Hotline for self-employed
Self-employed without employees (ZZP'ers) can report their problems from mid-October at a hotline from the tax authorities.
This hotline will be an online digital form on the website of the tax authorities.
With this hotline, Secretary of State Eric Wiebes (finance), wants to get visibility on unforeseen and undesirable effects of the new "zelfstandigenwet", so he announced this Wednesday. He promises to address any bottlenecks.
The new law should prevent self employed individuals are being squeezed out and put with their back to the wall by their clients for who they work for. Clients and contractors can conclude an agreement if there is clarity needed on their working relationship.
According to self-employed professionals this is exactly where the biggest problem lies: the agreements. Companies are afraid to provide more commands because the tax office does not accept some contracts.
The Dutch parliament will discuss about these issues Thursday evening.
