            For certain employees hired from outside of the Netherlands who bring specific expertise to the Netherlands, a special tax ruling exists called the '30% ruling'.

             It allows an employer to provide an employee with a tax-free allowance of up to 30% of his/her wages.

            We have a very transparent fee structure for 30% ruling applications. Our competitive fixed-fee includes all of the following:

            • filing a pro-forma request for the 30% ruling with the tax authorities (when necessary);
            • gathering information and filing the final 30% application;
            • follow-up communications with employer, employee and/or tax authorities;
            • review of the 30% ruling grant and forwarding the tax ruling (plus taxpayer's copy) to the employee and employer for further procedure;
            • further assistance regarding the benefits of the 30% ruling such as obtaining a Dutch driver's license.
