30% ruling for highly skilled migrants

This means one 30% of your gross salary is paid to you tax-free. 70% of your salary on which you will be taxed. The 30% is paid to you as compensation for costs that you as an expat would not have had if you had stayed at home (the “extraterritorial costs”).

As if that were not enough, any international school fees that your employer pays in the Netherlands will also be tax free.

There is one important thing to remember: it is only valid for five years and as long as you continue to meet the criteria. Payingit International can handle the complete application for you!
