Permit fees

This control process entails costs for the municipality - man hours, administrative costs and other overheads. These costs will be recovered from you in the form of a fee. Each municipality in the Netherlands determines the amount of local fees separately; the cost structure differs from municipality to municipality. Cost-starting is the starting point here - fees are only meant to compensate costs incurred and the municipality has no profit motive.

The municipal fees are part of the total construction costs of your project. If you want to be able to control this effectively, it is useful to have clarity about this cost item in advance. The IGG specialists can help you with this.

Optimize your legal basis

Generally empty ones are charged as a percentage of the construction or investment costs. In many cases, however, it is not entirely clear what should be included in the construction costs, how much are the design costs, the demolition costs in advance and when specific user facilities should or should not be included. Different starting points or approaches also apply per municipality. In many cases, therefore, the legal basis does not have to be equal to the total investment costs and / or construction costs. Incorrectly specifying a basis can cost a lot of money in fees. IGG can help you calculate the correct basis and distribution between the different types of permits.

Calculate the fee for your building application

The fee for a building project depends on various factors. The size and complexity of the project play a role, as well as the predicted construction costs. Unfortunately, the local differences between fees often cause uncertainty. IGG offers various options to give you the insight you need to make the right choice. Our specialists analyze the fees of all municipalities in the Netherlands on every year. Increases and decreases are clearly mapped out and the cost coverage is carefully investigated. This information helps to determine whether the calculated fee is realistic. In addition, you can easily check which fees can be expected for your construction project via the online calculation tool. In addition, you can always call on our specialists for fee optimization and advice on building fees. We have more than 30 years of experience in building cost management and advice and have all the knowledge to support you.
