Controle legesgrondslag

Gemeenten hanteren over het algemeen de bouwkosten als legesgrondslag , berekend volgens NEN 2631. Over de hoogte van de bouwkosten is bij een vergunningverlening vaak nog enige discussie omdat een aanvrager gebaat is bij een lagere grondslag, immers hoeft de aanvrager dan minder leges te betalen. IGG heeft enkele tools ontwikkeld om gemeenten bij te staan bij het bereken en onderbouwen van de werkelijke bouwkosten. De mogelijkheden zijn bouwkostencheck en controle op de legesgrondslag.
