Private Use of Vehicles amended
The tax rules concerning the private use of company cars will change as of July 1.
On Friday the cabinet made the decision in response to a recent ruling by the court in Haarlem.
In the most extreme scenario imaginable the ruling could mean that there will no longer be VAT charged on the private use of a company car. That would cost the Treasury around EUR 500 million.
The legislation is being amended so that the VAT will no longer be dependent on the amount of the addition. Instead, a percentage of the catalogue price of the car will be used for the calculation of the VAT.
