Insurance and Taxes
When moving to The Netherlands, it is important to know whether you are considered a resident tax payer or non-resident tax payer. Both residents and non-residents are taxed on their taxable income. A number of criteria help determine your status as resident or non-resident.
For more information on insurance and taxes, please consult the Service Centre International staff website.
