Fiscal advice

In case you have fiscal questions or requests or when you are interested in investing in the future or you wish to sell your investments, then I could be of help. Are you planning to move to the Netherlands or to emigrate? Verberne Consultancy has expertise in that field as well and will happily discuss these matters with you.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Personal income tax return

Every year, the mailman delivers that infamous blue envelope which includes an invitation for filing your personal income tax return. Even though you might sometimes not receive such an invitation, there is still no escaping to the obligation of filing a tax return. Even if there is no obligation at times, it could prove very worthwhile to file one anyway, as you could be entitled to a tax refund. Filing a tax return has always been a pretty tough job, or at least not peoples’ favourite one. Many questions are raised in the return and it is not always clear which items are applicable to your situation, for instance:

  • You sold a house and you bought another house. Are you able to deduct the full interest on your new mortgage?
  • You started your own company. Are you entitled to certain facilities for entrepreneurs such as the self-employment deduction, the start-up deduction and the pension reserve? What are the requirements for each of the deductions?
  • You bought bitcoins and you are interested if you need to mention these bitcoins in the tax return and against which value?
  • You are earning foreign income (wage, pension), is this income subject to income taxes in the Netherlands?

These questions are just an example of questions which could be applicable to your situation but as yet have not found the answers to. Verberne Consultancy can help you in answering these questions for you.

Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions or if you wish to make an appointment.

Olav, in his capacity as tax advisor, advised me particularly adequate, professional and customer friendly with the settlement of an income and wealth tax issue as well in doing a gift to a so called “ANBI, het Nederlands Instituut voor Kunstgeschiedenis” and with a settlement of an estate.

Start-ups or entrepreneurship

You have just started your own company and hopefully you have reached that point where the market and your target group have found you. Because you are a real entrepreneur and you are busy doing what you like doing so much: showing yourself and selling your products, it is understandable if you prefer not to deal as much with the other side of entrepreneurship, the administrative part. Verberne Consultancy is able to help you or assist you with this. I can also provide you these services. My services consist of:

  • Advising in all administrative obligations
  • Assisting in looking for the most efficient way of conducting an administration
  • Providing a simple bookkeeping system
  • Assisting or providing simple year end accounts (for self-employed or a “micro BV”)
  • Assisting in or filing year end accounts with the Chamber of Commerce
  • Assisting in or filing a VAT/Corporate income tax return

In case you are interested and you would like to make use of my services, please feel free to contact me, of course without any obligations at that stage.

VAT return (BTW)

Your company’s activities consist of rendering services or purchasing or selling goods? In most cases, your company is subject to Dutch VAT and you are obligated to file a periodic VAT return. Verberne Consultancy can assist you with this and is able to advise you in (complex) VAT matters. Examples of VAT matters could be the following:

  • You are selling goods to private individuals abroad. Do you have to charge Dutch VAT? Or do you need registration in other countries?
  • One particular client has not paid your invoice and your expectation is that this invoice will not be paid. Are you able to claim back this VAT with the Dutch tax authorities?
  • You are having a small company and on a yearly basis, you only have to pay EUR 1,000 of VAT. Are you able to make use of the small entrepreneur’s deduction?

With these and more issues, Verberne Consultancy can help you. Please feel free to contact me, of course without any obligations.
