The International Executive Services (IES) specialists at Meijburg & Co advise employers and seconded employees (expatriates) on the tax and social security aspects of cross-border employment. Our IES specialists provide advice not only concerning seconded employees, but regarding any employee affected by a cross-border issue. For instance, many employees live in one country and work in another indefinitely, while others might work regularly in more than one country. We also have a unique department that specializes in non-tax expatriate matters such as International HRM, obtaining visas and work / residence permits, and relocation services, Meijburg & Co Expatriate Services.
How can Meijburg & Co assist you?
We advise employees and their employers on the planning opportunities available for minimizing their tax burden, such as implementing a tax-efficient remuneration structure for seconded employees, and methods of reimbursing additional tax and social security costs arising from cross-border employment (e.g., tax equalization, tax protection). These services are offered to all cross-border employees, whether they are being seconded to or from the Netherlands.
Our advice covers the issues that may be relevant to cross-border employment, including equity-based compensation (stock options), salary in kind, and allowances for the extra costs incurred in a secondment situation, such as those relating to accommodation, relocation, and schooling.
We handle applications for the 30% ruling for employees arriving in the Netherlands.
We prepare personal income tax returns, and handle other compliance obligations with respect to employees.
