Secretary of Finance Wiebes will soon release a letter of amendment which states that freelancers may not deduct their rent if they use as workspace for at least 10% of their rented house. The Supreme Court judgment's is set aside with this decission.

In August this year, the Supreme Court indicated that entrepreneurs could deduct the rent paid by them from income taxes as long as they use 10% of their rental house as a workshop. The Secretary of State has now put an end to this scheme. Because of all the attention drawn by the judgment, he expects it will costs the Treasury too much.

Inequality between entrepreneurs with owner-occupied house and rented house.

In addition the judgment was a disparity between the treatment of a non-independent workspace for entrepreneurs with a rented house and those who are homeowners. This disparity is corrected again by the letter of amendment. Costs for an independent workspace in both owner-occupied houses as a rental house will remain income tax deductible.
