Changes to the 30% ruling from 2024

The 30% ruling is an income tax advantage for highly skilled migrants working in the Netherlands. It is intended as a reimbursement for expenses that expats incur when relocating to the Netherlands and working away from their homeland. If you have been granted the 30% ruling, then your employer may payout 30% of your wages, tax-free.

One of the primary conditions is that your salary is a certain amount after the 30% reduction. These requirements have been increased compared to 2023. In 2024, the minimum salary (after application of the 30% ruling) will be 46.954 euros and 35.048 euros if you are under 30 and have a master’s degree.

As of January 1, 2024, the 30% ruling will be limited. This will mean that new applicants will only be able to exempt 30% of their wages for the first 20 months. After which it will be reduced to 20% and after another 20 months it will be 10%.

This makes it even more crucial to manage your tax affairs efficiently. Expat Service is your go-to source for expert guidance during this transition. Expat Service will ensure that expats navigate the new regulations smoothly and maximise any potential tax benefits.
