Payrolling versus working as a freelancer

Want to get started as a payroller?

Firstly, you need to register with Tentoo. You can do this quickly and simply via my.tentoo.nl (or by accessing the link on www.tentoo.nl). Once you have registered, you can start completing job sheets.

Registration

  • Click here to register
  • Complete the registration form in full
  • After you have filled in the form, you will see a pdf of the registration form on your screen which you need to print and sign
  • Send the signed registration form together with a copy of a valid form of identification (your passport or identity card including a copy of the reverse side) by email to inschrijvingen@tentoo.nl or by post to Tentoo, Postbus 2642, 1000 CP Amsterdam

After registration you will immediately receive login details for my.tentoo. You can also view your registration on my.tentoo under the heading 'Personal information'.

NB: one of the questions on the registration form is whether you wish to have the tax credit (heffingskorting) applied or not. The general tax credit (algemene heffingskorting) is a credit against income tax (loonbelasting) / national insurance contributions (premie volksverzekering) and can only be applied for one employer or benefits agency. It consists of the income tax credit (loonheffingskorting) and the working person's tax credit (arbeidskorting). The income tax credit and working person's tax credit are limited to a maximum annual amount. This amount is distributed equally over the period worked and applied as a credit.

When can I become self-employed / zzp'er?

There are no set criteria for this. The general principle is that you should have at least 3 clients, none of which should generate more than 70% of your income.

Which suits your situation best: payrolling or ZZP-Support?

That depends, among other things, on the number of hours you work. If you work more than 1225 hours on a self-employed (zzp) basis in 1 calendar year, you are entitled to a self-employed person's tax allowance. If you are able to work the required number of hours, it's more advantageous to work on a self-employed (zzp) basis. Of course you do give up the security of having the government's social insurance schemes (against unemployment (WW), sickness (ZW) and disability (WIA)).

If you don't work the required number of hours in 1 calendar year, the financial advantages of being a self-employed individual (zzp'er) in comparison with payrolling would be relatively insignificant, but you would once again still give up the rights to the government's social insurance schemes. Payrolling can also be a good solution if you have less than 3 clients or you want to be self-employed after having been on benefits without having to satisfy all the requirements imposed by the UWV. In that case your net earnings can also turn out to be higher. It's also possible to combine the 2 options.

If you would like advice on the structure that suits your situation best, give us a call on +31 (0)20 723 09 53.
