Frequently Asked Questions

When do I qualify for a deferred payment?

Every entrepreneur who has to pay a seaport dues invoice with an invoice date between 16th of March 2020 and 1st of June 2020 is eligible for the longer payment term. Insofar as the invoice has not yet been paid or collected.

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

No, you don’t have to do anything.

Does the deferred payment term also apply to invoices from before 16th of March 2020? 

No. For invoices with an invoice date prior to 16th of March 2020, the regular payment term applies. 

Until when does this regulation apply? 

The extended payment arrangement for the seaport dues applies to invoices with an invoice date up to 1 th of June 2020. In May 2020, Port of Amsterdam will examine whether the period in which the extended payment term applies, should be extended or not.

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

No. Port of Amsterdam does not apply a Corona discount or remission. The regular rates and discounts apply.

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.

I have already paid my invoice. Can I get it back?

No. Invoices that have already been paid or collected fall outside this regulation.

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 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, PoA also uses 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.
innerseaport

Inner Sea port

For all invoices with an invoice date from 16th of March 2020 until the 1st of June 2020, an extension of the payment term to 60 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. 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. Do you not pay by direct debit? In that case, the payment term is 60 days after the invoice date.
