What changes?

Are you ending part of your business due to a government measure? For example, are you using a termination scheme? From 1 January 2024, you can also use the reinvestment reserve (HIR, in Dutch) to invest in another (second) business, for example.

The reinvestment reserve allows you to defer tax under certain conditions if you sell an asset at a profit. For example, you can use the reinvestment reserve to buy a machine or vehicle for your business. You do not have to pay tax on that portion of your profit yet. At the moment, you are not allowed to use the reinvestment reserve for another (second) business. From 2024, you will be allowed to do so.
