Working for a foreign employer

Work for a foreign employer in the Netherlands hassle-free with Tentoo

Dutch people are increasingly being asked to work for an employer based outside the Netherlands within their own country. In this case, the foreign employer is required to tax the employee’s salary according to Dutch laws and regulations. As an employee, you are still eligible for tax benefits in the Netherlands (such as mortgage interest deduction and pension accrual). Tentoo makes this possible.

Pension accrual

Through Tentoo, you accrue pension after 26 weeks of work. This is also called the Basic Pension Scheme. It is legally required that everyone over the age of 21 who works for at least 26 weeks on a flexible or temporary employment contract accrues pension. Tentoo takes care of the registration with the pension fund; your (foreign) employer pays this pension premium after 26 weeks of work.

Do you work through Tentoo for your foreign employer for 78 weeks or more? Then you and your employer accrue pension through the Plus Pension Scheme.
