Employing non-Dutch staff

If you employ a non-Dutch employee without fulfilling all the obligations and requirements, there’s a considerable chance that your employee is working illegally in the Netherlands. The Dutch Tax and Customs Administration can impose huge fines on you for this. A lot of companies that want to be a good employer for their knowledge migrants without running any legal or financial risks opt for payrolling.

You yourself recruit an expat or knowledge migrant, and you then register him/her on our salary sheet. You’ll still be responsible for everyday management and guidance, staff planning, career development, performance interviews and training session content for this employee. Since your knowledge migrant is employed by Tentoo in a legal sense, we’re the ones who carry the employer’s obligations and the risks relating to employment law.

Legal employer

As a legal employer and an IND sponsor, we’re also the IND’s first point of contact. We take care of the following for you: obtaining the right work permits and residence permits, drawing up tailor-made employment contracts, registering your knowledge migrants with the Employee Insurance Agency and the Tax and Customs Administration, pension accrual, employee insurance schemes, salary payments, sick leave management and salary administration. Since we’re employment experts, we’re also here to tell you about all the Dutch tax regulations and help you with these regulations. Examples include the Extra-Territorial (‘ET’) scheme and the 30% scheme. These schemes provide non-Dutch employees with tax benefits so that they get paid more net salary.

IND sponsor

The only employers allowed to employ knowledge migrants are those who are sponsors recognised by the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (‘IND’). The procedure for becoming a recognised sponsor is complicated and expensive, and it takes a lot of time and energy. Tentoo has been a recognised IND sponsor for many years. Every year, a large number of employers use our services to engage knowledge migrants. This means they no longer have to worry about being an IND sponsor or about any of the relevant obligations and administrative duties. All they have to do is concentrate on working with their knowledge migrants.


We ensure that your non-Dutch employees can work completely legally in the Netherlands in conformity with Dutch employment legislation.

  • This means no risks for you under employment law
  • You’ll have hardly any administrative and legal obligations
  • You don’t have to be an IND sponsor
  • You don’t have to find your way around in the maze of work permits and residence permits
  • We’ll take care that your employees’ salary is paid on time, even if they’re off sick
  • Employees can profit from all the available tax benefits
