English Wwft e-learning module for tax advisers and accountants

From 1 October 2019, NOB members can (again) register for the Wwft e-learning module that the NOB has developed in collaboration with the NBA. The e-learning module was revised in 2019. The module has been updated as a result of the legislative amendment of 2018 and has been made more user-friendly.

Training obligation


The Wwft contains a training obligation. Firms must periodically train their employees and day-to-day policymakers, insofar as relevant to their work, so that they are able to recognize an unusual transaction and conduct a client due diligence properly and fully (Section 35 of the Wwft). This training obligation applies to all tax advisers and accountants who perform professional activities for third parties (clients). The Wwft does not apply to company tax specialists. You can meet this training obligation by periodically following this e-learning module.



The e-learning module deals with the scope of the Wwft, client due diligence, duty of disclosure and what must be recorded. Risk management and powers and possible sanctions of the supervisor are also discussed. The e-learning module contains a large number of practical cases focused on the profession of tax adviser or accountant; within the module you can choose which one to do. The module concludes with a test.

English version


In addition to a Dutch version, an English version of the Wwft e-learning module is also available.

A brief overview of the main points


The e-learning module is offered via the internet. You can go through the module wherever and whenever you want. You have one year to do this. Going through the e-learning module takes around 90 minutes. Then you take a test. The module is linked to a Learning Management System (LMS), with which the progress of the participant is monitored. Within six weeks after the successful completion of the module you will receive a certificate by mail. For members of the NOB this e-learning module Wwft stands for two technical PE hours. *

* The NOB would like to point out to the members that Wwft e-learning modules are also available in the market that do not meet the NOB's PE conditions.
