This week Bovib learned through her lawyer that the submitted Model Agreement has finally been approved by the Tax Authorities! The corresponding Contract of Assignment (CoA) has also been approved, but a formal confirmation of this has to be followed. With the combination of the Model Agreement and the CoA, there is a solution that not only facilitates the self-employed, but also for the clients. This enables us, as WIBA IT, to take care of the hiring in 2017 just like in previous years, also within the framework of the DBA Act.
Speaking of frameworks, there are unfortunately no breakthroughs in that area. The debate of December 13 still provides insufficient certainty. The suggestions that have been made have not yet beenprocessed by the government. Time will tell how this will develop. The near future is relatively bright, with the postponement of the implementation and of course, the approved agreement. Things like the duration of an assignment and dependence are tackled by the Bovib agreement and, in combination with the Assignment Agreement mentioned earlier, we at least have an airtight procedure within existing frameworks. More detailed information will follow as soon as we know exactly how the use of these two frameworks will work out within our services. We will keep you informed, of course.
Information evening Act DBA
For the freelancers wanting to know more about what the new legislation means for them and what they can do, except using the Model agreement, we organize an informative evening on January 12, where we will address the practical matters for freelancers, and there will be plenty of room to ask questions.
