Workshop: Dutch payroll/wage/income and COVID-19 tax related updates

Tax related issues are always a hot topic among startups and scaleups. For this reason, TNW and KPMG Meijburg & Co will be organizing a series of events to help you learn about the tax systems in the Netherlands.

This first hour of the session will focus on People Services, which include payroll/wage tax and income tax related topics. Additionally, the speakers will discuss updates regarding COVID-19 tax measures taken by the Dutch government covering wage tax and VAT. Tax is one of those things that no one likes to think about. However, when you start a business that grows and you are hiring people, one of the first taxes that becomes important is wage tax, payroll administration, and maybe even the 30% ruling. For this workshop we have invited Niloefar Daliri and Floor Kuijer, People Services specialists of KPMG Meijburg & Co, to give an introduction into people-related tax.

Niloefar and Floor will cover a variety of wage tax/income tax related topics with a focus on the following subjects:

  • Wage tax/payroll tax implications of hiring employees
  • Hiring people from abroad where 30% rulings may apply
  • How to deal with stock options from a wage tax and income tax perspective
  • COVID-19 Wage tax update

The COVID-19 VAT update will be covered by Ugurcan.

This event will take place online via Microsoft Teams. Eventbrite will email you 2 mins before the session is due to begin with the link. Please use the chat function to ask any questions during the session.
