Emails for the taxman
A message from our accountant: “Many people do not think about saving there emails. In Holland it is an obligation to save your books and paperwork at least 7 years, this includes e-mails correspondence. Saving this could be important if you enter into a discussion with the tax office. Question, of course what is the importance of saving my e-mails? You can discuss about this but an important issue is the fact that the obligation of proving something is with the tax office. However if someone did not keep all of his records the tax office is allowed to turn around this obligation. Meaning you have to prove you are right and that can be tricky if you did not save you e-mail. So, be careful with what you throw away!”
