Questions related to the Dutch payroll-tax deduction ('loonheffingskorting')

In the Netherlands, you can obtain discount on your payroll-tax. In the most simple terms, this means that the first €7.074,- you earn a year, are tax-free.

Enabling your payroll-tax deduction means less tax will be withheld from your paychecks. You will end up with a higher net salary.

Not enabling your payroll-tax deduction means more tax is withheld from your paychecks. This doesn't mean that you have to pay the taxes: you'll receive the total amount back when filing for tax reduction with your annual income tax returns.

You can choose to enable your payroll-taxes deduction yourself during registration.

Come by our office! Here you can fill in the specific form, so we can turn off your payroll-tax deduction in our system for you.

The government will start requiring you to pay taxes as soon as you earn more than a certain threshold. This can be a certain amount in a week (> €136,04), or a certain amount in a quarter-year (>€1.768,50). As soon as you cross this threshold, we'll start paying taxes for you.
