Update on the Temporary Emergency Bridging Measure for Sustained Employment (“NOW”)

Although it is still not possible to apply for a compensation of wage costs on the basis of the NOW, we can provide you with the following update.

The Tax and Customs Administration urges employers that will apply for a compensation of wage costs on the basis of the NOW to submit their (monthly) payroll tax return quickly if they have not already done so. Reason for this is that the UWV will need this information when processing the NOW-application. Only if the UWV has the most up-to-date information from your payroll tax return, you will quickly receive what you are entitled to.

Please note that it is not required to actually pay the payroll tax. If you have run into payment problems due to the coronavirus, you may request a special postponement of payment.
