Amanda Brouwers and Piotr Wawrzyniak – from Schelstraete C.S. Advocaten – successfully assisted a Mexican showjumper and horse trader residing in the Netherlands in a legal dispute with his former employer regarding income tax and social security. According to Dutch law an employer may not demand payment of particular social security contributions from an employee. The former employer of our client refused to pay back the amount of approximately 10.000 euro regarding social security contributions which was paid by our client via a settlement agreement. Eventually, Court proceedings were not necessary and the employer / the tax advisor of the employer repaid voluntarily the full amount to our client.
