How to calculate payroll tax
In the Netherlands, employers must take several factors into account when they calculate payroll tax. First of all, the amount of taxes due will depend on the employee’s status and contract. The duration of their stay in the Netherlands and their level of expertise may make them eligible for certain tax deductions and benefits. When you calculate your payroll tax, these considerations must be reflected in the calculation. Also, a complete overview is important. Each form of wages must be weighed when you calculate payroll tax. Besides monetary wages such as salary, overtime wage, holiday pay, bonuses and commissions, this also includes secondary wages such as allowances and provisions. In many cases, Dutch tax law will differ from tax laws in your home country. It is, however, necessary to follow the Dutch tax laws to the letter when you calculate payroll tax.
What to look for when you calculate payroll tax
Differences in your employees’ contracts and activities will affect the way you calculate payroll tax. Employees with a temporary contract, for example, are subject to different rules – as are those with specific skill sets that are currently underrepresented in the native Dutch job market. Each contract will impact the frequency and depth at which you calculate payroll tax, and the latter category is especially interesting given the tax benefits available to uniquely skilled expatriate workers. Thankfully, you don’t have to waste time working out the details of the Netherlands’ complicated tax regulations. The Dutch Umbrella Company can help you calculate your payroll tax efficiently and transparently.
