The Temporary Emergency Bridging Measure for Sustained Employment (NOW) is updated. It is now possible to make the application with a non Dutch SEPA bank account number.

An Employer with a non Dutch bank account number needed to complete his application with a Dutch bank account number within four weeks. Practice has shown that this condition could not be met.

As a result, the Dutch government has decided to adjust the scheme. Employers with a SEPA bank account number no longer have to provide a Dutch bank account number.
