What are the conditions for a waiver?
The conditions for a waiver are laid down in the Guidance on Collection (Article 26). When assessing your request, we look primarily at your assets and your income (payment capacity).
When assessing your request, we will look at your assets:
- bank and savings deposits;
- own home with surplus value;
- a car or other motorised vehicle (with a value in excess of € 3,350).
Bank balances and savings are only regarded as assets if they exceed the standard amount for living expenses. In practice, this means that, depending on your family composition, you can dispose of these amounts.
|Single person||€ 1.400|
|Single parent||€ 1.600|
|Cohabiting / Married||€ 2.000|
If you were you born before 1-1-1935, you are allowed to have an additional € 3,350 in your bank account.
We also look at your income. This might be your salary, benefits or pension. We check your income against the standard amount for the waiver. The standard amount differs per household type.
We calculate your payment capacity based on your income. We reduce your income by an amount to cover a number of fixed costs, such as your housing costs. You do not have to calculate this yourself. If you apply for a waiver, we will calculate your payment capacity for you.
The standard amounts for waivers are determined by the central government. They are listed on the internet page of the VNG. All municipalities affiliated with BsGW apply the 100% standard.
In addition, a waiver is only available for assessments that have not been paid (or were not paid more than 3 months ago).
