Young master: do I need a master degree to apply for the 30% ruling?


Hi, I am eligible for all criteria of young master except for having a master degree. Is it a must or also applications with bachelor degree are welcome to apply for 30% ruling?


Having a master degree (which is recognized in the Netherlands as a master degree) is a must if you want to apply for the 30% ruling using the lower required salary condition. If you don't have a master degree the standard required salary is applicable. So you can still apply for the ruling but you will have to show a higher salary.
