Default Cheap Dutch Accountancy Services?

Can anybody recommend a cheap Dutch accountant to handle payroll, 30% rule filing and Corporation tax/Annual accounts for a very small BV?

I’m a part qualified UK accountant so can manage the bookkeeping/payments myself and am hoping to handle VAT reporting too. As I understand it, I need a Qualified Dutch accountant to handle the rest but quotes so far seem a little high (around EUR 2500-3000 per annum) and also designed to confound me in to thinking I need far more assistance than I do.

Bit of background: My husband has been in the Netherlands for a while but was unaware of the 30% ruling until it became too late to claim despite the fact that he only moved there for work and ticks all the other boxes to qualify. The idea therefore is for us both to work out of this new company when I move over to start my freelance job next month so that we can draw the majority of the funds out as my director salary & make the most of the ruling which I am (hopefully) still eligible for.

I’m told this is all legal and above board if a little sneaky, but the point is that there should not be many transactions or profit to speak of and I don’t want to pay a fortune in fees as this negates the point of setting up the company in the first place (plus i've already had to fork out for notary costs etc.).

That said, I also want to make sure everything is covered so if I’ve missed anything above that I also need to report/manage, please do let me know!

Many thanks in advance,

This sounds like a complex arrangement and is likely only to cause problems. The fees asked are actually quite low and around the average that you would pay to a local administration office to look after your taxes. If your partner qualified for the 30% ruling, then this is something that should have been investigated before coming to NL and would already have been implemented. In general, it’s not advisable to try and pull the wool over the eyes of the Dutch tax authority as they are very hot on these things and it’s only likely to end in tears or a hefty fine.
