Tax credit for green investments
Where can I invest in green investments?
Investing in a Green Fund yields a lower return, however, you do get a tax benefit. Because your return on these investments is lower, the green projects are able to lend money at a lower rate as well. We list several banks and institution which are acknowledged as a Green Fund by the government:
- ABN AMRO Groenbank B.V.
- ASN Groenprojectenfonds
- BNP Paribas Groen Fonds
- Groenwoningen Fonds
- ING Groenbank N.V.
- Nationaal Groenfonds
- Rabo Groen Bank B.V.
- Regionaal Duurzaam 1
- Stichting NOTS RE Investments
- Triodos Groenfonds N.V.
- Ecowoningen Fonds
Tax exemption in box 3
The tax credit for green investments is calculated using the maximum exemption that you use when determining your taxable income in box 3 (savings and investments). The tax credit is 0.7% of your exemption in box 3. The Belastingdienst automatically calculates this when determining your assessment.
If you have green investments, the tax exemption in 2020 amounts to €59,477 if you do not have a fiscal partner and if you do have a fiscal partner the tax exemption amounts to €118,954. When the value of the investments is higher, you have to pay tax on the difference between the amount of the exemption and the value of your green investments.
