Dutch Tax Returns
Expats that work in the Netherlands may have to file a Dutch tax return. Also for expats that benefit from a 30% ruling (see next paragraph), the Dutch income tax return can be complex. For example: when you paid too much taxes and social security contributions over one year, you can send in an application for a Dutch tax return. Paying too much tax and social security contributions can also happen if you worked in the Netherlands for less than 12 months. The tax return that you receive in the Netherlands is based on an estimated yearly salary. Because there are so many rules and legislations, it’s common that mistakes are being made. Especially when you’re not familiar with the Dutch tax returns. It is our experience that expats have troubles meeting this deadline for filing the tax return. TGS lime tree therefore not only prepares and files tax returns, but also applies for extension of this filing date.
30% tax ruling
Next to the subjects stated above, there’s also the 30% tax ruling. This means that, under Dutch law, a foreign employer is allowed to reimburse employees for any extraterritorial costs they incur while working in the Netherlands. This is a complex administrative procedure which becomes even more complicated when the amount of employees, working for the same employer in the Netherlands, does increase. The 30% tax ruling allows employers and employees to handle this situation in an easier way. By petitioning the tax office, an employer can invoke the 30% tax ruling and pay a tax-free cost allowance to its employees. If the facility is granted, the employer may pay the employee a tax free allowance of up to 30% of the employee’s wage
