When a Dutch withholding agent pays an “excessive severance payment” to an employee, the withholding agent must declare and pay a 75% pseudo-final tax over the excessive part of the severance payment.   A severance payment is disproportionate to the extent it exceeds a certain threshold, which for the severance payment is € 612,000 (2023). 

The withholding agent must file a declaration when the 75% pseudo-final tax becomes due in the prescribed standard form and must be filed in hardcopy.  An additional assessment will specify the amount, the due date, wire details, and the reference number.
