About us

Carefree entrepreneurship with Tentoo, since 1992 

The founders of Tentoo (Bert Limmen and Richard Molenaar) came up with a service they later on called Payrolling. The service became so interesting that a complete industry emerged around it. For all employees of Tentoo the service still holds the same meaning as it did in 1992: eliminate worries, risks and barriers for freelancers and employers.

The start of Tentoo

With the service devised by them, they would make it easier for freelancers in The Netherlands to undertake and do business. Also 22 years ago it was hard to meet the demands of the tax agency. Moreover, is was a huge administrative burden for freelancers to get all the right papers etc. The idea of ​​Bert and Richard was a solution to their problems.

Creators of Payroll

An artist who produces music would rather not deal with administrative responsibilities and settling invoices. However, these are necessary tasks that require attention and accuracy. With the new service of Bert and Richard, this artist joined them on the payroll and he did not have to worry about bills, payments and difficult tax structures. They came up with the English term Payroll and their service providing 'payrolling' assistance was born.

Besides freelancers also employers

Tentoo continued to expand due to growing demand. Employers were able to manage their workforce with more flexibility under a stable employee framework. 

Since 1994, Bert and Richard were employer themselves. Their second employee was Paul den Ronden. Paul is still working at Tentoo, now as Managing Director.

Professionalization

10 years ago Richard and Bert stepped down from the management board. Bert: "We noticed that we became an obstacle for further growth of the company. Therefore it was important to take more distance from the day to day management."  They are still involved as owner and member of the board. To further professionalize the organization, Gosse Visser was invited to take on the role of Commercial Director. Gosse's involvement with Tentoo began years ago as a member of the board. Gosse and Paul form the direction of the company.

Supporting entrepreneurship

Tentoo started as a small idea with the intention to help others in their entrepreneurship. In earlier times freelancers handed in their job sheets every Friday and drank a beer with Paul. Also, the freelancers are not paid in cash anymore. What is left: Paul provides disbursement to all freelancers and flexworkers twice daily at 12:00 and 17:00.

In 21 years, Tentoo has proven that its services allow for a simpler working method. Carefree, so to speak. Over two decades ago Bert and Richard started with 5 freelancers on the books. Now the employees of Tentoo serve 22,000 freelancers and 11,000 companies.
