Posted onCategoriesEnglish articles

We think tax is exciting hence we charge you for most services a fixed fee. A fixed fee implies: this is it. Our fee for a regular income tax return is EUR 390 incl VAT including tax partner. If you have a so called one man company, our fee is EUR 550 ex VAT including tax partner. If the couple has a double one man company, referred to as VOF, our fee is two times EUR 550 ex VAT.

EUR 390 incl VAT for an income tax return and EUR 550 ex VAT for an income tax return?

Why is the one fee including VAT and the other excluding VAT? Simple answer, to private individuals you cannot offer a price excluding VAT. The penalty for doing this is that the client does not need to pay the VAT, but the entrepreneur performing the service does need to pay the VAT to the Dutch tax office. Companies are always charged a fee excluding VAT, hence the difference.

EUR 390 incl VAT for an income tax return, is that expensive?

We are often called by potential clients who ask about the fee and often they immediately give their feedback on how they experience that. “Wow what expensive, the other guy did it for EUR 50,00”. Our response is then why he contacts us if he already found the cheapest tax advisor in the country. “Well, he is no longer doing it”. For us that is a funny reply, as you obviously cannot run a business on such a fee. Most likely it was a hobby tax advisor that did it next to his or her full time job. Then you can have such fees.
