In order to hire highly skilled migrants, the Dutch company needs to be a recognized sponsor with the IND.
The first step is to become a recognized sponsor. This process will take approx. 3 months and the IND leges/costs are € 1963
– for companies with less than 50 employees.
These costs will be paid upfront to them, otherwise they won’t make a decision.
We can assist with the application for recognized sponsor and the costs are € 500,- excl.
After approval of the recognized sponsor, you are able to hire highly skilled migrants.
The highly skilled migrant needs to receive a work/residence permit in order to work in the Netherlands. The IND is able to take 3 months’ time to make a decision. In general an answer is known within 6 weeks, but this is no guarantee.
We can arrange this application and the costs will be € 1350,- excl. VAT. If also his partner(family) want to come to the Netherlands, we can arrange this application too. Our costs for that family application is € 750,- excl.
The IND has gross salary requirements for highly skilled migrants which needs to be meet:
Expats younger than 30 years: € 3299,- excl. 8% holiday allowance, bonus etc.
Expats with an age of 30 and older: € 4500,- excl.
The IND charge leges and this is different per situation. In general it will be € 285,- per highly skilled migrant.
IND leges for the partner will be € 171,- and for a child under 18: € 57,-
30% tax rule
As you might already know, the 30% tax rule is a tax benefit for employees coming from abroad. Employers are allowed to provide 30% of the gross salary, tax-free. In other words, the full Dutch taxable salary is reduced to a 70% taxable salary. This means that a maximum of 30% of the salary will not be taxed. As of 2019 the duration of this special rule will be shortened from 8 to 5 years.
We can arrange the 30% tax rule application for € 350,- excl. VAT.
