Cross-border commuting

People living in Germany or Belgium employed by companies and institutions liable to pay tax and social contributions in the Netherlands. Figures are based on tax declaration data. Employers provide address and nationality data of their employees. The address defines a person’s country of residence, in this case Belgium or Germany. These data cannot be compared to statistics on cross-border workers compiled in the past, when only compulsory insured commuters in the border regions were taken into account.
