Information meetings by the Bureau for German Affairs (BDZ)

If you start doing business in Germany, or if your employees start working in Germany, a lot will change with respect to social insurance, including for sickness or incapacity for work. Your employees’ Dutch old age pension (AOW pension) may also stop growing.

More detailed information is given in our information meetings. 

If you want to know more about the information meetings, click on a question below. 

We work together with other organisations, for example the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration. These meetings will give you detailed information about working across the border in Germany or the Netherlands. That way, you will know what arrangements to make.

The information we give includes:

  • social security for people working internationally
  • tax agreements between the Netherlands and Germany
  • a checklist for working in Germany
  • employment law

These meetings are for:

  • employers 
  • self-employed persons 
  • agents 
  • payroll companies 
  • HR staff

If you are a member of the professional association for tax advisers (beroepsvereniging RB), you will receive Permanent Education (PE) credits when you attend an information meeting.

The dates and locations of the next information meetings will be available here shortly.
