Do you need to hand in a Dutch 30% tax ruling application because you are a foreign employee working in The Netherlands? It may be difficult to find the correct information that is applicable for your situation. Some professional advice of a reliable advisor may be desirable. Witlox International Tax Advice was established to help foreign employees with tax issues, such as the 30% tax ruling.

How does the 30% tax ruling work in the Netherlands?

The Dutch 30% ruling is a tax advantage offered to highly skilled migrant employees. If you want to apply for the Dutch 30% ruling, you must apply for it within four months after you start working in the Netherlands. If you apply after the four-month period, the ruling can only be granted from the next month after the application. The ruling stipulates that 30% of your gross income will be paid without any taxation. This results in the fact that your net spendable income is much higher. This is to offset the costs of relocating to the Netherlands.

How can a tax advisor help you?

Expats who work in the Netherlands receive the 30% ruling for a period of five years. This applies to both existing expats as well as new expats who have recently arrived. Are you wondering how this will affect your tax calculations? In 2000, tax advisor Maurice Witlox started his own company for tax consultancy to help foreign employees working in the Netherlands (in cities such as Nijmegen or Rotterdam) with their difficulties regarding tax issues. The tax advisors can check and explain the application of the ruling and fill in the request on behalf of both employer and employee. Checking if all relevant information is included and if the granted approval corresponds with the request is possible too. We can also apply for the ruling itself. In case your request is not accepted when a rejection is not expected, we can file an appeal on your behalf.
