Brewer Morris tax salary guide 2024 – the Netherlands

We are pleased to release our latest tax salary guide for 2024, based on a survey of tax professionals across the Netherlands.

Our salary guides support tax and finance leads, along with HR teams, across all sectors by providing accurate benchmarking of salaries. Working with our extensive network gives us valuable insight into hiring trends and candidate insights across the tax recruitment market.

Most tax teams in the Netherlands started 2024 in good shape as they have focused their time and energy on automation, process improvement and integration projects. All of this requires resources but ultimately frees up tax professionals to move away from the operational aspects of their role and invest in more strategic, value-add areas.

This creates a good level of interesting and challenging roles in the Netherlands and makes it an exciting time to be a tax professional in the region.

In this guide you’ll find more recruitment trends and statistics, salary benchmarking, a look ahead and an overview of our own DEI project: Belong25.

You can also get in touch with our tax recruitment team to discuss our guide.
