Doing business in the Netherlands is a viable option for businesses looking to mitigate against any potential adverse effects of Brexit. With the new deadline of 31 October 2019 fast approaching, and a no-deal scenario looking likely, we are advising business owners to have contingency plans in place if they wish to operate/continue operating within the EU.
In the first of a series of international visits from fellow Prime Global member firms, we will be joined by Dutch accountancy firm, Visser & Visser. Working alongside Visser, we have helped set up a number of clients in the Netherlands to either help mitigate against Brexit and/or assist European expansion.
Joining us will be Erik Klop and Stephan Lodder who both act for businesses seeking to establish a presence in the Netherlands.
The advantages of doing business in the Netherlands are vast and can significantly improve cashflow by avoiding the burden of import VAT on good/services provided to other EU countries.
It also provides businesses with numerous logistical opportunities thanks to the world-famous ports and high-quality infrastructure connecting it to the rest of the EU.
Tax rates and incentives are competitive, payment systems are solid and reliable, and the corporate law system makes setting up a company very easy, so there is much to be said about doing business in the Netherlands.
Over lunch, Erik and Stephan will give a full overview of the considerations you need to take and will be on-hand to answer specific questions you have if this is something you are thinking about.
