The NVTL has entered into collective contracts with a range of suppliers of products and services that offer individual members and practices sizeable discounts and other benefits.
> Discount on Architects Register fees
NVTL members listed on the Architects Register receive a 20% discount on the annual registration fee. The annual contribution is collected with the membership fee for the NVTL. The total fees for the registered NVTL members are transferred to the Architects Registry Office.

> Office supplies discount
A collective contract has been agreed with Lyreco Nederland B.V. giving all members a 30% discount on the gross price of all non-core articles in their catalogue and a discount varying from 30% to as much as 70% on core products.

> Assistance Software discount
Collective arrangements have been made with Assistance Software, a company specialised in administrative software for the architecture industry. You can request information on their products and services without obligation by calling Assistance Software on 0031 (0)35-7503538 or visit their website. You receive a 10% discount on the price of software and a discount of up to 15% if you purchase a complete software package. When making a purchase you must state your member ship of NVTL.
The NVTL does not have a collective labour agreement and so membership entails no compulsory participation in a pension fund. Affiliated practices are free to take out a pension plan for their staff with the Stichting Pensioenfonds voor de Architectenbureaus. The pension scheme is administered by Syntrus Achmea. For more information you can call the Pensioenfonds voor de Architectenbureaus: 0031 (0)20-6072775 or go to their website.
