Who is the withholding agent/contribution payer?
If a non-resident employee is employed by a (sub)contractor based abroad who has contracted for work from a Netherlands-based entrepreneur, the foreign (sub)contractor will qualify as the withholding agent/contribution payer in any case in the following two situations:
if he has a permanent establishment in the Netherlands (e.g., an office, factory or quarry);
if he has a permanent representative resident or established in the Netherlands.
In addition, the non-resident (sub)contractor himself may request to be regarded as the withholding agent/contribution payer in the Netherlands.
In the following situation, a foreign contractor himself may request to be regarded as the withholding agent/contribution payer in the Netherlands. He executes a building commission in the Netherlands with a duration of nine months. This period is not long enough to bring about a permanent establishment (this would require twelve months). Consequently, the contractor is not a withholding agent/contribution payer. His staff, however, are taxable in the Netherlands: they work and/or sojourn in the Netherlands for a period longer than 183 days. They will have to register with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration and apply for a tax and national insurance number ('SOFI number'). Subsequently, they should pay the tax owed in the Netherlands themselves. The employer may elect to register in the Netherlands and to pay wage tax and contributions. This will make things a great deal easier for the employees: usually, there will be no need for them to pay an income tax assessment in the Netherlands or apply for a refund of tax already paid in their country of residence.
