Start your Dutch job via a recognized IND sponsor
Lots of Dutch and international companies are sometimes troubled finding talent, whilst there might be an abundance in other countries. Those highly skilled workers are very welcome in the Netherlands. But due to all the complex rules, it can be quite the hassle settling here. Our services create the possibility of starting to work in the Netherlands in no-time. The only thing that’s left for you to do, is find a good employer that suits your wishes.
Have you decided to start working in the Netherlands as a highly skilled migrant or expat? Congratulations, we are happy to welcome you in the Netherlands. WePayPeople is recognized as a sponsor by the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) and listed in the Public Register Regular Labour and Highly Skilled Migrants. This means that we are competent to arrange your contracts, payment and the rest of the immigration procedure. After that, all that rests is your move to the Netherlands. We take care of the rest.
If you and your family have no stress about the immigration procedure, you can start your job much more relaxed. We assist with all the procedures, so you can focus on your job.
During your secondment, you are insured under your own social insurance schemes. Due to the fact that you may apply for an exemption from local social security during international secondment, you will remain insured in your country of origin.
You aren’t able to start your job without the right documents. That’s why we assist you with it. We request a Citizen Service Number (BSN), Dutch bank account and the essential residence documents.
The 30% ruling -or 30% facility- enables your employer to grant 30% of your salary tax-free. This results in equal costs for your employer and a higher net pay for you. We make sure you can apply for this scheme.
Are you sick while working here? We continue paying your wages and ensure a moment with an occupational physician. If necessary, we arrange the entire reintegration process, so you can get back to work as soon as possible.
If the agreement between you and your employer ends, we assist with handling the remaining tasks. We take care of the termination of your employment contract. No hassle, long queues or other matters: you focus on the your move, we take care of all the administrative tasks.
If you are from within the European Union or Iceland, Norway, Switzerland or Lichtenstein, you are able to travel and work freely in the Netherlands without needing a residence permit. However, if your secondment takes longer than 90 days, registration with municipal authorities in order to obtain your Citizen Service Number (BSN) is mandatory. Mainly because you are then part of the Dutch tax and social security system.
If you are from a different country than the ones stated above, it is mandatory to apply for a residence permit. (Do this immediately when you enter the country, if you are planning to stay for more than 90 days.) You may even need a visa to enter the Netherlands, depending on your country of origin. There are several requirements that need to be met in order to apply for a work permit, visa or EU blue card:
- ICT (Intra Company Transfer)
- EU blue card
- High skilled knowledge migrant
- Self-employed person
While orienting for your migration to the Netherlands, you’ve probably read about the 30% ruling that applies here. This Dutch tax reduction law -that only applies to migrant workers- makes it possible for employers to pay out a tax-free cost allowance to their employees. By including this amount (roughly 30%) in the employee’s salary, the employee’s net salary is increased while costs remain the same for the employer. This is the very essence of the Netherlands’ 30 percent tax ruling.
But before you take-off to cloud nine, it’s good to know that there are a few conditions that apply for the 30% facility.
- There must be an employment contract
- You are not from the Netherlands
- You have lived outside the Netherlands for at least 16 months in the last 2 years, more than 150 km from the Dutch border
- You have specific expertise
- You must receive an annual tax salary that at least corresponds to the established salary standard.
- Upon commencement and termination within a calendar year, the 30% facility is calculated pro-rata.
- Extra costs for living in the Netherlands.
- Costs for orientation trips to the Netherlands for houses or schools.
- Application and amendment costs for official documents, such as residence permits, visa and driving licenses.
- Costs for medical examinations and vaccinations to reside in the Netherlands.
- (Double) housing costs.
