The Netherlands Employer of Record

As a country with an extensive history in trading and with the largest seaport in Europe, the Netherlands offers plenty of opportunities for your business. Expanding into the Netherlands can lead to great profits, but the process can be quite complex. With our EOR-service, you will be able to start doing business in the Netherlands within days.

Most of the Dutch economy revolves around the service industry, with transportation, distribution, and business services as the greatest pillars. Another important stimulator of the Dutch economy is the industry sector resulting in the Netherlands being one of the world’s leading producers of agriculture products.

With natural gas as a valuable resource, the Netherlands is responsible for a quarter of the natural gas reserves in the European Union. Combined with the port of Rotterdam as the biggest seaport of Europe and the airport Schiphol as an important global hub, the Netherlands is a country filled with opportunity.

What is Employer of Record (EOR) in The Netherlands

As an EOR we conclude an agreement with both you and the employee who will be working for your company. We become the legal employer of your new workforce and are responsible for taxes, labor laws, and other local regulations that might be unfamiliar to you now. Your company maintains control over the working relationship, work ethics, tasks, and daily responsibilities of your employee.

How Dutch Employer of Record (EOR) Works

An Employer of Record (EOR) is the legal employer of your new workforce. Our agency in The Netherlands will legally hire your selected employees while you are responsible for day-to-day activities.

At Bradford Jacobs, we are currently operating in over a hundred countries in which we use local networks of experts. This allows us to gain expert knowledge of local laws and regulations, but also of recruitment customs and trends. By partnering with us as an EOR your company will have access to this expert knowledge too.

Our contract with your employee is 100% compliant with the Dutch labor laws and includes benefits such as insurance and pensions. We can hire, onboard, and manage your new employees in The Netherlands within days.

This is what we can do for you: 

  • We hire your new talent compliant with Dutch laws and regulations
  • We are responsible for the employment contract, HR (Human Resource), taxes, and payroll
  • We provide and arrange the required visa or work permits
  • Our team keeps your employee in the loop on holiday arrangements, benefits, or changes in labor laws
  • We keep you posted on local law changes and adapt to these changes compliantly
  • Your employees’ declarations are sent to us monthly. We will invoice you in time and once the payment is completed, we will deduct taxes and other contributions and guarantee your employees receive their salary on time
  • You remain in control of the daily activities and responsibilities of your employee

Using a Dutch Employer of Record (EOR) Provider Features and Benefits

The greatest benefit of using an EOR is probably that there is no necessity for you to set-up an entity in The Netherlands. This process can take months and during this period, it is unlikely that you have legal resources to pay your employees in The Netherlands resulting in a considerable delay in your global expansion plans.

Global expansion is an exciting step that often leads to a growing and successful business, but the red tape in a new country can be demotivating and frustrating. Imagine a way to globally expand your business without red tape and at low costs: that is what working with an EOR can do for you.

By letting us take care of the hard part, you can focus on the great part: expand your business into The Netherlands. These are the aspects we can take away from you:

  • Registering with the tax and social security office
  • Immerse yourself in the local laws, customs, and regulations
  • Get familiar with local labor benefits and other contract-related customs
  • Approach potential employees and make them an offer
  • Setting up the Payroll system compliantly
  • Submitting wage tax returns and national insurance forms
  • Staying up-to-date and compliant with changes in local regulations
  • Worrying about whether or not you are working compliantly with all laws, restrictions, and regulations
