Tax-deductible study costs
There are possibilities for Dutch tax residents with taxable income to deduct study costs from their annual income tax return (inkomstenbelasting in Dutch) when following a study program training you in a (new) profession. This deduction is to be arranged personally and Delight Academy is not involved in any tax returns. As of 1 January 2021, deducting study costs from income taxes will be replaced with a new subsidy for study costs, of which not all details are known yet. For more information, please refer to the website of the tax authorities (Belastingdienst in Dutch).


VAT exemption
All yearly fees are exempt from VAT (BTW-vrijgesteld in Dutch) as the Delight Academy programs are recognised as quality professional training by the CRKBO (Centraal Register Kort Beroepsonderwijs) in The Netherlands. 


If you have joined one of the 50+ Ayurveda courses at Delight Academy or elsewhere, you might be eligible to receive an exemption for these hours in this 4-year program. Please send an e-mail to detailing which courses you have previously attended. A discounted pricing option for the exempted hours applies.  


Tuition fees in Year II to IV
Delight Academy reserves the right to increase tuition fees for Year II to IV based on inflation or to implement a small increase in fees if this is deemed needed for the continuity of the study program.
