We would like to give you a summary of these relief measures:

  • Companies can file a request to postpone payments of wage tax, VAT and corporate income tax.
  • Companies can file a request for compensation of wage costs if the company expects a loss of turnover of at least 20%.

The maximum compensation paid by the Government is 90%. This compensation applies at a 100% loss of turnover.
The company commits herself not to dismiss her employees for economic reasons.

  • The interest rate that the tax authorities charge at postponed payments is decreased from 4%/8% to 0,01%.


This is just a brief summary of the relief measures in the Netherlands.
