Step-by-step process

Step 1: We’ll discuss a collaboration proposal with you

We will take care of payslips, tax payments, immigration, and more for your new employee. We will check for compliance, immigration status etc. We will provide a quote for the total costs of employment, with a breakdown of taxes, insurances and fees.

Step 2: We need to receive details of your new employee

The exact documentation depends, but it should include a copy of an ID document (from the country of origin).

Step 3: We will finalize the terms of employment and remuneration

Due to rules and regulations, there may be boundaries on the possible remuneration (e.g. minimum wage requirement for a work visa is €1725,-).

Step 4: We apply for the necessary permits from the IND

During this step of the process we will have to know more about who we will be submitting the application for. It is solely for the employee or also an accompanying partner and/or child(ren)? Either way, we’re here to help you.

Step 5: Finding your employee a home

During the process we help you with the search for housing in The Netherlands. With access to about 1500-2500 new houses annually we’re sure there will be a place just for you. We’ll help with reaching out to the right parties, filling out forms, gathering all necessary documents and applying for residency among other things.

Step 6: Dutch Employer of Record will keep in touch with the IND about the progress of the permits

For this step in the process a few weeks of lead time are expected. It is and always will be a governmental matter, and those can take some time.

Step 7: Finally Dutch Employer of Record will generate the employment contract after receiving the permits

During the final step in the process the hirer will sign the placement, as well as you signing the employment contract.

Start the procedure

    Dutch Employer of Record is not a recruiter. First, you will need a job in the Netherlands. After this, we can proceed with the sponsorship procedure. A work permit is valid only for the employer who makes the request. There is no general work permit for the Netherlands.
