Corona crisis and Social security contributions

Most contractors have been working from home since the implementation of security measures against the Corona crisis in March 2020 and still continue to do so to this day. 

Many people who had come to the Netherlands for short term assignments have been forced or chose to go back to their country of origin while continuing to work for the Dutch client remotely. 

The SVB (Dutch organisation for implementation of national insurance schemes) has recently confirmed that the social security contributions, which every payrolled contractor in the Netherlands is obligated to pay, will remain payable in the Netherlands even if the work is carried out remotely. 

Contractors do not need to change anything in the way these contributions are being made for the time being.
