    I am french and I just got a job offer in Amsterdam to start in January 2015. I was working in Paris before moving to Amsterdam in November to follow my girlfriend who found a job in Amsterdam

    I would like to know if I can apply to the 30 % ruling tax even if I didn’t come to the Netherlands because of a job offer. I followed my girlfriend. Therefore I was unemployed for 2 months and looked for a job during that time. I read you need to come from abroad to be eligible. I don’t know if I meet this requirement then.

    I am not registered to the city hall and don’t have a BSN number yet.

    I am under 30 years old and I will be earning 50 k€.

    Do you think I am eligible to the 30% ruling tax?

    thank you in advance for your reply.

      Dear Pierre, In order to be eligble for the 30% ruling you need to fulfill the 2 requirements, namely living more then 150 km from the Dutch border and earn more then € 36.378 on a yearly basis. If you are under 30 years you can earn € 27.653.

      In your case it is important that you were not registered at the Dutch municipality, since they will say you came voluntary to the Netherlands and you need to be recruited by a company in the Netherlands.
      Based on what you describe you should be able to apply for the 30% ruling. The best is to contact us by calling us +31 (0)85 0030140

    While living in Turkey, I have got a job offer from the Netherlands and we dediced to move with my fiancee. We have applied for the residence together with my fiancee, reportedly it is approved but we have not yet collected (so we have not yet arrived in the Netherlands).

    I am eligible for 30% rule, and I know my fiancee wont be eligible if she finds a job in the Netherlands after we arrive (even if she qualifies for other requirements). However, will she be eligible if she signs a contract with a Dutch employer today (assume she is eligible from other perspectives)? What will be the critical date, the residence permit date or arrival date vs. contract date?

      Dear Efe, the critical date is the moment when you have registered yourself and the family in the Dutch municipality register (So called GBA).
