Broadstreet - Individual - 183 days and tax liability - 183 day rule in tax treaties

WHAT KIND OF BUSINESSES

Most tax treaties state that the country in which the employee physically works is entitled to levy income tax on the salary related to the work. The work state however does not have the right to levy if:

The employee spends 183 days or less during a certain period in the country, and
The employee is paid by or on behalf of an employer that is not tax resident in the work country, and
The employee does not work for a permanent establishment of the employer  in the work country.

Important observations to this rule:

  • Fulfilling any of the 3 conditions mentioned above leads to taxation rights for the work country.
  • The flipside of this rule is that, if the work country does not have taxation rights, there is no option to claim a pro rata exemption on the salary in the country of residence.
  • The number of days of physical presence in the work county is decisive, not the number of work days. The split of which country gets to tax which part however is made on actual work days.
  • The 183-day period is in some treaties measured as “in a calendar year”, in some “in a tax year” or , in newer treaties, “in any given 12 months period”.

I have used Broadstreet for around 10 years for tax purposes within Holland. I found them knowledgable, responsive and very professional. I would highly recommend them as an expat tax service.

Having been bounced around a few tax advisors and almost got my self in hot water by being told the wrong thing, I got a recommendation from another person who had a similar business structure to me. The Broadstreet advisor was efficient and thorough and provided a comprehensive and understandable summary of how to deal with my situation. Relocating between regimes with complex tax laws is never going to be straightforward, at least these guys do put the effort in ... beware of others who will make a suggestion and then disappear when it goes haywire!

Great services,thorough and real professionals. As an expat I highly recommend Broadstreet. I had some issues with my tax and they manage to solved the problem avoiding a penalty fee. If you don't want to worry about the complex Dutch Tax, I recommend to leave it on their hands to be sort it for you.
