STAP-budget: personal development budget

As of 1 January 2022, study costs and other training expenses will no longer be tax deductible. Instead, the STAP budget subsidy scheme has been introduced.

STAP stands for Stimulans Arbeidsmarkt Positie (Labour Market Position Incentive). The scheme is intended for workers and jobseekers from the age of 18. People who are still entitled to student grants and loans or who have a study voucher are excluded from the scheme. The STAP budget is a personal budget of a maximum of €1,000 per year, including VAT, for taking a programme, training, course or part-time or dual programme.

Have you already started your studies?

Unfortunately, students who have already started a multi-year programme are not eligible for a STAP budget. You can find this information on the website of the Ministry of Social Affairs in the brochure Questions & Answers for the STAP Budget Subsidy Scheme (on the last page above the ‘Payment’ heading).
