I concluded my M.Sc in Holland, and got a job within one year of concluding the M.Sc. Can I apply for the 30% ruling?
The 30% ruling is applicable if you are an incoming employee which means that you are (originally) recruited from abroad. Since you were already in the Netherlands to study you are hired locally and not an incoming employee. As a consequence you do not qualify for the 30% ruling.
Since 1 January 2012 there is one exemption if you have done your Phd in the Netherlands. In that case you will still be seen as recruited from abroad. For M.Sc. this exemption is however not applicable.
