Chamber of commerce registration of (foreign) temporary employment agencies and other suppliers of workers - Waadi check

Companies which supply workers in the Netherlands must add this activity explicitely to their registration with the trade register of the Chamber of Commerce. This also applies to foreign companies offering services without a Dutch branch. Failing to do so may result in high administrative fines.

If you hire staff from a supplier who is not listed in the trade register, you may be fined as well. An employer who hires the services of a recruitment or contracting agency should therefore check whether the supplier has been registered correctly. This is possible by doing the Waadi check (Dutch) offered by the Chamber of Commerce. You need the Chamber of Commerce registration number of a company to perform the Waadi check. The acronym 'Waadi' derives from the applicable Act (Wet allocatie arbeidskrachten door intermediairs).

Therefore it is in the interest of both the agency and the hiring company that the agency is correctly registered. 

Expatax assist with the registration and can take care of the payroll administration of the recruitment or contracting agency. We also work with agencies who are fully registered and which pass the Waadi check. By offering high quality payroll and legal services we make sure that registration and payroll is done correctly.
