30% ruling: salary requirements for 2022

The 30% ruling is a tax exemption for employees who are recruited from abroad to work in the Netherlands temporarily. One of the requirements to be eligible for the 30% ruling is that the international employee must have a specific expertise that is scarce in the Dutch labour market. Another important requirement is that the employee must meet a minimum annual salary obligation. This salary requirement is indexed annually. Here are the salary requirements for 2022.
