Reimbursement of residence permit for family
Dear sir/ madam
I am a non-EU working in the Netherlands and I have been granted the 30% ruling. Can my employer reimburse the extension of the residence permit of my family members as extra territorial costs or do I have the right to be reimbursed free of tax even if I have the 30% ruling?
The costs of a residence permit are considered extra territorial costs and as such fall under the 30% ruling. This means that your employer can‘t pay you a tax free reimbursement of the cost of the residence permits on top of the tax free 30% allowance unless all the extra territorial costs together are more than the 30% allowance in a year.
