Survey about the 30% ruling


Employees who come from abroad to work in the Netherlands often receive compensation for costs incurred while living outside their country of origin, known as ‘extraterritorial costs’. Examples of such costs are moving and travel costs, additional administrative costs, language training, and relatively higher expenses for rent, food and utilities in the Netherlands. The Dutch Ministry of Finance is evaluating the tax facilities for these extraterritorial costs, such as the 30% ruling and the ET regulation. The results of this survey contribute to the decision-making in Dutch politics.

We would like to invite you to fill in this survey. The employer survey is aimed at persons within the organization who are responsible for, for example, (international) talent recruitment or HR policy. The employee survey is aimed at persons who work or have worked in the Netherlands and moved here from abroad.
