DURATION OF THE 30% RULING
The 30% ruling will be valid for 8 years, if granted. Any time spent in the Netherlands previously, will be reduced from the period of 8 years. However, the Dutch government has announced they intend to reduce the maximum duration to 5 years, effective as of the first of January 2019. The impact for those who are currently benefiting the 30% ruling, is not clear yet.
