How will the 30% ruling in the Netherlands change?
If you are a highly-skilled worker living in the Netherlands, you are eligible to a tax advantage, the so-called 30% tax ruling. This advantage means that your employers can offer you 30% of your income tax-free to offset the costs of relocation. However, the government in the Netherlands has decided to change the 30% ruling. Starting January 1, 2019, expats will only be eligible for this tax advantage for five years, instead of eight years. Why this change to the 30% tax ruling? Because research has shown that the majority of expats are already claiming this advantage for just five years.
