Under the Court ruling “Vander Elst”, the free movement of services within the European Union allows companies, registered in one of the EU members states, to send their non-EU employee on a temporary secondment to work in the Netherlands for a limited period of time. A work permit is not required, the activities do need to be notified to the UWV (Uitvoeringsinstituut Werknemersverzekeringen – the Dutch Public Employment Service) prior to undertaking the activities in the Netherlands. Limited conditions are applicable.
