Tax Services

The Dutch taxation system is quite complicated.

For instance the 30% ruling. The “30% ruling” is a tax benefit in the Netherlands for foreign employees. It allows an employer to pay 30% of the gross salary tax-free. This is meant to compensate for additional costs associated with working and living in the Netherlands. The ruling is applicable for a maximum of five years and has specific eligibility criteria. It increases the net amount received by the employee and reduces administrative burdens for employers.

Our legal counsels specialise in various types of law. In fact, you can come to us with complex issues concerning: labour law, corporate law, construction law, rental law, contract law, takeover assistance or debt collection, among others. But how do you know whether you need a legal counsel or a lawyer and what is the difference? A lawyer is also a legal counsel and can therefore also deal with legal issues. But a lawyer is also allowed to defend these issues in court and often handles more complex lawsuits. As a result, it is therefore more expensive to hire a law firm than a legal counsel.

Our legal counsels are experts in several areas of law and can find a suitable solution to any legal issue. Our legal counsels will guide you every step of the way, as we believe it is important to unburden you as much as possible.

Do you have a legal issue you need help with? Then contact our legal counsels for more information. We will think with you, provide appropriate tailor-made advice and help you with the next steps.
