I do not reside in the Netherlands – what provisional assessments can I apply for?

Select your situation:

  • I am a qualifying non-resident taxpayer
    You are a qualifying non-resident taxpayer if you live in an EU country, in Liechtenstein, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, on Bonaire, Sint Eustatius or Saba, and pay tax on 90% or more of your total income in the Netherlands.

    Deductions and tax credits

    You have the same deductions and tax credits (Dutch only) as a resident of the Netherlands.

    Tax partner

    Your partner for tax purposes may, under certain conditions, apply for a provisional assessment to have (part of) the following tax credits paid out:

    • general tax credit
    • employed person’s tax credit
    • life-course leave tax credit
    • income-related combination tax credit

    • You pay sufficient taxes and possibly national insurance contributions in the Netherlands to have the tax credits paid.
