Notify online

I often have assignments in the Netherlands. How do I notify?

In some cases, you only need to notify once a year.

You are eligible for a one-year notification in the following instances:

Small business

You can notify once a year if:

  • you employ 1 to 9 employees;
  • you are based within a 100-kilometre radius of the Dutch border;
  • you performed at least 3 transnational services in the Netherlands in the preceding calendar year or made a valid notification in the preceding calendar year; and
  • you are registered in the trade register, or a similar register in neighbouring countries.

You cannot use the one-year notification if you work in the construction sector, an employment agency, the temporary employment sector or personnel management.

Self-employed persons

You can notify once a year if:

  • you work in a sector subject to the notification obligation;
  • you are based within a 100-kilometre radius of the Dutch border;
  • you performed at least 3 transnational services in the Netherlands in the preceding calendar year or made a valid notification in the preceding calendar year; and
  • you are registered in the trade register, or a similar register in a neighbouring country.

You cannot use the one-year notification if you work in the construction sector, an employment agency, the temporary employment sector or personnel management.

Freight transport by road

You can use a one-year notification if you are work as an employer abroad or a self-employed person in the freight transport by road sector (General Industrial Classification of Economic Activities within the European Communities group H 49.4). This also applies if you provide services on behalf of a client or company based in the Netherlands.

You can find the sector, in which your work is defined under, on the website of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce.
