Possible tax refund for (international) employees

Possible tax refund for (international) employees

Recently we have been approached by employees who had received a request to file a 2019 income tax return from the Dutch tax authorities. These employees had not previously received such a request.

Usually a letter from the tax authorities is not good news. An invitation from the tax authorities means that you are obliged to file a tax return. But this could potentially also result in a tax refund. In addition, a refund for previous years could also be in order. International employees who entered or left the Netherlands in previous years are most likely entitled to a tax refund when filing their income tax return. Tax returns can still be filed for the year 2015 and later. We do feel it is a waist to leave money in the bank of the Dutch tax authorities.

Do you have an employee, or are you an international employee, who entered or left the Netherlands between January 1st 2015 and December 31st 2019 and/or do you want to know whether you are entitled to a refund when submitting a Dutch income tax return, please contact Jantiene van der Velden via [email protected]. We offer you a quick scan (free of charge) to calculate the refund and only after your approval, we can then assist you in preparing and submitting your Dutch income tax return to the tax authorities. Of course we do this by providing you personal service and at our competitive rates.
