What you need to consider if relocating to the Netherlands

A long-term stay in a country for more than 183 days will usually (and automatically lead)  to an unlimited tax liability for your world income. Some countries go even further and already assign this tax liability if you can permanently use your apartment (this can even be the room in your parent’s house or a regularly visited hotel), which you can access with your keys – known as “Schlüsselgewalt” in German-speaking countries. This rule establishes or maintains an unlimited Tax liability for your world income. If this subject interests you, you may learn more about it on our dedicated website for Taxation.

The often cited and generally used ” 183-Days Rule” is incorrect. It can only be used to a limited extent, as few countries (Germany) consider a personal tax liability if one spends more than 183 days within the country in two consecutive years, spanning two tax periods.

Therefore, one can only advise people interested in relocating their residence and not rely on start-up agencies and other jokers—the pitfalls are too great, and sound advice is required. A few advisors (specialized lawyers, accountants) have studied tax law for years, while others do a weekend seminar or attend Google University. Where do you feel better off?

What’s on offer on the internet is fantastic. Believe us – there is no point in having no tax residency/residence anywhere. If in doubt, you never gave up your original tax liability (in your country of birth) or are automatically subject to tax through your passport. 

Discussing your ideas regarding a company formation in the Netherlands and probably a relocation in detail makes sense. If you plan to form a company in the Netherlands, we will explain the advantages of incorporating a company in the Netherlands and living there.

TOP Jurisdiction for EU-Residence in Central-Europe

The Netherlands, however, offers ideal conditions for a tax residence. To obtain a tax residence, one need to stay more than 183 days in the Netherlands. With close links to other European countries, good flight connections and travel times of roughly two hours into the center of Europe, is this an ideal place to conduct business of any kind.

Of course, you are not allowed to stay in any other country for more than 183 days which would trigger an unlimited tax liability there. This concept is therefore ideal for everyone who can live and work flexibly (e.g. digital nomads).

If you come to us, you can rely on well-founded and legally sound advice. Together we will find your ideal life concept.
