If you come to work in the Netherlands, you are possibly confronted with extra costs, so-called extraterritorial costs. We may provide you with 30% of your wage, including reimbursement, tax-free. This facility is known as the 30%-facility. For this, it is not necessary to prove that expenses have been incurred.
The result of the 30% rule, which can be applied for a maximum of 5 years, is a tax benefit, that can amount to hundreds of euros net per month.
We only can apply for the 30% rule after your arrival in the Netherlands, since we do need your BSN for that. The processing of the application takes 3 months. After that we can start applying the 30% rule, of course with retroactive effect.
Also, when the 30% takes effect, you can start the procedure to convert your driver license.
