All About Expats

What is the 30% facility?

If an expat comes to work in the Netherlands, he or she may be confronted with extra costs, also known as extraterritorial costs. Consider for example, costs for double housing, extra costs for completing Dutch tax returns, costs for legalization of documents and conversion of a driving license and extra costs for living.

The 30% facility is a Dutch tax facility aimed at attracting foreign talent to work in the Netherlands.

After approval by the Tax Authorities, the employer may provide the expat with a maximum of 30% of his or her wages tax-free.
