Make your event WKR Proof

We help you make your incentive or event tax deductible

We at Sailing Dutchman Events often get the question whether a certain company outing still falls within the WKR (work-related costs scheme). There has been a lot of change in that area since 2015. In addition, the regulations have been expanded since 1 January 2020. We would like to set out for you how you can organise a company training course or company outing that falls outside the scope of the WKR. Would you like to know more or do you have a specific question? Then please contact us. As an event organizer, we are pre-eminently the ones who can provide you with expert and adequate advice, so that you are not faced with unexpected and excessive costs.

What is the WKR?
The work-related costs scheme replaces all rules and legislation concerning reimbursements and provisions for employees and combines these in one collective scheme. Under the work-related costs scheme, a company or organization may spend a maximum of 1.7% of the wage bill (up to €400,000), the 'free margin*', on untaxed compensation and benefits in kind for employees. These allowances and provisions must be entered in the administration as final taxable income. The organization does not pay wage tax on the amount that falls within the free margin.

A few examples:

1. Teambuilding
A sportive activity with your employees can be a great teambuilding training. When the instructor gives explanations and exercises after a sportive group activity and emphasizes on cooperation, the activity does not fall under the WKR.

2. Company training
All company training courses fall outside the WKR.

3. Company outings
The description 'predominantly business-related' offers possibilities to exclude company out ings and events from the WKR. Condition is that there is a thorough description by the client and the provider of the activities. Andres said: the purpose of the day and what the outing contributes to this must be well described. We are happy to help you with this!

4. Staff outing
An outing organized by a staff association and paid for by the employees falls outside the WKR.

In our blog we go deeper into all the possibilities around the WKR read the whole story here. We have also made a calculation example in which the possibilities are explained.

Are you not sure whether your company outing does or does not fall under the WKR? Or do you want to be sure that you will not receive any unpleasant tax assessments? Please contact us and we will advise you with pleasure and a lot of knowledge!
