NETHERLANDS: Changes to IN Amsterdam Service Fees for 2020

December 3, 2019

The IN Amsterdam service center has announced changes to its fee schedule for 2020.

What is IN Amsterdam?

IN Amsterdam (formerly Expatcenter Amsterdam) provides a one-stop-shop service for companies and their highly-skilled migrant employees, scientific researchers, international entrepreneurs and international graduates in the Amsterdam Area.

Services include residence and work permit procedures (including the start-up visa), registration with the municipality and the 30% tax ruling.

What are the Changes?

  • As of 1 January 2020, IN Amsterdam will increase all its rates by 20%.
  • From 2021 the fees will be annually indexed.
  • New businesses are no longer excluded from paying service fees during their first year in the Amsterdam Area, or for their first 10 employee applications (whichever occurred first). This change took effect on 1 July 2019.
  • Fees will apply for all children, rather than only the first two children as at present.
