What is an Employer of Record (EOR)?

An Employer of Record is an entity that legally assumes the responsibility of employing workers on behalf of another company. Essentially, the EOR becomes the official employer, handling all aspects of employment, including payroll processing, tax withholding, benefits administration, and compliance with local labor laws and regulations. An EOR’s services can be used whether a company has or does not (yet) have a legal entity in a specific country.

For businesses looking to expand in the Netherlands, partnering with an Employer of Record can streamline the process significantly. By leveraging the EOR’s expertise, companies can enter the market quickly and efficiently without the need to navigate complex legal procedures.

As for companies who do have legal entities in the Netherlands, partnering up with an EOR can allow the same company to hire talent from outside of the EU by outsourcing them all the payrolling and immigration matters.

Working at a Dutch company that is not a recognised sponsor

Expats can work at any company they like without the company being a recognised sponsor. With the help of an employer of record, you can work at any company you wish as they will assist you with your visa applications and residence permits. The Employer of record will be your legal employer while you will be conducting your normal work activities at the hiring company.
