The Financial Supervision Office (BFT), the supervisor of bailiffs, is critical of Minister Sander Dekker’s plan (Legal Protection, VVD) to increase the rates of bailiffs. This has been shown by research of a television program Cash desk, which devoted a broadcast to the subject on Saturday evening. Interest groups are also criticizing the increase because it could cause debtors to get into further trouble.
The increase is based on the report of the Oskam committee. According to the BFT, that report provides ‘insufficient substantiation’ to increase the tariffs. A year ago, BFT advised the Ministry of Justice and Security to conduct additional research into the level of fees, reports Cash desk. The Dutch Association of Certified Collection Companies is also of the opinion that the Oskam report is not suitable on which to base the increase.
The ministry wants to increase the rates on January 1 so that bailiffs receive reasonable compensation. The cabinet has adopted the advice of the Oskam Committee one-on-one. On Saturday, the ministry was not able to directly respond to the criticism of BFT. According to the Royal Professional Organization of Bailiffs, the rate increase is necessary because bailiffs can then do their work more independently.
The National Organization of Social Counselors (LOSR) and the Dutch Association for People’s Credit (NVVK) argue that due to the corona crisis, more debt questions are expected and people could become even deeper in debt due to the rising rates. From research of Cash desk it appears that the rates will increase by an average of 16 percent. In particular, the most common costs, such as the issuing of a judgment and summons, are increasing.
