Invoices from UZ Leuven are payable immediately.
If payment is not made immediately, then after the first reminder interest on arrears will be due at the statutory interest rate. If a first reminder is sent by the hospital, additional administrative costs of EUR 5 are due. If payment is not made, the dossier will be passed immediately on for collection. If formal notice of default has to be sent by recorded delivery via a process server, or legal proceedings prove necessary to obtain payment, a flat-rate penalty of 10% of the amount of the invoice will also be charged, with a minimum of EUR 40. In the event of legal proceedings the courts of Leuven have sole jurisdiction in application of Article 624, 2° of the Belgian Judicial Code.
