If you change employers you (together with the new employer) can request the tax authorities to grant the 30% ruling for your work for the new employer again. You can find more info in the knowledge base under 30% ruling.

Hi, can you explain exactly why/when select "social security in netherland" to calculate net salary? thanks
Comment by Arjan Enneman on Mon, May 30th, 2016 at 3:02 PM
If you work in the Netherlands you in principle fall under the Dutch social security and have to pay the applicable premiums. This is different if you are transfered to the Netherlands by a foreign employer and stay insured in the country where you come from. This is possible if you are transfered within the EU or from a country with which the Netherlands have a social security treaty. You would then have a, A1 statement (EU) or Certificate of coverage (non-EU) which would prove that you are insured in another country.

I need help understanding whether I can apply for the 30% tax rule and understand what my monthly net salary will be. I am moving from U.K. To Netherlands for a job, I have a European passport, a PhD and the gross salary I have been offered is EUR 48,500 per year including 8% holiday allowance. On the tax calculator i get 2 results whether or not I include the 30% tax rule. EUR 2,584 per month if I do NOT include the 30% rule or EUR 3,150 if I do include it. What will be my final bet salary per month? Can anyone help me undress and this better? Thank you D

An employer is able to make pro forma calculations of the offered salary (including and excluding 30% ruling). The employer should be able to tell you what your net salary is.
