    Switching to Boekhouder Amsterdam

    Nowadays, switching bookkeepers or accountants has become increasingly popular. Clients have more choices and are no longer tied to the same office they used to work with for years.

    The modern self-employed person and the accounting profession have become much more flexible these days. Because communication via email and social media is easier than ever and exchanging documents is effortless. That’s why switching accountants is now becoming more and more common.

    Why entrepreneurs choose us

    We are an office that keeps up with the times. Despite our relatively low prices, we offer a comprehensive service.

    In addition, you can reach us seven days a week, including after five o’clock and on weekends. We speak the language of the self-employed and are happy to be your modern partner who thinks along with you.

    In addition, we offer a free transfer service. This means that we take care of the handling and transition from your old accountant to Boekhouder Amsterdam for you. We first request your complete file, then delve into it and finally start from there, so that you don’t have to worry about it yourself.

    A good start as a self-employed person is often not a flying start, as success as a self-employed person typically requires patience, dedication and strategic planning. Hopefully, what drives you is passion, intrinsic motivation and good ideas. In addition, we are happy to act as your sparring partner and offer support with:

    • Advice on tax benefits, such as tax deductions and exemptions.
    • Filing your tax return with the Tax and Customs Administration.
    • Assistance with discussions with the bank.
    • Setting up your self-employed administration and advice on business banking and mt-940 files.
    • Registration with the Chamber of Commerce.
    • Understanding the taxes and insurance you will have to deal with.


    We have a lot of experience with deductions and can support you with this. Below are some examples:

    AOV premium

    The premium paid for disability insurance is deductible on your income tax return. Please note that the premium is not deductible on your profit and loss account.

    Self-employed person’s deduction

    If you work at least 1,225 hours per year for your own business, you are entitled to the self-employed person’s deduction of € 7,280. This includes not only the direct hours you spend on your work, but also travel hours, time spent on quotes, accounting, networking events, social media, and creating your website.

    Co-worker deduction or employment remuneration for a tax partner

    If your tax partner cooperates with your case, for example by taking care of the administration or in another way, and this amounts to more than 525 hours per year, you may be eligible for co-worker deduction. If your partner doesn’t have an income of their own, it can sometimes be more cost-effective to actually pay him or her, which is known as employee compensation. In that case, the co-worker deduction will of course lapse.

    Car Expenses

    Many self-employed people in Amsterdam use a car for business purposes, the costs of which are (partially) deductible.

    Old and new cars parked on an Amsterdam canal. For example, if you use a private car for business mileage, you can deduct 21 cents per kilometer driven from your profit.

    If you have the car in your company’s name, a different arrangement applies. Please note: if you cannot prove that you drive less than 500 kilometres per year privately, a substantial addition will be calculated based on the new value of the car.

    As a self-employed person, you can contribute a 15-year-old private car to your company, according to self-employed accountant. The big advantage is that you only have to add 35% of the current value. This is calculated on the basis of the lower current market value instead of the (old) official purchase price.

    Buying a car as a self-employed person

    Indeed, when you buy a car, you can deduct all expenses for business, including petrol, maintenance, road tax, and insurance.

    Let me give an example to illustrate it. Let’s say you buy a 15-year-old Volvo with only 200,000 kilometres on the odometer reading for €5,000. The addition for this car is 35% of € 5,000, which amounts to € 1,750 per year.

    This will then cost you relatively little net, namely € 866 per year (based on a tax rate of 49.5%). However, keep in mind that there is also an addition of 1.5% VAT.

    Let’s compare this to buying a new Volvo with a list price of €75,000. The addition for this would then amount to € 16,500 per year. This would cost you more than €8,000 net.

    By thinking along with you in this way, Boekhouder Amsterdam helps you save money.

      Essentials for your income tax return

      After we filed the sales tax return in January, we will start preparing the final balance sheet and the income tax return in the following months. In principle, these documents will be prepared in March and April.

      Balance sheet at Boekhouder Amsterdam

      At the end of the financial year, we draw up your company’s balance sheet. The balance/book value of your bank account and assets on 31 December will be mapped. The balance sheet consists of:

      1. Your company’s assets, such as inventory, equity, receivables and cash.
      2. Your company’s liabilities, including sales tax payable, any loans, and outstanding accounts with creditors.
      3. The profit and loss account from our accounting package. This compares your turnover for the year (excluding VAT) with your costs (also excluding VAT).

      We include all these amounts in the income tax return, which we prepare and submit for you. Usually, this profit and loss account is sufficient. In the case of a mortgage application, we can draw up separate annual accounts, but this extra service is not included in the annual package and will incur additional costs.

      Please note: The work related to the delivery to banks for loan or mortgage applications in an SBR environment is not included in our all-in price. We do not carry out this work either.

        Did you know?

        In Amsterdam, the number of self-employed without personnel is increasing rapidly. There are currently almost 50,000 self-employed people working in the capital. And this is expected to increase further in the coming years.

        Questions from entrepreneurs for accountant Amsterdam

        What are the advantages of ZZP Boekhouder Amsterdam?

        As a self-employed person in Amsterdam, you know better than anyone how important good administration is. Fortunately, you can contact us for specialized administration support. With twenty-five years of experience in the field, we ensure that your administration is always in order.

        We understand that your schedule as a self-employed person is busy and that is why we are available seven days a week, twelve hours a day. Even after 17:00 you can still reach us and we are open on weekends. This allows us to respond flexibly to your needs.

        We offer you a no-obligation and free introductory meeting. During this meeting we can tell you more about our working method and how we can support you. Our fixed annual price ensures that you will never be faced with surprises and amounts to €960 excluding VAT.

        As a self-employed accountant, we ensure that you make use of all tax deductions and you can submit your bookkeeping online free of charge. We also offer extra start-up guidance for self-employed people.

        Thanks to our support, you will have more time for your partner and/or children. We would be happy to meet you during a free 30-minute introductory meeting at our locations in Haarlem or Amsterdam. There is no charge.

        Why is ZZP Boekhouder Amsterdam so beneficial?

        With us you get a clear, clear and honest administration for an advantageous annual price. We work from home and therefore do not have the costs of an expensive Amsterdam office space that we charge you. What you see is what you get.

        In addition, we invest heavily in the automation of processes, so that you can always receive all information digitally. This saves on paper costs. And let’s be honest, a luxury office with a new car in front of the door is no guarantee for timely and correct processing of the figures. So why should you pay for it?

        As a self-employed accountant, we don’t have to pretend to be more expensive than we are. We believe in transparency and honesty. Our prices are therefore advantageous and you will receive excellent service. Our focus is on providing high-quality administrative support so that you can focus on your work as a freelancer.

        Why does ZZP Boekhouder work with a fixed annual price in Amsterdam?

        Our fixed annual price is €960 excluding VAT and includes standard work if you provide your bookkeeping in a neat manner. We do not charge by the hour, because then you have uncertainty about the annual costs. That is why you will receive a quarterly invoice.

        NB: You will receive an audit that can take place at your home or at our office. At our office, we can collect the questions from the tax authorities and discuss them with you as a customer for an agreed fee. If you want us to go through your bookkeeping upfront, we will charge you extra fees that are not included in the annual package.

        What is useful in Amsterdam? A company car or not?

        Putting a car on the company seems advantageous for entrepreneurs, because the costs such as depreciation, parking fees (high in Amsterdam), fuel, insurance, maintenance, road tax can all be deducted from the company.

        But there is an addition of a maximum of 22% of the list price to the profit of the self-employed person, unless he can prove that he has another car privately and has not driven more than 500 km privately with the business car.

        With a new car, it is often cheaper to put it on the business. For an older car, an addition of up to 25% of the original list price and depreciation of the current value applies.

        If you, as a self-employed person, keep the car private, you can claim the business kilometers at € 0.19 per kilometer. And if you make more than 10% of the kilometers driven for business, you can deduct 75% of the VAT on all fuel and maintenance costs if you have the car privately.

        Are annual accounts mandatory for the self-employed person?

        Annual accounts are also not mandatory for entrepreneurs in Amsterdam, which can be a welcome cut for self-employed people. In recent years, a balance sheet plus profit and loss account have probably been enough for you.

        Fortunately, you don’t have to pay us anything extra for the preparation of these documents, as these costs are included in the annual price.
