Provide your feedback on the 30% ruling
Are you making use of the 30% ruling? We would love to hear from you! The Dutch Ministry of Finance is evaluating the 30% ruling and extraterritorial costs, and your perspective is crucial in assessing the impact of this regulation on skilled professionals like yourself. If you take this survey, you can provide valuable input to the Dutch Ministry. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes to complete the survey.
