What is the 30% ruling for expats?
The 30% tax ruling in the Netherlands is for employees hired from abroad, providing they meet certain salary conditions. If eligible, expat employees can receive 30% of their salary as a tax-free allowance. This allowance is compensation for the costs of working in the Netherlands. It is available for up to five years.
