The contrite accountant

A company trading in ink cartridges was sent an additional assessment by the employee insurance agency UWV. The reason for this was that Unemployment Insurance Act contributions had been paid incorrectly and too late. Client did not know anything about this and approached her accountant to whom the entire salary administration had been subcontracted. Initially, the accountant, who operates all over the Netherlands, denied any form of liability. Eventually, the other party changed their mind thanks to my solid, threatening correspondence, in which I clearly substantiated her legal position with legal precedents that were not open to any other interpretation. The damage was compensated fully. I published this redress (download here) in the Personeelzaken magazine for small and medium-sized businesses.
