SALARIES IN THE NETHERLANDS
Employment law has dictated that employers hire people on an initial 6 month contract before making them permanent. This means that the employer assesses the employee’s skills and suitability before offering a permanent role. Once this period has passed employees gain full rights under Dutch employment law.
The total income tax on various income bands is 33.5%, 42% and 52%. The system is more complicated than other countries and your employer will be able to assist you with setting up your social security number (SOFI) at the local tax office. You will be required to show a valid proof of identity (not a driving licence). You also have to give your address. If you are not registered with the local council, then you may be asked for proof of address. Depending on your nationality, you may also be required to show a residence and/or work permit.
Salaries in the Netherlands are competitive and will rival locations in UK, Ireland and Germany. The income tax is approximately 33% for entry level roles and you should enquire what you net salary will be after tax. Cost of living in The Netherlands is reasonable with candidates affording a good standard of living after tax, rent and subsistence.
