Dutch Umbrella Company: Find out what your net salary will be


Thinking of moving to the Netherlands and need help negotiating a favourable employment contract? The Dutch Umbrella Company can give you the best indication of your net pay.

Negotiate the salary that will allow you to adjust to the cost of living abroad so that you can calmly prepare for your international assignment. Life overseas can be full of surprises, including your finances. You need to make sure that your salary package is enough to maintain your standard of living.

Net Salary

Look at your current net salary in the currency of the country where you live now. Before you agree to a salary from a company at an overseas location, compare the amount to what it will be worth in the country you are considering. Once you have a side-by-side comparison, you will be able to determine the minimum take-home pay you will need to maintain your current living standards.

Cost of living comparison

Before you move to the Netherlands, make sure you make a cost of living comparison to understand the differences between your current situation and the new adventure. Also, make sure you understand exactly what expenses will be handled by your company and which expenses are your responsibility.
