For expats: 30% ruling valid 5 years instead of 8 as of January 1st 2019
The tax advantage for highly skilled migrants working in The Netherlands, also known as the 30% ruling, is about to be changed. From January 1st 2019 it will be shortened from 8 years to 5 years. This change will affect not only newcomers, but also everyone that already benefits from the 30% ruling. The government plans will also affect the maximum loan capacity for expats.
The Dutch government asked research bureau Dialogic to evaluate the ruling. It turns out that 80% of employees that receive the tax advantage use it for five years or less. The other 20% is mostly planning a long-term stay in The Netherlands.
