30% Tax ruling – Update

Zo, dat was het RIDE-je wel weer. Tot slot hier de video. Hopelijk was het leuk en hebben de bezoekers & sponsoren er iets aan gehad. Wij zijn zeer tevreden in ieder geval. De volgende RIDE is Do 29/11/’12. Wederom in Hotel Arena. Thema zal International zijn. Maar liefst 42.000.0000 buitenlandse IT-ers willen in NL werken. Maar eens laten zien dan hoe wij hier Recruiten. Ook kent het buitenland RIDE tegenwoordig. Wellicht interessant dus voor Recruitment partijen die zich wat meer buiten onze landsgrenzen willen profileren of in Nederland een internationale Branding willen uitstralen. We staan open voor alle suggesties etc. Belangrijk voor buitenlanders in Nederland is de 30% Taxrule. Een belastingvoordeel, de laatste tijd volop in het nieuws. Vandaag krijgen wij van onze partner het Amsterdam Expat Center de volgende medeling. Afgeschaft? Nee gelukkig niet! Hier de info. Rechtstreeks gecopieerd, hopelijk dan voor iedereen duidelijk.

By a majority request in Parliament, Weekers now proposes keeping the basic income requirement for the 30% ruling at 50,000 euros, rather than the proposed increase of 70,000 euros. This amount is consistent with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service’s (IND) current highly skilled migrant ruling.

 

The decision stemmed from criticism from both the corporate sector and the municipal government. Supported by the Amsterdam Expatcenter and amsterdam inbusiness, mayors of the Netherlands’ major economic hubs publically lobbied against the proposed changes, organising a petition together with international schools and companies in the region. A formal letter of objection outlining the consequences of the proposed changes for the international community and international companies in the Netherlands was sent to the Ministry of Finance.

The 30% tax ruling is primarily intended for foreign employees who have specialised knowledge. Dutch people who have lived and worked abroad for long periods of time may also apply for the ruling.

The new decision is of particular importance to highly skilled migrants working in the Netherlands, as amendments would have seen the salary level requirements increase from 50,000 euros to 70,000 euros. The decision also positively affects scientific researchers and workers under 30 years of age with a master’s degree as the proposed changes would have meant that they were no longer eligible for the ruling. A reduction in the basic requirements also means that teachers at international schools will be eligible for the ruling.

There is one negative consequence of the new ruling: expats under 30 who do not hold a Masters degree and whose salary is lower than 50,000 euros are no longer eligible. The ‘regular’ tax procedure to reclaim extraterritorial costs, however, will remain an option for these and other groups.

After complaint that the proposed changes would exclude young academics and other highly skilled migrant employees, Parliament agreed to lessen the restrictions:

  • Masters under 30: The minimum salary required for employees with a master’s degree under the age of 30 will remain at 38,000 euros per annum with the ruling.
  • Scientific researchers:  There will be no minimum required salary for scientific researchers employed by universities and government subsidised research institutions.
  • General salary requirement: A general minimum salary of approximately 50,000 euros will continue to be required for employees.

The aforementioned salary requirements are in line with the current requirements for the highly skilled migrant ruling.
