VAT-exempt language courses

Changes to the VAT regulations for professional education

You have the option of purchasing our training courses without VAT. This makes it considerably more attractive for private individuals and organisations that are not liable to remit VAT, such as government authorities, banks and insurance companies, to procure courses.

In short, the change involves the introduction of a statutory exemption from VAT for professional education if it is sold to you by an enterprise that is registered with the Dutch Central Register for Short Professional Education (Centraal Register Kort Beroepsonderwijs) and a statutory obligation to charge VAT on professional education if it is sold by an enterprise that is not listed in the register.

If you wish to purchase VAT-exempt training courses, you will be dealing with our CRKBO-listed business STE Eindhoven BV. We do not charge a mark-up for exempt supplies. This means that you save 21% compared with the prevailing rates. Services such as assessments, which do not fall within the scope of training courses, are still subject to VAT as required by law.

In terms of quality, it does not matter from which division you purchase the language courses.
