Tax: what are the best options for a nomadic Dutch freelancer?


by @maarten | 4yr  | 11 comments

Originally, I am from the Netherlands. Since january 2016, I have been working remotely all around the world. But even though I havenโ€™t been in the Netherlands this year, I am still paying taxes there. Iโ€™m still registered as a citizen.

I have to unregister in the Netherlands as a citizen. But if I donโ€™t register somewhere else, or have a freelance status or company somewhere else, I would still have to pay 50%+ taxes. This is, of course, not fun at all.

So I decided to move my business elsewhere. Either get freelancer status in another country, or create a business there to send invoices from. Which brings me to my question:

What is the best country tax-wise for a Dutch freelancer?

As of now, I found two solutions:

  • Have an agency set up a company in Bulgaria. It will kost 3000 euro a year, once 3300 euros and extra money if I want residency. And then of course 10% income tax on my earnings.
  • Have an agency set up a company in Dubai. It will cost around 2000 euro annually and 5000 euro once. No income tax.

Wether residency in an other country is required for the Dutch tax authority to not tax your world income, seems to be a grey area. However, if I unregister in Holland and send invoices from a company in a whole other country, it should be fine.

I have little or no experience. People with know-how: would you be so kind to comment on these options?

Are there alternatives I should consider?

I donโ€™t really like to hire an agency. Iโ€™d rather just fly to a country, fill out paperwork, incorporate there and from then on invoice from that company. If itโ€™s too bureaucratic, I wouldnโ€™t mind hiring a local lawyer or accountant to do it for me.

Do you know a country where there is no or a low income tax and this process is relatively easy and suitable for Dutch freelancers?

Professional advice is key here, but Iโ€™ll give you my thoughts on what you should do. Setup an offshore entity that you use to run your business. Which โ€œoffshoreโ€ jurisdiction is up to you - the topic has been discussed at length in other threads on this site, so Iโ€™d rather not โ€œflog a dead horseโ€. This entity can be the center of your professional universe. It receives payment for services rendered.

When you do find somewhere that you wish to establish residency in, setup an onshore entity in your new country. This can be what pays you (and it in turn invoices your offshore entity). Thereโ€™s a few other things to consider here, such as transfer pricing, but overall this is a fairly simple structure.

If you ever get sick of the place then you can dump your onshore entity and move on. Your offshore entity continues to function and receive payments.

Hope that helps.

Something that no one mentioned, but in my opinion should be thought off, and researched before making a decision is โ€œhealth insuranceโ€. @levelsio mentions on this topic that he pays NL taxes, because if for example he gets cancer the treatment would be paid by the government. I think you would want to avoid situations like with USA where you spend a couple of days in the hospital for some generic checkup, and get an invoice you would be paying for your whole life. I would suggest to research what securities you would receive to the country you will be moving to, or of any alternatives for those situations.

@ifdattic I have private insurance ready to go. Thereโ€™s a Dutch private insurer which caters to Dutchies outside the border. Their coverage is very similar to the Dutch health care system, only pre-existing conditions are excluded.

Since you are a dutch if you have a BV and decide to be non dutch resident, they will withdraw 15% from your dividends and give you back 60% of it, if you live in a EU country after 1 year. I live in France and this is how it works for me. For sure, i also pay french income tax.

I am surprised you talk about Bulgaria. In Bulgaria, the invoices have to be in Bulgarian and in BGN, so i hope you donโ€™t have many of them otherwise, it costs significant amount of money for accounting services. For instance, if you have micropayments and stuff like that.

Why donโ€™t you consider to incorporate in Ireland? Everything is in English. If you decide to live in a EU country or in a country where there is a tax treaty with ireland, you pay 12,5% of corporate tax and nothing on dividends. Then, you can live in bulgaria where the income tax is 10% but not costa rica because costa rica has no tax treaty with Ireland and Ireland would withdraw 20% of withholding tax if you would live in Panama or Costa Rica.

Nevertheless, in all cases, you have to move your websites from where you sell from netherlands to the place where your company is incorporated to be sure that the Belastibgdiesnt will not come to you and ask you for paying taxes saying you have a permanent establishment in the Nethertax because of web server.

I agree with nouk that Bulgarian accounting can be a hassle.
A friend of mine has recently gotten residency in Bulgaria and incorporated there and he told me has to file monthly tax statements and invoices also have to contain the amount in BGN.

If you get residency somewhere itโ€™s also important to establish some substance in that country so that it can be seen as the center of your life: spent some time, rent an apartment, get a phone subscription.
I was also advised to sell my house in the netherlands or permanently rent it. Get rid of your NL insurances, phone subscription.

For Panama the cost are 6000 usd to deposit in a local bank account for the friendly nations visa (still yours to show you have money. For the incorporating and assistance with the friendly nations visa around 5000$.
It will require multiple trips to Panama: first to open a bank account, second to get your temporarily visa and a few months later your permanent visa.
Iโ€™m still waiting for my permanent residency, after that you can also get your local cedula issued which is your local ID card.

For the police report you can request a โ€˜Verklaring Omtrent Gedragโ€™ for the purpose of emigration. They will issue this within a few days.

Iโ€™m not familiar with Ireland but I canโ€™t imagine it to be any easier or cheaper then a local company in Bulgaria if you have residency there and have that as your base of operation. You would probably have to register the Irish company in Bulgaria as well if that is your where you want to be liable for taxes. Not sure about this though.

Unless you maybe own physical servers somewhere in a datacenter having a website hosted in The Netherlands will not be much of an issue. Most important is: where you work and where you live.

For most digital nomads this will somewhat remain a grey area because of the moving around. Therefore just make sure you have most substance in the country of your residency. My friend who moved to Bulgaria told me about staying >6 months for the year to make sure he was a tax resident there.

Bulgaria:
About Bulgarian bookkeeping requirements, i have asked a chartered accountant in Bulgaria and she told me that since i issued invoices in english & in Euro, a copy should be issued in Bulgaria & in BGN. I forgot to say that the invoices have to be kept in Bulgaria. In other words, you have to fully hand your accounting to a Bulgarian accounting company.

Estonia:
The real tax rate in Estonia on distributed profit is 25%

I understand some people here are paid by Estonia or work for registered agents in Estonia and broadcast their propaganda. They want to fish rich western European people. But the French, Dutch, British, German people are not stupid, unfortunately for them.

I checked and the โ€˜Verklaring omtrent Gedragโ€™ can be done remotely after you unregister:
https://www.justis.nl/producten/vog/vog-aanvragen/aanvragen-via-justis.aspx

Incorporating in Panama is very easy and can be done remotely and will take 1-2 days after submitting documents to your agent.

Getting a (corporate) bank account is another story and involves some paperwork and can take weeks. Personal and corporate bank accounts both need to be opened in person. So plan for multiple visits to panama if you go for panama residency.

another thing to consider:

I dont know how your business is currently structured and your turnover but something to consider is that if you want to bank in Panama and (do a lot of transactions) is the wire transfer costs compared to Bulgaria which has Iban.

Hi Maarten,

Iโ€™m dutch myself and have been in your situation. You should definitely unregister yourself as soon as possible if you dont live in NL. Are you incorporated in a B.V.?

I recommend you consult with a dutch tax professional and dont take anyoneโ€™s advice for granted (including mine).

I donโ€™t see any value in the e-residency or incorporating in Estonia in your situation offered here.
E-residency is just a card and has nothing to do with residency and Estonian taxes are not the lowest so no reason at all to incorporate there unless you have regional ties.

If you want an EU company Bulgaria incorporation is a better option: 5% dividend tax and I believe no minimum salary for the director like in the Netherlands (youโ€™ll have to check). You should only pay a couple of hunderd euro max for everything including residency. 3000 euro is not a normal price at all.

If you unregister and live outside the Netherlands you should not be liable for taxes in the netherlands unless itโ€™s from property you own or a you generate local profits from a bar or something. For taxation purposes the place where you do business matters(โ€˜plaats van feitelijke leidingโ€™ in dutch).
However if you just unregister and come live again and register again in the netherlands within a short time(grey area, some say 10 year years to be safe) the tax man can argue that you never intended to really leave the netherlands and are liable for the taxes for the whole period.

About residency:

I have chosen to get residency in Panama because:
Itโ€™s easy to get permanent residency(friendly nations visa) ,has a territorial tax system (tax haven) and annual company fees are low and I only have to visit once every year to remain resident. On top of that a panama foundation offers optimal asset protection.
However banking can be a hassle and panamian banks are not known for their customer service.

I did not go for UAE because of the yearly costs, the residency requirements( 1 visit every 180 days) ,they dont issue permanent residency only 2 year extensions. However, banking deposits are guaranteed by the state and the country still is in good standing with the OECD as compared and not classified as a tax haven. I was quoted around 15k euro for the UAE residency(including company) by a few companies.

There are of course many other options for other low tax and zero tax countries but these Iโ€™ve done some research into personally.

For incorporating in UAE there is also difference between emirates for example: Ajman has no reporting requirements.

Hi Pim,

Thanks for your reply.
A tax lawyer told me that if you pay taxes somewhere, even if itโ€™s very little, the Dutch taxman is more likely to leave you alone in case of a return. Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m considering Bulgaria.
Due to some very helpful fellow nomads, I am in contact with two accounting firms who offer around 600 euros start-up cost and then a monthly fee of about 100-150. Iโ€™m still looking at other options, but this seems the safest one thus far. (although you are never sure in these matters)
Iโ€™m very glad you responded and I hope other Dutch nationals do as well, so I can get an idea of whatโ€™s the right approach.
Maybe Panama can be good as well, but I found online it takes a background check from your country of originโ€™s police force. Did you have to submit this too? And what were the costs you were looking at for the whole process?

Hi Maarten,

Another solution for your freelance company is Estonia. It has 20% tax on dividends but maintenance costs are very reasonable 600-1200 euros per year if you use a service like LeapIN (disclaimer, I work for LeapIN). We have Digital Nomads from over 60 countries and Iโ€™m sure our people can help you with the setup and tax related questions.

The setup costs are about 100 euros for the e-Residency (which I suggest you apply for asap) and then 190 euros for state fee for company registration. After that, LeapIN has packages from 50-100 euros/month depending on the type of business you are running and we provide a turn-key service on everything from accounting, legal compliances and taxes. You currently need to come to Estonia for opening up a bank account, but from January it should not be necessary anymore and everything can be done remotely.

I hope that helps and sorry for that promotion of one company :slight_smile:

Is there a map of countries open for travel now?

 

in Russia by @vernon99 | 41min 40 minutes ago | 4 comments

I have two passports from different countries and am trying to understand where can I travel now. Is there a publicly available map of countries open for visitors by passport country that I can use to see what are my options? I was pretty sure such a thing should exist, but cannot easily find any.

Maybe at least there're maps for specific passports? Mine are Russian and American.

If there's no such thing, I'd be down to build one, let me know if interested to collaborate :)

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Video chat coworking solutions?

I am new to working out of coworking spaces. My business entails a lot of video conferences. I haven't chosen a specific coworking space yet but generally, what are the potential solutions for this? I have a microphone and headphones but still fell like it may be inconsiderate to take the calls anywhere in the coworking space. For a solo person, what are some general solutions? Are there usually options to rent a private room by the hour with just enough room to set up my microphone and laptop? Sidenote: any coworking space recommendations in Florianapolis, Brazil would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?

 

in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 3d 2 days ago | 1 comment

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

Tax advisor for permanent nomads?


by @eljaques | 7d 6 days ago | 1 comment

I'm in need of a tax advisor who understands "our" typical situation. I'm all good on being legal on taxes at this point, but as I'm doing more investing and there's more compliance and KYC and such, it's getting more complicated to deal with this topic. Not living in my country of citizenship, company in another country, resident in yet another country, banking in a different country ... you know how it is, a pile of red flags.

Would be great to find a good tax advisor to sort things in a way that makes my situation as "explainable" and easily dealt with as possible. Any leads?

What investment options are open to e-resident?

I know from experience that if you have residential status in countries where IG (a broker) serves, you can buy stocks and other assets through this broker. But I wonder what doors to the stock market, asset market or broker can be unlocked with e-residency? Some banks open a terminal for customers to buy assets overseas too, is one of the e-residency friendly bank offering a good portfolio of assets to invest in?

Hello Everyone,

On January 8, I set off on my Nomadic Journeys. I have a one way ticket to Iceland booked for a film shoot, and a flight into mainland Europe on the 20th, and from there I have no idea, and I am completely on my own.

What advice do you have? Right now I am feeling everything, from bad to good about it all, really can feel that safety/wool from underneath me get pulled away, I know Iโ€™m jumping out of my shell here.

(To give some background, Iโ€™m starting my nomad journey after having started a successful business, so financially I am set. Itโ€™s the question personally, mentally how do you cope in the beginning of leaving everything and going?)

Any nomadic electronic music producers?


by @bavals | 3yr 3 years ago | 12 comments

I am curious if anyone here is traveling while also working on their electronic music productions. I know there are a few โ€œrealโ€ musicians here (respek!), but I am even more interested in finding my digital brethren.

If youโ€™re out there, how do you manage to do it? Granted, it has become a lot more feasible in the past 5 years or so, but not entirely problem-free.

Do you have a more comprehensive set up at your home base that complements your mobile studio or are you 100% mobile? Do you have a MIDI controller in your backpack/suitcase at all times? What about the monitors? While weโ€™re on the topic, would you maybe care to share your setup (DAW, interfaces, controllers, peripherals)?

Hereโ€™s my situation right now: MacBook Pro with Ableton Live, AKG headphones, a simple/tiny m-audio MIDI controller, an Apogee MiC for recording samples & voice. So far, nothing for the digital interface (apart from the built-in one) or monitors.

Best ship-to-them storage options any use here?


by @rumpusparable | 4yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

Hiya,

While I donโ€™t know when Iโ€™ll be settling down, I do see it eventually happening at some point if for no other reason for regular health care with age/problems.

So, when I chose to go nomad I got rid of everything except those special letters and trinkets Iโ€™d kept from growing up and past traveling that I wanted for my someday settled-home.

One of my Family memberโ€™s attic turn that initial set of items but I donโ€™t want to use his & his wifeโ€™s attic indefinitely over years/decade/whenevertheymove/etc. and/or be stuck out when any of the above happen before I open that little house or condo somewhere I think best.

So, do any of you use remote storage locations that are meant to receive shipments into for those on the road?

I come from and my main health care options are based in the US, so that would be ideal for me, but Iโ€™ll take whatever place seems best when it comes to the safety of the few things I put away.

Thanks!

What options are available for a pension plan for remote EU citizens, not registered as freelancers?


by @akisl | 4yr 4 years ago | 11 comments

Hi people,

Iโ€™m Greek, Iโ€™m now transitioning to fully remote. I think I have solved the first part: Creating a remote legal entity, a business bank account and having health insurance but I donโ€™t know how to solve the pension issue.

As an EU citizen, either your employer contributes X% of your gross salary to the national/private pension funds, or if you are a freelancer you pay the equivalent to the freelancer pension fund of your country, which in many cases is also attached to the national insurance fund.

So as a fully remote person, not registered as an employee or freelancer in any EU country, only having an EU company for invoicing and money transfers, where and how do you contribute to a pension fund for you? And what fund would that be?

Iโ€™m talking about a core pension fund, similar to the one that you would have if you were registered as an employee or freelancer in your country. Not ancillary pension funds offered by insurance companies, as these mostly focus on covering additional aspects that may not be covered by the core pension fund you have and they assume you already have a core pension fund.

Thank you so much for the help.

Options for DNs to stay and live in New Zealand for 1-2 years?


in New Zealand by @zoxel | 5yr 4 years ago | 2 comments

I already have a remote job that I like and do not want to change it. I was thinking of moving to NZ in order to live there for a while - may be one or two years or more if me and my wife like to be there.
But it looks like tourist visa will not allow me us to stay there more than 9 month and other visas require some job offer which is not easy to get. So I was thinking if there is any simple way to move there except finding a new job binded to location in NZ.
Me and my spouse are Russian citizens.

Is it possible to have children, while living a nomadic life?

 

by @manu | 5yr 4 years ago | 27 comments

Anyone here has an opinion on having children, while living a nomadic life?

Me and my GF have been living on the road for 2 years now. Our businesses are mostly established and we are considering having kids within the next 2 years. The questions that come to my mind:

  • Can you optimize raising children like a web startup (picking a good location, school, doing a bit of home schooling, choosing languages, etc)
  • Is anyone doing this right now? What are your experiences?
  • Where are good places to live with children? I guess we would rent a house with garden and hire a local nanny/household helper.
  • Do you think itโ€™s an advantage for kids to grow up internationally with both parents being around more than usually?

Let me know what you think. I know Graham Brown is doing it with his Japanese wife. Sadly he doesnโ€™t write too much about family matters. Then there is also a family blog, I only recently discovered, but didnโ€™t get a chance to read yet.
