Employing staff in the Netherlands with Tentoo Payrolling

What is payrolling in the Netherlands?

Payrolling in the Netherlands is something different than just payroll – which is the process of paying a company’s employees. Payrolling (in Dutch) is a certain form of hiring staff. Tentoo – the payroll company – is the so called ‘legal employer’ or ‘employer of record of the staff working for you. We take all the employers’ administrative duties and risks out of your hands. Think of the labour contracts, salary administration and pension. But also continued payment in case of illness and the annual income statements.  


  • Risk-free employment
  • Tentoo continues salary payments during an employee’s sick leave
  • Flexible deployment of personnel
  • Payroll administration and payout are taken care of
  • Wage costs are pre-financed

Tentoo was founded in 1992 as a payroll company. To offer flexibility to employers (and freelancers) and to relieve them administratively. Meanwhile, we have become a complete HR service provider and our payroll services have also expanded significantly.

We provide all solutions to payroll and deploying (flexible) work staff, with greater freedom and fewer risks, so that you can take a solid step towards carefree entrepreneurship. This enables us to move with you even more effectively.

Why Tentoo?

With its payroll service, Tentoo has, from the very first day, supported entrepreneurs in the audiovisual sector, events agencies and media. Businesses from many other sectors have been added over the past years. Our payroll service is also a good match for call centres and contact centres, for instance, and all other businesses which require a flexible approach to the employee population.

What will change with our payroll service?

Almost nothing will change in the day-to-day practice. With our payroll service, you continue to recruit and substantively manage your employees yourself. We pay out the net salaries and remit payments for contributions and payroll taxes. We also provide payslips and process sickness and recovery notifications. And you are released of the obligation to continue paying salary during illness and released from chain liability and claims.


For whom is our payroll service an interesting solution?

For companies

You’re a foreign client coming to the Netherlands and seeking a convenient solution to payroll employees. Especially when you have less than 5 employees, payrolling your employees saves you a lot of administrative duties and employer risks. You also don’t have to get a payroll tax number, do tax returns or pay employee insurances yourself.

For professionals

You’re working and residing in the Netherlands, employed by a foreign client and therefore needing to be paid according to Dutch laws and regulations. For example: you’re working for a Swedish company while you’re based in the Netherlands, either working remotely or from an office.

"Tentoo not only saves us valuable time, but also ensures that our employees get everything they are entitled to."

Matthijs is founder and owner of Klondyke – web shop with antiquarian and second-hand books. For three decades, Matthijs has not only delivered beautiful books to enthusiasts worldwide, but also created a unique workplace for scholars and students who enjoy working among books.

With the growth of his business, Matthijs faced new challenges, especially in the field of personnel and payroll administration. “When you are busy doing business, you don’t have time to keep an eye on every month to see if someone’s contract is already expiring or if someone is entitled to a permanent contract. Tentoo takes care of all this, which saves me a lot of time.”

"The people at Tentoo get it, they know everything about payroll and I get quick answers to my questions."

Lisa Staal, theatre maker and author is touring the Netherlands with her inspiring theatre show ‘Schaamteloos Open’ for the next few years. As the crew members are not permanent employees, but of course need to be paid, she was looking for an easy solution for this and ended up at Tentoo.

“I can do a lot of things well, but administrative stuff? Help! I didn’t want to delve into this myself either, so I went online to find a solution. Well, it was a bit of a chore to end up with the right company for me. I tried 2 other companies, but a lot of things went wrong with these, and things were not made easier for me, but rather more difficult. After this hassle, I went looking again and found Tentoo. What a relief! The whole team and formula of Tentoo are top-notch. Since last year, my crew members have been paid super fast. The people working at Tentoo get it, they know everything about payroll, are smart, and I get quick answers to my questions.”

"For me, it is important to have influence in the collaboration. Customisation is the magic word. Tentoo is able to provide a tailor-made solution."

Marianne is the founder of Moneypenny. The agency where virtual assistants (VAs) find work-from-home assignments with clients looking for a flexible solution for their secretarial or marketing needs.

Moneypenny has been working with Tentoo for a few years. “We were looking for more customisation. We considered many but the customisation and personal approach at Tentoo really appealed to us.” Cost transparency and the online portal were also among the reasons for choosing Tentoo. “We have many VAs who have to go through an onboarding, which involves quite a bit. Tentoo’s portal is very efficient for these processes, the information is offered bite-sized and adapted to Moneypenny,” Marianne explains.

"With Tentoo as a partner, we ensure our costs remain low."

Kuno is the plant manager at Signode in Zwijndrecht, formerly Van Antwerpen Cartonnage – where products for the packaging industry and construction are made from rejected rolls of milk carton packaging material.

In addition to the permanent staff, there are also people working on a flexible basis at Signode, who are paid through Tentoo. Kuno says: “By paying our flexible staff through Tentoo, we save significantly on costs compared to temporary employment agencies. What I particularly appreciate about Tentoo is their transparent and informative approach. They provide clear insights into legal changes and obligations, something you do not always see with other service providers. The personal approach and in-depth explanation of laws and regulations by my contact at Tentoo make all the difference.”
