Start date of 30% ruling from now on employee’s first day of employment

August 7th, 2020|

The Dutch tax authorities have recently adapted the issuance of 30% ruling decisions. In future, the start date of the ruling will correspond to the first day of the employee's employment (instead of the first day of the month, as was the case until now). Example: The employee meets all the conditions of the 30% ruling, has not previously resided and/or worked in the Netherlands and enters employment as of August 22, 2020. The request is done within four months after the start date of the employment. Old situation Start date of Decision August 1, 2020 Decision end date July 31, 2025 New situation Start date of decision August 22, 2020 Decision end date August 21, 2025 It is therefore important for the 30% ruling applications that the correct start dates of employment are given.

VAT entrepreneurship members of committees

July 27th, 2020|

The Dutch Supreme Court has recently ruled that a member of an advisory committee (‘bezwaaradviescommissie’) is not acting as VAT entrepreneur. The Court judges that the activities by this individual member do not take place in its own name, for its own account nor under its own responsibility. As a result, any member of certain committees (‘bezwaaradviescommissie, raad van commissarissen, raad van toezicht’) are not acting as independent VAT entrepreneur and therefore are no VAT due on the received remuneration. This prevents for non-deductible VAT in case the payer of the remuneration is not able to reclaim VAT. Please contact us in case you would like us to determine your VAT position and see if non-deductible VAT can be avoided.
