Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in The Netherlands

You probably have questions. We’re here to answer them. Below, you’ll learn all the extra stuff you should probably know before putting together an independent contractor agreement for The Netherlands.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in The Netherlands?

An independent contractor agreement can be helpful for both the legal and practical aspects of hiring someone in The Netherlands. It can be a crucial tool for clearly defining the terms of your working relationship. You can’t go wrong with getting one, especially if you want to set in stone project details like payment, deadlines, and scope of work.

It’s not just a casual matter either—without legal protection for both the hirer and hiree, things can get out of control really fast. There are still companies who skip this step when hiring, and due to that, serious legal issues and complications are not a rare occurrence. Undefined and muddied-up terms of work can only lead to trouble. You’re almost always better-off with a written agreement.

What do contractor agreements in The Netherlands typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in The Netherlands (and, the rest of the world) can be broken up into two parts:

  • Contract-specific variables: This includes things like scope of work, rate, and deadline. They’re the project-specific variables that you’ll include with each contract, and are totally dependent on what type of work you’re hiring a contractor to do.
  • Everything else: Besides things like scope and deadline, every independent contractor agreement in The Netherlands should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for The Netherlands, sign up to Thera
What makes contractors different from employees in The Netherlands?

So what’s a better option when hiring remotely in The Netherlands, employees or contractors? Well, don't stress too much—it's completely up to you to classify your talent and choose the best option for your project! But just keep in mind how different the two can be. For example, contractors tend to have a more streamlined onboarding process and a bit more flexibility than employees. Those are just some of the reasons why companies that hire with Thera find it to be the better of two choices.

Here are a few of the key things that make contractors different from employees in The Netherlands:

  • Contractors can set their own schedules
  • Contractors can work with their own software and tools 
  • Contractors can work for other clients 
  • Contractors rarely receive benefits, like health insurance*

Hiring contractors is the faster, cheaper, more flexible way to hire abroad. And, when you use Thera, you’re able to hire & pay with an employment-like experience—no more messy spreadsheets and manual wire transfers.

*With Thera, you can get your contractors access to sign up for premium global health insurance, from SafetyWing, at a 50% discount.
