01 Oct. No additional tax company car with “tamper-diesel engines”

The cheating of car manufacturers with CO-2 emission figures caused much fuss. Many owners of company cars are concerned about the tax consequences for themselves, at least in cases where their cars will be in a higher tax band due to higher emissions.


However, in a recent interview for Dutch TV-channel RTL-Z the Netherlands’ minister of finance Jeroen Dijsselbloem announced that there will not be levied any additional taxes for company car users. “Deceived citizens do not have to repay the tax authorities” he said. “No citizen will receive an additional tax assessment in this respect.” (RTL-Z, 29-09-2015)


The announcement most likely will soon be captured in an official approving document. Till that time any user of a company car can trust that the Dutch tax authorities will abide the announcement of the minister.

20 Dec. Dutch tax changes 2015: what does that change for you?

This week the Dutch parliament agreed on the new tax figures for 2015. As a result, you will be able to find out what changes for you as of 1 January.


As already indicated the number and maximum amounts of tax rebates will be further retrenched. A number of children related rebates will disappear and the labour rebate will be further diminished for higher incomes. The tax deduction for costs of living paid for children is fully abolished.v

The lump sum rental value for owned houses (in Dutch: “eigenwoningforfait”) increases by 0.05% on houses with a maximum WOZ value of € 1,050,000, while the rental value increases from 1.8% to 2.05% as far as the WOZ exceeds this €1,050,000. Maximum deduction rate for mortgage interest goes down to 51%.


The annual maximum tax deduction for contributions to private old age investments (e.g. life annuities) is reduced by more than half, as a result of significant changes in Dutch tax rules on pensions.


The tax rate for income from substantial shareholdings (box II income) increases to its pre-2014 rate of 25%. Substantial shareholders who are also directors of their companies further need to take into account the tightened tax rules about deemed salary.


Speaking about wage tax, a very significant change is that the new tax rules on employment costs become obligatory, after having been voluntary so far. As a result, every employer with employees in the Netherlands needs to meet the new rules as of 2015.


If you want to read more about those and other changes, please open the attached document. Should it be difficult for you to read this document, please feel free to contact us for an explanation.

03 Apr. Three months condition important in case of change of employment with 30% ruling

Recently the Dutch Supreme Court confirmed the three months condition to be met in all cases for employees who qualify for the 30% ruling and who change employment after your first employment in the Netherlands. As a result, when you enter into a new job or Supervisory Board member position after three months upon termination of your first job, you will not be able to apply for the 30% ruling for that new job(s).


When you benefit from the 30% ruling and switch to one or more new jobs, you can request for application of the 30% ruling for those new jobs for the remaining ruling period, provided of course you still meet the conditions for application of the ruling.


Any job or Board position you start later than three months after termination of the job that brought you to the Netherlands, will result in not being allowed to use the 30% ruling for those jobs.
