Tax Compass

The Dutch tax system is complex. Dutch taxation is based on the country where the employee resides or where income is generated. In short, a Dutch resident is usually taxable on their worldwide income, while a non-resident is taxable on certain types of income. The Dutch tax system operates on a graduated scale, where the tax rate depends on the level of income.

Tax returns must be filed by May 1st of each year, meaning that income from the previous year must be filed by this date. Usually, a personal request is sent to file a tax return, which can be submitted online. To use the online option, a DigiD is required.

When multiple tax jurisdictions need to be considered in order to take advantage of benefits, filling out tax returns becomes more complicated. Expertise and experience are required as soon as there are issues related to tax and social security rights. For example, posted workers are subject to laws and regulations from multiple countries. These complex issues must be handled meticulously for the benefit of both employees and organizations.

In addition, it is advisable to have a review conducted of the Dutch tax and social security position. This will provide assurance that tax legislation is being adhered to correctly. It may also reveal any new benefits that can be taken advantage of by the organization and/or employee.
