Make use of the tax advantage

It’s possible to pay the VAWO’s contribution via the Selection Model Employment Conditions. Your employer deducts the contribution from your gross salary, so that you will pay less taxes. The net advantage can reach up to 50%. The scheme can differ for every institution or university, so check your employer’s website or ask human resources about it.
