The 30% tax ruling

If you move from abroad for a job at Radboud University, you may be eligible for the 30% tax ruling. Under this ruling, Radboud University is permitted to pay out 30% of your income as a tax-free allowance for a maximum of five years.

You will be eligible for the 30% tax ruling if: 

  1. You were based at least 150 km from the Dutch border for 16 out of the 24 months prior to your employment at Radboud University, and;
  2. You possess specific expertise that is rarely available or is not available in the Dutch labour market, and;
  3. You did not work in the Netherlands for at least 16 months prior to your employment at Radboud University. 

If you comply with these conditions, your personnel officer may begin the application process with the Belastingdienst (Dutch Tax Authorities). The final decision regarding your eligibility for the 30% tax ruling lies with the Dutch Tax Authorities. You can read more about the 30% tax ruling at the website of the Dutch Tax Authorities.
