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.
