Dutch term or phrase: werkkostenregeling
Has anyone created/encountered a good English translation for werkkostenregeling, a new tax regime for employee allowances to be introduced here in NL in 2011. I'm a bit stuck for anything other than a long-winded description. All suggestions appreciated.

Info from Belastingdienst: "De werkkostenregeling komt in de plaats van de huidige regels voor vrije vergoedingen en verstrekkingen. Door deze regeling kunt u maximaal 1,4% van uw totale fiscale loon (de 'vrije ruimte') besteden aan onbelaste vergoedingen en verstrekkingen voor uw werknemers. Daarnaast kunt u bepaalde zaken onbelast blijven vergoeden of verstrekken door gebruik te maken van de gerichte vrijstellingen." http://url.ie/8619

It may be a bit too general for your specific translation but it does seem to cover the description you offered.
