MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DUPE OF OWN MESSY ADMINISTRATION

Amsterdam, October 25, 2013

More than one third of the Dutch there administration is not in order and therefore misses the expiry dates of suppliers and other parties. As a result, many households annually needlessly have extra expenses. This emerges from a study conducted by Peil.nl, the office of Maurice de Hond, commissioned by reminder.nl.

For this study, Maurice de Hond polled some 1,500 Dutch about there organization of their administration. Some nineteen percent have a reasonable overview. It appears that alot of harm is caused because they lost their receipts after noticing a bad buy or needing it for qurantee issues, or because they didn't terminate an agreement on time. About ten percent of them it happens to them continuously (they find that very annoying). Another six percent have no view at all, and try to forget how often that has happened. Just over fifteen percent of the Dutch (16%), is totally not organized with there administration. Almost sixty percent (57%) have two or more contracts that have expired, wich have great financial consequences.


Average of 25 contracts
Over sixty percent (63%) of the Dutch stores there records in binders. Twenty percent of them store it digitally. Consumers have an average of 25 agreements and warranty certificates in the house. SME companies are in possession of about 75 agreements and larger companies we talk about more than 200 contracts. Reminder.nl is a newly established online system for managing business and consumer contracts, subscriptions and warranty certificates. Once an important date or notice period is approaching, reminder.nl sends automatic ReminderAlerts by email on time.
