What are the consequences for your taxes in the year you move?

In the year you move to another country, you are confronted with several means of tax levying. Which ones those are depends on your situation.

The period you live in the Netherlands

For the period that you live in the Netherlands, you are a resident taxpayer. You must then indicate all the income that you have worldwide. You owe taxes on that income. You can use several allowance schemes, such as certain exemptions, various deductible items or tax credits.

You are usually covered by social insurance in the Netherlands. You will pay the contributions for this through your tax assessment in the Netherlands.

The period you live outside the Netherlands

For the period that you do not live in the Netherlands but you have income in or from the Netherlands, you are a non-resident taxpayer. You will then pay taxes on the income that you have in or from the Netherlands. You cannot always make use of the allowance schemes. In addition, you cannot always make use of tax credits, or you may only receive part of a tax credit.

The year in which you move is important here:

You are not always covered by social insurance in the Netherlands. Whether you pay contributions for this through your tax assessment is dependent on whether you are insured in the Netherlands. For more information, please go to social security.

No income from the Netherlands

Do you live abroad but do you not have any income in or from the Netherlands? If so, you are not liable to pay tax in the Netherlands, nor are you insured in the Netherlands.
