What is Payroll in the Netherlands?

Payroll is a specialized method of staffing in the Netherlands where an Employer of Record hires staff on your, the employer’s, behalf and then “leases” them to you for a set duration. Essentially, you are renting the staff from the Employer of Record firm. This arrangement offloads administrative tasks onto the payrolling companies, such as handling employment contracts, annual income statements, wage administration, and pension disbursements.
