Office Hours on Tax – KPMG Emerging Giants

With annual Budget Day (Prinsjesdag) and new tax legislation just around the corner, we're teaming up with our founding partner, KPMG, to host an office hours session to help you tackle all of your tax related questions!

Changes in tax legislation for 2023 will be announced on Tuesday 20th September, so we'll be hosting this event just a couple of days later, on Friday 23rd September. Tax advisors Willem Neuvel and Ugurcan Boy will be here to help you digest and prepare for these changes in 1-on-1, 30 minute sessions.When growing your business, it's important to keep things simple: applying tax law and regulations correctly and in a scalable model minimizes the risk of errors and unnecessary costs! 

During your personal session, you will have the opportunity to ask all of your questions related to Dutch taxes. Topics to discuss include (but are not limited to):

  • I have a new product/service - which VAT rate applies?
  • What should be stated on invoices from a Dutch tax perspective?
  • When should I request a ruling from the Dutch tax authorities?
  • Is the current structure of my business OK from a Dutch tax perspective?
  • I want to hire new (experienced) employees – can I provide them with an attractive remuneration package (including e.g. options?)
  • I am currently looking for funding, what are the differences from a tax perspective between debt versus equity?
  • Can I deduct certain costs in the income tax return or certain VAT items in the Dutch VAT return?

These are just a few examples. If you have any other tax related queries, please sign up for a spot!
