Travel expense payments

Although it is not compulsory, most companies in The Netherlands reimburse the cost for your daily commuting to work. The policy regarding the amount to be compensated for public and private transport varies from company to company.

When travelling by private transport it is common to receive €0.19 cents per KM up to a certain KM distance per day. The KM distance per day is once again decided by the company. When travelling by public transport companies request invoices/receipts of your travel costs. The policy regarding travel expenses will be stated in your Assignment that you sign with us.

Citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland

If you are an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen, you do not need a residence permit to stay in the Netherlands if your stay is based on the EC Treaty. Your passport (or ID document) from the country of which you hold the nationality is evidence enough that you are permitted to stay in the Netherlands. You are not required to register with the IND.

Citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland fall under the laws and regulations of the EU, EEA and the treaty between the EU and Switzerland. These regulations are different from Dutch national law.
