In the Netherlands, as in other EU countries, there is an obligation to notify the posting of employees.

Persons going to work in a country other than the one where they have tax residence are afraid that income earned abroad will be taxed twice, i.e. in the country of residence and in the State in which the work is carried out.

The EHIC Card is the most well-known document giving entitlement to treatment abroad. It gives the right to receive medical care only to the extent necessary. This means that the scope of treatment authorised by the EHIC is quite narrow. If you are planning a longer stay abroad, it’s better to obtain a document that will guarantee the possibility to benefit from medical care services in a much wider scope than the EHIC card. The S1 document is such a certificate.
