For modern workers
How does it work legally and fiscally?
Freelanceverloning takes care of the administration for modern workers, for you as a customer. But we are not involved in the conditions that you agree with your client. In order to properly arrange your taxes and properly arrange all mandatory taxes, you will be employed by us as a “fictitious employee”, we obviously have nothing to say about you. Technically, the law describes that we as a withholding agent, even if there is no 'real/private law' employment relationship, you may designate us to pay the payroll tax, health insurance and employee premiums to the Tax Authorities for you. This way you automatically always comply with the DBA law and you prevent bogus self-employment.
The opting-in scheme
Article 4 of the Income Tax Act (IT) and articles 2g and 3 of the 1965 Income tax Implementation decree (Impl. dec). Based on this rule, an income tax payer can register with the withholding agent with the tax department and, thus, have tax deducted voluntarily. The rule for opting-in is only applicable to income tax and social security premiums.
The equivalent scheme
Article 7 of the IT act and article 2c and article 3 Impl. dec. Someone is fictionally employed if they, other than as an entrepreneur, work for a gross income of at least 2/5 of the legal minimum salary at least two days a week (article 4 letter e IT Act and 2c Impl. dec). This rule is also applicable to employee insurance based on article 5 of the Sickness Benefits Act, article 5 of the Unemployment Act, Article 5 WAO and article 8 WIA, with the "Assignment Cases" that are considered as employment. Article 6 of this article states that those who are obliged to pay the salary are seen as the employer.
1 Decree of December 24, 1986, establishes a measure in council as referred to in Article 5 of the Invalidity Insurance Act, Article 5 of the Sickness Benefits Act, and Article 5 of the Unemployment Insurance Act 1986,655, as last amended on June 14, 2017 Stb. 2017,270
