Clients and contractors (freelancers) are happy to have certainty about the employment relationship they enter into with each other. Until 1 May 2016 this was possible with the Declaration of Work Relationship (VAR). Since 1 May 2016 it has been replaced by the DBA Act. This law did not bring the clarity and tranquility that he had to bring. The government has therefore decided to replace the law. The aim is to have the new measures take effect on January 1, 2021. Until that time, the DBA Act is in force.
More info on the website of the national government.
From May 1, 2016 the new DBA Act will take effect. In this video Marieke Franken explains what you have to do as a freelancer to comply with the new DBA Act. Do you have any questions? Feel free to contact us.
