How PEO Works

Requirements for employment in the Netherlands

Here are some of the legal and tax requirements for employment in the Netherlands:

Registering as an employer

Employers who will hire employees for the first time in the Netherlands are obliged to register as an employer with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration. By doing so, the employer will receive a payroll tax number. The Netherlands Chamber of Commerce KVK should also be informed about new hires with a change form 14.

Providing a written employment contract

An employment contract must be provided to the employee within the first month of work. The contract should outline the salary, working hours, holiday leave and public holidays, and holiday allowance.

Minimum wage laws

Employees must receive at least the minimum wage. There’s also a youth minimum wage which applies to employees aged between 15 and 21.

Establishing a payroll system

Employers have to set up a payroll system where they can manage their employees' salaries, taxes, and other mandatory deductions.

Ensuring healthy and safe work conditions

Employers must ensure that their employees work in safe conditions. The Netherlands Labour Authority can provide employers with information on the working conditions they have to meet.

Drawing up a risk inventory and evaluation (RI&E)

Once employees are hired, the employer is obliged to draw up a risk inventory and evaluation (RI&E) in which the employer has to state the risks that the employees might face and the measures to overcome them.

Paying social security contributions

Employers must deduct funds from their employees’ salaries and pay social security contributions on their behalf.

Applying for a permit for work or residence

Initially, employers are obliged to recruit employees in the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. If they fail to find employees there, they can extend their search to other countries.

When employing employees in other countries for less than three months, employees must apply for work permits. Employing a worker for more than three months requires applying for a combined permit for work and residence.

Please keep in mind that these requirements may differ based on factors such as the nature of the job, the employer, and individual circumstances.

Please note that all these requirements may vary depending on the job type, the employer and individual circumstances.
