2018 Tax Plan - Budget Day (Prinsjesdag)

On Budget Day (Prinsjesdag), 19 September 2017, the government introduced the 2018 Tax Plan to the House of Representatives.

29 November 2017

Dutch version


The House of Representatives has agreed to the 2018 Tax Plan package on 23 November 2017 and to the phase-out of deductions due to no or a minor home acquisition debt. This was subject to the adoption of several amendments.

Some parts of the coalition agreement presented on 10 October 2017 will take effect as early as on 1 January 2018. To this end, the government recently presented a memorandum of amendment to the 2018 Tax Plan. On top of that, a bill was submitted that provides for the gradual phase-out of the facility enabling tax deductions for non-existing or minor home acquisition debts. 


The government coalition parties VVD, D66, CDA and CU presented their coalition agreement on 10 October 2017. The document lays down the new government’s policy intentions. Quite some changes will be implemented, including numerous tax measures.


The Dutch government presented the 2018 Tax Plan to the House of Representatives on 19 September 2017. This tax package encompasses the following bills:

  • 2018 Tax Plan
  • Other tax measures 2018
  • Tax Deduction Obligation Holding Cooperative and Extension Withholding Exemption Act
  • Abolition of VAT Agricultural Scheme Act


Most measures will come into effect on January 1, 2018. If this is different, we have stated this. The bills may be subject to change as a result of the parliamentary debate. We will now present the measures proposed for each type of tax.
