Withdrawing money from the save-as-you-earn scheme 2012

From 1 January 2012 you can withdraw money in your save-as-you-earn account without paying tax on it. You can use the special withdrawal form from ABN AMRO (only in Dutch) for this.

Bear in mind the following:

  • The money will not immediately be in your unblocked account on 1 January 2012. This is, of course, the case for the normal unblocked sum and interest.

  • Did you fill in your details before 31 December 2011? If so, you will then receive your savings balance in the first week of January in your contra account.

  • As long as the money is in the save-as-you-earn account you receive interest on it.
  • You can only withdraw the whole balance at once untaxed.


You have the whole year of 2012 to request your savings balance.


Your deposits will automatically end as of 1 January 2012.
