What are the tax consequences of the 30% tax ruling?
I am due to move to Amsterdam and my employer believes I will qualify. Does this ruling mean that I will effectively be tax free on earnings say of € 85,000 per annum, or is 30% taken as a deduction and I pay tax on the balance? If so, what would be the rate applied?
If the 30% ruling is granted to you your employer can pay (up to) 30% of the agreed salary as a tax free allowance. The remaining 70% is taxed based on the standard tax rates (see www.expatax.nl/tax-rates.php).
