discounts apply.

Until when does this arrangement apply?

The extended payment arrangement for the seaport dues applies to invoices with an invoice date up to June 30 2021.

Do I have to apply for the payment arrangement for seaport dues?

No, you don’t have to do anything.

When do I qualify for a deferred payment?

Every entrepreneur who has to pay a seaport dues invoice with an invoice date between January 1 2021 and June 31 2021 is eligible for the longer payment term. Insofar as the invoice has not yet been paid or collected.

I do not pay seaport dues by direct debit. However, my invoice now states a payment term of 14 days and not the promised 28 days. How about that?

Invoices that are not paid by direct debit require a system change to automatically set the Corona payment term to 28 days. Unfortunately, this system change cannot be realised in the short term. That is why the invoice still automatically states 14 days as the payment term.

In practice, we also use the 28-day payment term for invoices that are not paid by direct debit. You will therefore not receive any reminders after the original payment term of 14 days has expired.

Will the declaration period be extended as well?

No. The declaration period is and remains no later than 10 days after departure of the ship.

I pay my invoices by direct debit. Does the longer term also apply to me?

Yes. The term is also extended by 14 days for invoices collected by Port of Amsterdam by direct debit. You do not have to do anything.

Every entrepreneur who has to pay an inland harbour dues invoice with an invoice date between January 1 2021 and June 31 2021 is eligible for the longer payment term.

I don't pay harbour dues by direct debit. On my invoice there is now a payment period of 14 days and not the promised 60 days. How about that?

For invoices that are not paid by direct debit, a system modification is required to automatically set the Corona payment arrangement to 60 days. Unfortunately, this system change cannot be realised in the short term. That is why the invoice still automatically states 14 days as the payment term.

In practice, we also uses the 60-day payment term for invoices that are not paid by direct debit. You will therefore not receive any reminders after the original payment term has expired (14 days).

Will the declaration period be extended as well?

I pay my invoices by direct debit. Does the longer term also apply to me?

Yes. The payment period for invoices collected by direct debit by Port of Amsterdam is also extended to 60 days.
