Frequently asked questions

We provide personalized knowledge and expertise specifically designed for your business goals

Is there a deadline to apply for the 30% ruling?

Yes. In order to be able to apply the 30% ruling retroactively to the start date of the employee’s employment, the application must be submitted within 4 months of the employee’ start date of employment. Otherwise the 30% ruling will be applicable as of the first day of the month following the month in which the application was submitted.

If an employee has lived in the Netherlands before, is he or she not eligible?
Is an employee who was a student in the Netherland still eligible for the 30% ruling?
