Our company was born in 1992 on the back of a beer coaster in a football canteen. Two friends asked themselves: How can we as a music band get paid faster and how can everyone get a fair share without hassle around administration and tax matters? The answer: payroll services. Now, a quarter of a century later, not much has fundamentally changed in our service. We still help entrepreneurs – companies and self-employed – with payments and administrative obligations.

Tentoo has changed a lot over the years though. The group of friends has grown into a team of more than 90 knowledge specialists. The football canteen has become a professional office in Amsterdam. The answer has expanded to include payroll services, freelance support, highly skilled migrants and HR services. And the beer coaster? It has been transformed into a clear vision and mission that guide our ideal: Carefree Entrepreneurship!


01 January 1992

The founders of Tentoo (Bert Limmen and Richard Molenaar) came up with the Payrolling Service in 1992.


01 September 2010

In September 2010, founders Richard and Bert stepped down from the board. Bert said, “We noticed that we were becoming a brake on the company ourselves. It’s better to take more distance.” To further professionalize the organization, Gosse Visser (who had been involved with Tentoo for years as a board member) was asked to take on the role of commercial director. Together with Paul den Ronden, an employee from the first hour, he formed the board.

Full service HR service provider

18 January 2016

Tentoo was known as a payroll provider for flexible personnel and of course as the creators of payroll in the Netherlands. But 24 years after our founding, we reached a point where we are more than just Payroll Professionals… That’s why from January 18th, 2016, we continued as a total provider of HR, Payroll, and self-employment services. This allowed us to provide even better support to our freelancers, self-employed professionals, and employers.

Creation of Brisker Group
