Is it possible to build up a pension on the 30% allowance?

No, it is not possible to build up a pension on the extraterritorial reimbursement in the same way that it is not possible to do so on other free compensation or free provisions.

This means that if the 30% ruling is granted, the company pension will be based on the reduced taxable salary.

one of our expat employees working for us in nl has the 30% ruling. i am wondering how to calculate his reservations for holiday money, either based on the whole gross salary or just on the 70%?

just on the 70%. the 30% is a tax free allowance and can‘t therefore be the basis for the holiday allowance or other benefits.
