Globalisation is the key word describing the economic developments of the last decades. Not only goods and services move around the world, but people do as well.

If you are resident in the Netherlands you have to comply with Dutch laws.

One of your obligations is to pay taxes – not having Dutch nationality doesn’t mean you are exempt.

Tax laws that may apply to you are Income tax, VAT, Corporation tax, Wages tax.

In addition, you are legally obliged to take out at least basic health insurance for you and your family. On the other hand, depending on your personal circumstances, you may qualify for benefits such as health care, rent or child care.

If you can deal with these matters yourself – perfect! If not, R&S Consult can advise you.

On matters for which R&S Consult doesn’t have the expertise there are other consultants within the R&S network who can look after your interests.
