Occasionally no notification required for posted workers in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, the WagwEU (Terms of Employment Posted Workers in the European Union Act) has been in effect for some time. Just like in neighbouring countries, this requires service providers to report any foreign workers seconded in the Netherlands to a Dutch government authority, either in writing or online. However, it took a while for the Netherlands to set up such a system. The notification portal is now available for international secondments:
The mandatory notification applies to secondments to the Netherlands starting 1 March 2020 or later.
Furthermore, some exceptions to the notification requirements were announced. In some cases, notification is required annually only and some cases are not subject to mandatory notification. The exceptions apply to smaller businesses, incidental activities and self-employed contractors. You can read more about it in the updated overview below.
