Dutch residence permit for all UK nationals and their family members

July 2nd, 2020|

If you are a British national or a family member of a British national, your right of residence in the Netherlands will not change during the transition period, from February 1, 2020 up to and including December 31, 2020. However, as of January 1, 2021, you need a Dutch residence permit to stay in the Netherlands. If you or your family member are registered as a British national in the Personal Records Database (BRP) and you live in the Netherlands, you will receive an invitation letter from the IND in the transition period (with a possible extension to July 1, 2021) to file an online application for a residence permit within 4 weeks. You will subsequently receive an invitation to schedule an appointment via the IND website for the delivery of biometric data. The IND will send your Dutch residence permit by courier to your home address. If you have any problems with the online application or you have not yet received a letter, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Notification obligation international posting (WagwEU) #2

June 29th, 2020|

Now that the international economy is slowly starting up again and countries are reopening their borders, we would like to remind you of the reporting obligation that applies in the Netherlands from 1 March 2020. Foreign employers who post employees from a member state of the European Union or EEA/Switzerland to work in the Netherlands are obliged to report this to the Dutch authorities. The foreign employer (service provider) must report this, a copy of which is automatically shared with the Dutch hirer (service recipient). The Dutch hirer has an obligation to check the notification and to report inaccuracies or not receiving the copy within five working days after the start of the activities in the Netherlands. Failure to report or incomplete reporting of the employment in question can be punished with a fine. Not every assignment must be reported. There are a number of exempted categories of employees. In the Netherlands a reporting obligation also applies for self-employed persons. The notification must be made through the online notification portal.
