Does your WBSO application meet the conditions? Then you will receive an R&D declaration with your tax benefit. On this page you can read about the steps following your application. So you know what we expect from you, and what you can expect from us.

Steps following your WBSO application

Below you find a description of what to expect after your WBSO application.

Digital communication

Message box (Berichtenbox in Dutch)

Have you requested a Berichtenbox for all your government messages? Then we will also send decisions to your message box. All messages can also be found in the application portal.

Application portal

You receive information about the S&O hourly wage digitally via the application portal. We send you a (notification) e-mail from '' when a message is ready for you in the portal. Please mark these emails so that they do not end up in your spam box. Also keep an eye on your mailbox. We recommend that you give multiple employees access to the e-mail address you use to submit the application.

You can answer questions from RFO online and view and manage your application. You can do this in the application portal (in Dutch) at 'Mijn aanvragen'. In your tasks (top right), click on 'Verzoek aanvullende informatie' to answer the questions.

A handy checklist with tips and points for consideration to help you with the obligations following your WBSO application can be found in the publication 'Een WBSO-aanvraag en dan...' on the WBSO publications page (in Dutch).
