The Corona crisis and payment risks An important activity of CNB is the assessment of payment risks. Customers who buy via CNB, are assessed whether they can pay (in time). We do this, among other things, by maintaining contact and requesting documentation. The crisis now caused by the Coronavirus gives a completely new dimension to the assessment of risks. As it stands, various buyers are having problems paying their bills on time. Buyers will have to make every effort to meet their obligations. One of the main questions you have, is whether CNB will pay the upcoming payment dates. At the moment we are doing everything we can to get that done. More information You can find information about this on various websites (Anthos, KAVB). We advise you to do everything possible to claim the arrangements intended for you.
