    Thanks for trying guys, but I hope you understand that reading those two, completely different estimations, based on no evidence or calculations, does not convince me at all.

    I will try contacting some accountants in NL and probably provide the answer on my own...
    Cheers.

    I am a guy, but whatever.

    I would not call your answer comprehensive, rather: general.
    Just like others you just put some random numbers, 1000 or 2000 euros, 100-200%, very low, very high...
    How am I supposed to use those to calculate my income?

    I gave a precise hour rate and nobody provided any precise number out of that.
    Neither did nobody provide any details regarding the legal scheme I should use in my situation: BV, umbrella, perm, I don't know what else. Any comparison?

    Last but not least, I am really surprised by the general rudeness towards my post.
    Linking unrelated threads or general NL tax rules is not helpful at all. Neither is stating that I must have not used google or search.

    Really disappointed by this place so far...

    But regarding:

    Just because someone else might end up on this forum from google, like me, I will try to help them out with some useful info when I get it.

    Peace.

    What you have right now is a dream of 100 eur an hour, Amsterdam contractor market is as dead as London, why would someone hire you? Rather than a local resource ? Where agents are getting 1000’s of applicants per gig?

    So what you're saying is you want a bespoke, detailed quote for free from an anonymous internet forum.

    Working as an independent freelancer (e.g. what would be 'outside IR35 in the UK) is called 'ZZP' in the Netherlands. Belastingdienst has published a standard contract that fulfil what they consider as working on an independent basis.

    If not, then the hirer will require you to go on payroll. Most contracts are of the on-payroll kind.

    The 30% ruling aside, if it's only you, then operating as a sole trader is more tax beneficial in the Netherlands than operating through a BV. But if you go the BV route, you will be employed by the BV and I believe you would be able to apply for the 30% ruling. You'll be required to take at least €45,000 on Dutch PAYE in order to have any other benefit from operating through a BV, as any dividends you take would otherwise be deemed as being salary instead.

    First of all lets skip all the cost of living aspect. I would move to Amsterdam and live there for a while, so this is something I will calculate on my end after I understand the taxes.

    I have seen offers paying 80-100 eur/h. I am an it guy btw.

    It looks like the regular employment would be much simpler solution but I am not sure any company would agree for that.

    Thanks for any tips!
    You have seen offers or you did get offers?
    These rates are extremely rare in The Netherlands for IT roles. They are more likely to be in the €500 - 600 per day range, deduct the 30% tax, travel and living costs and you will find a £300 pd rate outside IR35 in your hometown has a better nett retention
