Can I apply for the 30% ruling if I have a foreign employer?

5 years ago you helped me with applying for the 30% ruling which I was granted. My question is now, if I change employer and my future employer is a company based in Denmark, but I will remain living and working in the Netherlands do I then continue to pay tax in the Netherlands or will I have to pay tax in Denmark?

If I continue to pay tax in the Netherlands can I apply to keep my remaining 5 years of the 30% ruling?
I will continue to live and work here in the Netherlands and my job will remain the same, but the employer will be a Danish company rather than a Dutch company which I have now. My yearly income will be in access of eur 60.000.
If I can apply to keep my 30% ruling can you help me with the application again? I hope you can answer me. Many thanks in advance.
If you remain working in the Netherlands then you will continue to pay tax in the Netherlands on the salary you will earn. The tax treaty between the Netherlands and Denmark states that income from employment is taxed in the country where the work is done. So your Danish employer must put you on their Dutch payroll administration. If they are not yet registered as a foreign employer in the Netherlands and as such do not have a Dutch payroll administration yet, Expatax can assist with this. See also
When you are on a Dutch payroll administration we can request the tax authorities to grant you the 30% ruling for your employment with the Danish company.
