Housing allowance is possible for all* apartments, depending on your age. For people under the age of 23, unfortunately the Dutch Tax Authority (Belastingdienst) doesn’t give housing allowance for these apartments. Are you 23 years or older? Then you are eligible for housing allowance.
The following is included in the advance payment for service costs (€136 per month); internet, furniture and soft furnishing, utility costs excluding heating for your own apartment, security and cleaning of the common areas (and more).
Only a small part of the advance payment for the service costs is included in the so called “calculation rent” (rekenhuur). The Tax Authority (Belastingdienst) base the housing allowance you receive on this calculation rent. Also see: more information housing allowance at our FAQ page.
