  2. Job feeds to keep up-to-date with the latest vacancies.
  3. Due to tax rules, we can work with freelancers who have a special statement from the tax office ('VAR Verklaring') or have a special blocked bankaccount ('G-Rekening'). As well, we supply our own payroll service for freelancers; all of our foreign freelancers make use of this, but it is also available to Dutch nationals if needed. See below for an overview.

Details payroll service

  1. Overview. We supply a very cost effective Dutch payroll service for freelancers to comply with all Dutch tax and law regulations. This payroll service is particular interesting for non-Dutch nationals, as this is normally the only way they can work in the Netherlands as a freelancer. Working through a foreign (ie, Ltd) company is not possible as we have to prove that all Dutch tax and social premiums are paid. For this payroll service, we will take care of all administration (including making an appointment to collect a Dutch tax number and applying for the 30% ruling on your behalf). Filling out the end-of-year tax return is not included in the service, but can be arranged. 
  2. 30% ruling for non-Dutch freelancers. This is a very attractive tax incentive for foreign skilled workers and it will mean that you don't pay tax over the first 30% of your income, resulting in a significant higher net salary.We will apply for this tax incentive and it normally takes between 4 and 14 weeks before a decision is made. The final decision is always with the tax office, so we can never guarantee that you will be eligible for this. However, we have an excellent track record in obtaining this tax incentive for our freelancers. If the 30% ruling is approved, it will be valid from the start of the contract, so you will be eligible for a refund of the tax that was overpaid from the beginning of the contract. As well, from that moment on you will pay less tax.
  3. Costs. The payroll services costs 2 Euros per worked hour. As well, all necessary insurances, social premiums and taxes are withheld. This includes the 30% ruling application and also offers a basic sickness insurance (you will get paid a certain amount if you're ill for more than 10 working days). We will also pay out within 8 working days after we have received the approved hours. Note that our payroll service is only available for freelancers we have placed and not available as a separate service on its own.
  4. Example calculations. Find below some example calculations for a number of different hourly rates (Euros) for a 176 hour month (22 days). Note that we supply 2 tables, depending whether the 30% ruling has been approved or not. Table 1 gives a calculation without the 30% ruling, while table 2 gives the same calculation with the 30% ruling (therefor resulting in a higher net salary). This calculation is based on tax rates from 2011, so might be slightly different for other years.

Note!!: Click on the second tab below to see the calculation that includes the 30% ruling tax benefit.
