    Kindgebonden budget – what is it?

    Kindgebonden budget is a cash supplement paid to parents receiving Dutch child benefit (Kinderbijslag). It is paid monthly and the amount depends on your income as well as the age of your child (up to a maximum of 18 years).

    Importantly – unlike Kinderbijslag, Kindgebonden budget is not paid by the Social Insurance Fund but by the Belastingdienst, the Dutch tax office.

    Who can apply for a Kindgebonden budget?

    First of all, Kindgebonden budget can only be received as a supplement to child benefit, so you should first apply for it at the Sociale Verzekeringsbank (SVB), the Dutch Social Insurance Bank. Kinderbijslag is granted to all persons working legally in the Netherlands and who have children under the age of 18.

    In the case of the Kingebonden budget, the parents’ income is taken into account, making it necessary to fulfil additional conditions. Who can apply for child allowance?

    How do I apply for child allowance in the Netherlands?

    Taxpayers who receive Dutch child benefit should automatically receive Kindgebonden budget. You also do not need to apply for a child allowance if you already receive other benefits from the Belastingdienst such as a rent allowance or a health insurance allowance. Such persons should receive a letter from the tax office stating that they have been granted the benefit within eight weeks of receiving child benefit at the latest.

    This will happen if the office finds that your income is not too high and you meet all the other conditions. However, if you are not informed that you are entitled to benefit, and you think you should be, you must complete and submit an application. To do this, you should prepare:

    The Kindgebonden budget can be claimed for 12 months back, so it is not necessary to apply to the office as soon as child benefit is granted. The office will pay you the outstanding amounts for previous months from the time you were entitled to the benefit.

    Kindgebonden budget Netherlands – how much is it?

    Compared to Kinderbijslag, the amount of the Kindgebonden budget family supplement depends directly on the applicant parent’s income. Each application is therefore considered individually.

    When will you lose your entitlement to child benefit?

    Child allowance is only granted to people who are also entitled to child benefit. When Kinderbijslag is discontinued, child benefit will also automatically be discontinued. As the two benefits are dependent on each other, the Belastingdienst will stop sending you money when your child turns 18.

    It is important to know that we can apply for a kindgebonden budget whenever we are due a family from the Netherlands, even if we are not receiving it.

    Kindgebonden budget and family allowance in the country of origin (residence)

    European Union law provides for the possibility to receive only one child benefit from one country.

    The case is different for kindgebonden budget – we can get this allowance even if we receive child benefit in our country of residence. This is because the Belastingdienst is only guided by whether you are entitled to child benefit from the Netherlands, not whether you actually make use of it.

    In the event that the amount of the allowance proves to be higher than the national family allowance, you will receive an adjustment in the form of a differential allowance. Its amount will depend on the specific situation, as various factors such as the number of children in the family, their age and the financial situation of the parents are taken into account when determining the amount of the allowance.

    Child allowance in the event of alternating custody

    If former partners alternate custody of the child, only one of them can claim the allowance. To do so, the Sociale Verzekeringsbank must be informed which parent is claiming child benefit. This institution will notify the Dutch Tax Office and the applicant will be granted the child allowance, provided he or she meets the relevant conditions.

    There are tools on the Dutch tax authority’s website that allow each parent to make the relevant calculations to find out who can receive a higher child allowance. This will help to determine which carer should apply for child benefit in order to make it as cost-effective as possible.
