Benefits of the NEN 4400-2 certification
Companies certified according to the NEN-4400-2 standard distinguish themselves as reliable staffing organisations or subcontractors. These companies work with staff who are authorised to work in the Netherlands and pay taxes and social contributions correctly and according to Dutch laws and regulations.
For you as a company it is important to be certified. Your clients know that using the services of a NEN-4400-2 certified staffing organization or a subcontractor is vital for them. The reason for this is, that this makes sure that they are not at risk of liabilities as a consequence of the Dutch law (Wet Inlenersaansprakelijkheid and Wet Ketenaansprakelijkheid). In the future this will become even more important. Due to stricter legislation recently, more and more clients request NEN 4400-2 as a standard from their suppliers.
Objectives of NEN 4400-2
NEN 4400-2 is developed for foreign companies that perform work in the Netherlands. These are companies that provide staff or take on work.
The NEN 4400-2 standard specifies requirements for:
- your company;
- the personnel administration at your company;
- your payroll administration;
- the financial administration;
- the user/posting situation and outsourcing of work within your company.
Certification according to NEN 4400-2 restricts commercial risks in relation to employment, which can be limited. Consider, for instance, the risks under the Wages and Salaries Tax and Social Security Contributions Act (Liability of Subcontractors), and user company liability, and risks related to illegal employment. With NEN 4400-2 certification you know whether or not your company is compliant with Dutch legislation and regulations.
