As from 1 January 2016 the following Acts will enter into effect:
- The Working Beyond State Pension Age Act (Wet werken na OW-leeftijd)
- The Flexible Work Act (Wet Flexibel Werken)
- It is to be expected that as from 1 April 2016 the Declaration of Independent Contractor Status (VAR) will be replaced by a new system, which will allow clients (or groups acting on their behalf) and self-employed contractors to submit a contract for services to the Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst). This can be either in the form of a contract that the client sends to the self-employed contractor, or a model contract available on the website of the Tax and Customs Administration. Until the replacement, the existing VAR system will continue to apply.
