30% tax ruling - Who is a young master for whom a lower salary is required?
Article ID: 201 | Last Updated: Thu, Dec 10, 2015 at 9:55 PM
I have a question regarding the 30% tax ruling and the condition for young masters. I have recently moved to the Netherlands from Australia as a graduate from an Australian university and was wondering what qualifies as a young master? See attached web link which also discusses the young master clause-http://www.dutchnews.nl/news/archives/2011/11/minister_relaxes_30_ruling_pla.php.
I am very interested to know if I can qualify for the young masters ruling as I am a recent graduate and gained my position through obtaining my degree. Can you please contact me about this. Hope to hear from you.
A young master is a person who has a master degree from an institute for scientific research (in other words, a university), who is younger than 30 and earns a taxable salary of at least € 26,605 (gross salary including 30% ruling is then at least € 38,008 - figures 2012). For actual figures see http://www.expatax.nl/30ruling.php.
To prove that you have a master degree your diploma may have to be evaluated.
