The STEP training budget is a subsidy, which stands for Stsimulation Alabor market Pposition. With this budget, every citizen who qualifies for this can apply for a budget of € 1000 to educate himself. The scheme is proving very popular. On March 1, 2022, the very first period of the STAP budget was opened and within 3 days the budget of the first period was completely exhausted. But there is another chance in January 2023!

The STAP subsidy is aimed at private individuals, which is why we use the VAT-exempt price for STAP registrations. Because we offer an invoice without VAT, we are forced to charge a cost-effective correction of 8% on the investment price. So instead of 21% VAT on the investment price, you pay 8% VAT-free correction. More information.
