KPMG Meijburg’s Presentation of the Dutch Government Budget 2023

September 28, 2022

14:00-14:45

Zoom

 

Welcome to a presentation of the Dutch Government’s Budget for 2023 & the main tax topics, a digital event organized by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with KPMG Meijburg & Co.

 

On Tuesday 20 September the Dutch government will present their budget for 2023. Following the high inflation figures, we expect that the government will announce measures to compensate citizens as well as companies. However, eventually somebody will have to pay the bill – now or in the near future. This will have an impact on the tax measures that will be presented. During a 45 minutes presentation, Jan Hollemans and Tijs van Ruitenbeek will explain and discuss the budget proposal and highlight the main tax topics.

 

This is a Member-by-Member Event organized by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce together with a member company who is sharing their expertise and valid business updates with the Swedish Chamber of Commerce community.

 

 

*The event is free of charge.

The Nordic Chambers and Embassies in the Netherlands are very pleased to invite you to the  #NordicTalks 2022 – Food for Good Summit and EXPO.

 

The food system is incredibly complex as it spans through different resources and across the globe. We need a complete overhaul of the system to be able to feed 10 billion people with nutritious food by 2050. In #NordicTalks on September 22, 2022, we will meet up live at The Amsterdamse Proeflokaal to follow up on the insights and takeaways from #NordicTalks digital Food for Good event in February 2022.

 

At #NordicTalk Food for Good on September 22, 2022, we bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, politicians, and academics from the Nordic countries and from the Netherlands to address how we can contribute to the sustainable and healthy transformation of our global food systems. This will include insights on changes in nutrition sources, urban ecosystems, and local farming to shorten the supply chains and technology – all to ensure food security and resilience in times of climate change, economic decline, and war conflict in Europe.

 

We are happy to announce that we are offering you the opportunity to join us, learn, taste, and network free of charge. For more information, visit the #NordicTalks website.

Golden tips for consumers from #NordicTalk Food for Good February 2022:

  • Be your own gardener – see what you can grow on your own to realize what is the effort behind the whole process and also the value of the food once you put your energy into it 
  • Sniff, Look and Taste before you throw away food just because based on the label it is expired 
  • Support your local producers
  • Educate yourself of what are you eating, read what are the ingredients and nutritions of your choices. Choose smart! And explore new foods from time to time, keeping your mind open 
  • ENJOY – on your own, with family and friends – because food is such a big part of a culture and a way to express emotions

All programs include coaching by Malin Hedlund who will give you the theoretical background information you need, provide practical exercises, facilitate teamwork and individual tasks, and exercises to practice in your environment until the next session. At each session, you will also meet an inspirational speaker or role model with a close connection to the topic.

TESTIMONY

 

WHY SHOULD YOU SIGN UP FOR THE SWEDISH CHAMBER WOMEN BUSINESS LEADERSHIP MASTER CLASSES:

“Participating in the Women Business Leadership program, provided by Malin via the Swedish Chamber, has been a great help in my daily life, both private and business-wise! It has provided me with tips & tricks to be better aware of why I do things the way you do them, and if needed how I might be able to change/improve. The term “ant-steps” is one that often comes to my mind. I really recommend you to join a session!

If you are not able to do all three, one is more than not at all! But I’m sure if you go for one you will most likely want to join all sessions. I always leave these sessions with such a positive boosted feeling.”
