In the Netherlands, the Identification Requirement Act applies. You must be able to present a valid identity document (passport or identity card) when registering. If You actually start, it is mandatory to be able to hand over Your proof of identity to employer if asked. You must also ensure that Your identification document is valid. So make sure You renew your document in time.
You have to have a valid European ID card/passport. Also we will need Your BSN document, bank account details in order to pay salary, and email address to send payslips and other information to You. We will need Your CV, too.
Everyone who has to pay tax in the Netherlands needs a Citizen Service Number (BSN). If You do not have it, we will organize an appointment to obtain it as soon as You arrive in the Netherlands.
If You already have a BSN number, we need this for our personnel file and also to be able to pay all payments.
The basic health insurance is mandatory for everyone who lives or works in the Netherlands. The basic insurance covers the standard costs of, ex.: the general practitioner, hospital or pharmacy. Additional health insurance is not compulsory.

There are two registration possibilities in the Netherlands: registration as a non – resident (RNI) and registration as a resident in the BRP; If you comply with the RNI rules but would prefer to register as a resident in the BRP, ask the municipal authority in the municipality where you will live if this is possible. Not all municipal authorities make this possible. More information you can find on this website https://www.abu.nl/welcome

In some cases we apply the ET – regeling scheme. The ABU “Collective Labor Agreement for temporary workers” includes a scheme that makes it possible to exchange gross wages for untaxed allowances and benefits for the so-called extraterritorial costs. These are the extra costs (ex. housing) of temporary workers from outside the Netherlands who (temporarily) work in the Netherlands. Only the wages that are above the legal minimum wage can be used for this. Once a labor migrant is permanently established in the Netherlands and his social center is also located in the Netherlands, ET – regeling scheme can not be applied. In addition, there is a maximum term of this scheme. At present, the scheme may be applied for a maximum of 5 years. After 5 years, exchanges may no longer take place, ET costs will be deducted from the net wage. Pay attention, this is 5 years after the first working day in The Netherlands.
StiPP has 2 Plans: Basic and Plus Plan. If you are 21 years old or older you start accruing pension in the Basic Plan immediately when after you start working.
