European Service Provision Employment

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.
