The introduction of moratorium on bank loan payments in Bulgaria has been postponed. On April 1 the Bulgarian National Bank had to come up with criteria for temporary public and private moratorium on bank loan payments. The extraordinary measure is adopted for clients who experience difficulties paying their bank loans due to the COVID-19 crisis. The EU Single Banking Authority delayed for April 2 the announcement of the uniform instructions and criteria for bank loan moratorium in the EU. BNB and the commercial banks operating in Bulgaria suppose that the measures for Bulgaria will be announced by the end of the week. The new measures must make sure that commercial banks will be able to maintain their capital adequacy over the next 9 months. Romania, Poland and Hungary already declared a moratorium on loan principals.
