Bulgaria's central bank BNB has adopted the guidelines approved by the European Banking Authority for private moratoria on payments in light of the Covid-19 crisis. Payment moratoria are seen as an effective tool to address short-term liquidity difficulties for clients. Many businesses and citizens now experience difficulties resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rules should not interfere with the maintenance of commercial banks' capital liabilities, the BNB informs.
