The Netherlands - Child benefits

Our clients can also apply with us for child benefits from the Netherlands. In case that clients have applied on their own we can provide them consultation.

The Netherlands has three types of child benefits:
  • The Kinderbijslag, that depends only on the number of your children and their age
  • The Kindgebonden Budget, depending on the annual income
  • The Kinderopvangtoeslag, a refund for your extra expenditures like childcare centre (kindercentrum) or babysitters (gastouder)


Who can get Kinderbijslag?
Citizens of the European Union, citizens of countries from European Economic Area (EEA) and from Switzerland that pay Dutch social insurance (AKW) and have a child (or children) younger than 17. Also in case that a person received child benefit in their home country and the Dutch benefits would be higher, it is possible to get the difference paid from the Netherlands. To apply you need to have Burgerservicenummer of the child. If you do not have it, you can get it additionally. Kinderbijlag is paid off quarterly.

Who can get Kindgeboden Budget?
Only people entitled to Kinderbijslag can receive Kindgeboden Budget. The amount of Kindgeboden Budget depends on parents' total annual income: € 143,415 for 2018. Kindgeboden Budget is paid monthly.  

Who can get Kinderopvangtoeslag?
If you are paying for a childcare service or a babysitter, the government provides you a refund for these costs up to 7.5 euros per hour, with a ceiling of 230 euro per month per child.
