The Belgian Federal Government ends the temporal scope of a decree concerning the temporary suspension of enforcement measures for the benefit of enterprises during the COVID-19 pandemic

On 17 June 2020, the temporal scope of the Royal Decree concerning the temporary suspension, for the benefit of enterprises, of enforcement measures and other measures during the Covid-19 crisis (the Decree) has ended. The Belgian Federal Government had already extended the original temporal scope of the Decree from 17 May 2020 until 17 June 2020, but has not repeated this.

The Decree was adopted on 24 April 2020 and granted an automatic moratorium during which enterprises were protected against (i) bankruptcy, judicial dissolution and transfers under judicial authority, (ii) attachments and enforcement measures, and (iii) termination of existing contracts due to non-payment. In addition, new credit lines provided during the moratorium and the security interests or acts that were implemented in execution of such new credit lines, were protected against subsequent bankruptcy.
