E101 certificate

Are you an expat currently working on a temporary contract in the Netherlands? Or are you planning to come over the Netherlands to work? Be sure that you are fully aware of all rules and regulations under Dutch labour- and tax law. For expats from the EU working in the EU the E101 certificate is one of those items that is very important. Dutch Umbrella Company can help you sort out all details on getting everything right.  

What is an E101 certificate?

When you’re working in the Netherlands as an expat you are covered by Dutch social security legislation. Except when you have a E101 certificate. This is a document with which you are entitled to be socially insured in your native country. And therefore also required to pay social security premiums there instead of in the Netherlands. The certificate only applies to EEA residents working within the EEA.

Why you should apply?

Because applying for an E101 certificate can provide you with a lot of benefits. The most common consideration to obtain a certificate is that chances are fairly high you incur lower social security costs in your native country. As the Netherlands is a socially conscious country the social security system is quite comprehensive. You can end up paying a lot of premiums that decreases your net salary when you earn an income there. Applying for an E101 certificate may also avoid that you pay double social security premiums. Both in your native country and the country that you’re currently working as an expat.
