If you intend to hire staff in the Netherlands, you will be subject to various regulations and obligations. Bol International has the expertise and experience required to assist you properly when setting up your Dutch organisation. We perform administrative payroll activities for over 1,100 employers in and outside the Netherlands. HRM specialists of Bol International can also assist and advise you as a domestic or foreign employer regarding personnel management. For example, assistance during absence due to illness (including prevention and assistance of absent employees) is a key employer issue in the Netherlands. Employers who fail to undertake the correction actions and measures risk severe sanctions. Bol International's specialists' local expertise assures you of expert and reliable advice if you have an issue with personnel in the Netherlands.
It is often hard to closely monitor and implement all local legal amendments in the Netherlands when based in a different country. The service that Bol International offers you assures you that everything is done correctly and in due course.
Let us take this burden off your hands and outsource your payroll administration work to us. We will prepare the calculations, prepare the payments and maintain contact with the Tax Department and UWV. These bodies check correct application of wage tax and employee insurance schemes. Incorrect application can be fined with penalties. Our assistance will prevent you from being confronted with this sort of nasty surprises.
Your payroll administration can offer a number of benefits. Bol can check for you whether you are eligible to any incentives or tax discounts, saving you money. We can also inform you about the Expense Allowance Scheme, allowing for a certain percentage of gross wages to be spent on tax-exempt allowances and benefits (this includes commuting allowance, work clothing, mobile telephone, etc).
Bol International can take over your entire payroll administration. Additionally, you can make use of our best-in-class online tools. This will allow you to view your payroll administration online, and enter data in the accounting files if necessary. Bol's professionals will check your entries and will back you up if you are temporarily or permanently unable to do the payroll administration yourself. Also, Bol provides you with a single point of contact, so you always have a familiar person to turn to.
In addition to the online tools for the payroll administration, you can also record personnel details such as holiday time, absence due to illness or training, and you can make use of an online management dashboard linking the data in your payroll administration to your financial accounting system. This information can be applied for daily management of your organisation in the Netherlands and monitoring the developments within the Dutch organisation.
As an employer in the Netherlands, you are subject to mandatory maintenance of the correct documentation in your personnel records. This includes employment contracts, regulations and personnel manuals, and residence and work permits for non-Dutch employees, if any Bol International can organise this on your behalf, ensuring compliance with this obligation. The online case file provides continuous access to these documents.
If you want to keep a grip on your payroll and personnel records in the Netherlands, and rest assured that all payroll administration and personnel records are in full compliance with legislation, then Bol International is the right partner for you. Feel free to contact one of our professionals.
As soon as you hire staff, you are a ‘withholding agent’ as an employer and you therefore have the obligation to have and update payroll records. Being a withholding agent means that you have to withhold amounts of tax and social security premiums from the employees’ wages. The payroll is the instrument the Tax Department uses to check your records. Bol International can support you professionally in this respect.
The UWV (Uitvoeringsinstituut Werknemersverzekeringen - Employee Insurance Agency) is the government body responsible for the implementation of social insurance and providing labour market and data services.
The UWV's tasks cover four areas:
The law states that a wage slip is to be provided only if it is different from the previous one. Changes may be caused by factors such as a change of salary grade, overtime worked, business mileage claimed or shift allowances.
