A Deal is a Deal.
United Expats of the Netherlands formed in April 2018 in response to a proposal of the Ministry of Finance to reduce the term length of the 30% tax rule to 5 years for all recipients – both current and new – beginning January 2019. This proposal breaks an existing deal between the Dutch government and highly skilled expats who are current recipients of policy.
We accept and support the right of the Dutch government to amend its tax legislation as it deems necessary. However, enforcing this policy change on current recipients will have significant and severe consequences for recipients and their families, the businesses that employ these professionals, and on the long term financial health of the Netherlands.
United Expats is working to encourage the government to stand by the deal they made with current recipients of the 30% tax ruling so that any changes apply to future expats, not to those already here.
