I have just been offered a services contract in the netherlands, for around 6 months.
I currently offer services/consulting via a Ltd company in the UK. Paying VAT and corporation tax in the UK.
I pay personal tax on both my salary and dividends in the UK as a director.
I am now in process of trying to understand how this would actually work if I were working in the Netherlands.
It seems that I have one real option, to go via a Contract Management Company (link in the chain), who will invoice the client and I will invoice them. They then require me to apply for a “Burger Services Number” or sofi number and a self employed VAR certificate.
In addition to this the Contract Management Company require I apply for an A1 certificate (previously called an E101) and also provide
Compliance certificate drawn up by your accountant every quarter, for them to release the funds.
I guess my general questions are:
1: would I as the individual be entitled to any kind of VAT rebates, within the Netherlands?
2: would I be required to pay personal tax on all the invoiced amounts (based on the 30% allowance, and general personal tax rates in the Netherlands) or can these be defered via the UK Limited company and issued as dividends and salary via the UK?
3: If the company is registered in the UK, can I work for the UK subsidiary, while being onsite in the Netherlands, but being a resident of the UK.
I would appreciate any help or advise that could assist me in making the best decision.
