All foreign companies which are sending people to work on assignment in the Netherlands are deemed to have ‘fictitious residence’ in the Netherlands for tax purposes. This means that all employees on assignment in the Netherlands are subject to Dutch income tax liability from day one of such an assignment.


The foreign company is obligated to set up a payroll administration and must make sure that every month the right amount of wage tax and premiums for the social security are withheld and paid. This is also applicable to individual contractors. They may be able to work under their foreign Ltd but that is something which must be approved by the tax authorities.

If a foreign company doesn’t follow the Dutch rules the client for whom the employees are working in the Netherlands can be held liable for the wage tax debt, premiums social security and possible fines. This can lead to serious consequences.
