On 16 January 2023, the Royal Decree regarding the basic banking service for businesses was published in the Belgian Official Gazette.

This Decree establishes the "Basic Banking Services Chamber" which will examine applications from businesses wishing to benefit from the basic banking service and designate a bank that is obliged to provide such service.
