According to Dutch tax law, employers have the possibility to reimburse expenses to employees free of tax, or under a reduced tax rate. This is the so-called ‘work-related expense scheme’ (hereinafter: WKR-scheme). If the reimbursements are not free of tax, the taxable elements could still be tax exempt if the total sum does not exceed the tax free sum of the WKR-scheme. The tax free sum for an employer is 1.2% (2019) of the annual taxable wage.

If employers are still able to draw up employment contracts, it is advisable to construct the situation in a certain way. It will probably save a serious amount of wage costs.
