Is there anybody who can help me understanding how I can pay my taxes in Holland?
I am a journalist and they offered me a free lance job in Holland (temp job- journalistic texts)
at the Chamber of Commerce they told me my profession is equal to a translator, with regards to fiscal matters.

Thanks for your help and your time

Do you live in Holland? Sep 24, 2005

Hi Iris,

do you live in Holland or Italy? I'm not an expert, but i think this is important regarding where you have to pay taxes.

I live in the Netherlands Sep 24, 2005

Thanks for your time- at the moment I live in the Netherlands: up to now I kept on collaborating with Italian newspapers (paying the taxes in Italy, as they wanted). This is the first job here and I want to be sure to pay in the correct way.

Country of residence Sep 26, 2005

In general you pay your (income) tax for your 'world' income in the country you reside. http://www.belastingdienst.nl/buitenland_uk/buitenland_uk-01.html
"Residents of the Netherlands and non-resident taxpayers opting for resident taxpayer status should report their entire worldwide income in their income tax returns."

You reside in the Netherlands if you registered yourself as living there (although this registration is I think not even mandatory for tax purposes), and if you (plan to) live in the country for more than 6 (?) months - I do not remember the exact number of days. So really, your Italian-based newspapers may have been wrong in that respect. You could go to your nearest 'belastingdienst' (tax authorities office) and get a tax number (this is your 'sofi' number, not a VAT number). At least that is the way it worked about 6 years ago.
You will find more info (in English) on the Belastingdienst site: http://www.belastingdienst.nl/buitenland_uk/

Ciao,
I am not sure to have fully understood the offer the company proposed you; in order to give you a realistic answer it would help me having more details: e.g.:

what kind of position they offered you? (permanent, in house, freelance...)
what kind of translation will you be asked to do? (Eng-it? Dutch-eng? which field?)
will you relocate in the Netherlands for ever? One year?
