Doing Business in the Netherlands


In this publication we give you an informative view of the key aspects of doing business and investing in the Netherlands. We answer many questions that foreign businesses and entrepreneurs have when making their first venture into the Dutch market, based on our experience with establishing businesses in the Netherlands.

We are delighted that one of our cooperating partners, the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA), was willing to collaborate on this publication. As a result, this publication goes beyond tax advice and tax compliance. The chapter ‘Introduction to the Netherlands’ offers general information about the Netherlands, for example about the location, industries and business segments, living in the Netherlands and the workforce. The forms of business used in the Netherlands are also described. And there are separate sections for human resources, employment law, and audit and accountancy.

This guide can only provide a general overview of all the opportunities. If you need more information, our advisors will be very happy to assist you on an individual basis.
