Artist Payroll Services: step by step

It’s very easy to get paid via Artist Payroll Services:

1. you make arrangements with your client concerning your performance(s)
2. provide us with all the necessary information
3: we send an invoice to your client
4. when they pay, we transfer your net salary to your bank account (usually within 21 days)

In order to use our services, we need the following information from you:

  • ID (no driver’s license)
  • Application form
  • Payroll agreement (pdf) *

* You can also send in an online assignment (Mijn Artiestenverloningen) or e-mail assignment

For more information and insight into the entire payroll process, we will explain everything in detail below.


Step 1: Make work agreements with your client

Make work agreements with your client, such as the date, place and rate of your performances. You can put these agreements in a payroll agreement of Artiestenverloningen. You can use our standard contracts that were drafted in consultation with lawyers of trade unions NTB and Kunstenbond (Art Association).

Note: Please sign the agreement and make sure that your client does the same. This way, you have a solid legal position in case of any disputes.

Step 2: Send in payroll assignment

Please send us all relevant information in order to payroll you, either via a standard agreement or an online assignment via Mijn Artiestenverloningen (only in Dutch). In order to register, we need a clear scan of your valid ID (no driver’s license).

 Step 3: Invoice procedure

After receiving your payroll assignment, we will send an invoice to your client. The client has 21 days to pay the invoice. Optionally, the client may agree to a different payment period, from 7 up to 90 days. If your client does not pay on time, they will receive a reminder invoice after three weeks; a second reminder after two additional weeks and finally a legal notice of default.

Step 4: Payment

When your client pays the invoice, we transfer your net salary to your bank account the same day. Provided that we have all your data, such as a valid passport copy and bank account number. You will receive a digital salary specification of your payrolling the same day.

Step 5: Income tax and social insurances

We transfer your income tax to the Dutch Tax Office and pay social insurance premiums to UWV (Institute for Employee Insurance). Therefore, you can rely on social benefits in case you become ill or unemployed.

 Step 6: Annual tax statement

After the end of each calendar year (in January), you receive an annual tax statement by e-mail. You need this for your income tax return to the Dutch Tax Office (from March 1).
