Payment reminder

Is your payment for water authority tax late? Then you will receive a payment reminder. This is called 'aanmaning' in Dutch. You will also be charged a late fee of 8 euros. 

Please pay your bill within 2 weeks of receiving the reminder in order to prevent additional charges.


Have you still not paid your bill after the additional two weeks? Then a warrant ('dwangbevel' in Dutch) will be issued and sent to you by mail. You must pay the warrant within 2 days. You must also pay extra charges of at least 44 euros.

Have you not yet paid the warrant? Then we may send your details to a bailiff. Did you get a letter from the bailiff? Then please pay the bill as soon as possible.


Do you have a question about your bill? Or do you believe that something is incorrect? Feel to contact our customer service. We would love to help you!
