The Netherlands

With its central location, excellent ports and logistics (including the largest port in Europe), highly skilled English-speaking workforce, and government incentives for foreign investment, The Netherlands stands as one of the best jurisdictions for cross-border expansion or start–up.

The Netherlands has a healthy, sable political and economic environment. The sectors with high investment potential in the Netherlands include computer software and services, car parts and accessories, seaport/airport security equipment and systems, transport and distribution, aircraft parts and associated machinery, medical equipment/supplies, and pollution control equipment.

The region has also set a target for 100% of its electricity to come from renewable sources by 2050.

Whilst there are no specific regulatory restrictions on foreign direct investment into the Netherlands, many investments are considered high-risk/high yield and specific considerations include high labour costs and a small internal market. It does however remain an attractive location for foreign investors, ranking 42/190 in the Ease of Doing Business Index.

The regulatory framework seeks to enhance the competitiveness of its business fabric and promote a creative and innovative environment for new business. However, the effectiveness of the system itself requires a deep knowledge of the context and the legislative details, both in tax and labour matters, which is why partnering with an expert outsourcing provider can be essential for expanding your business into the Netherlands.

Tax Specialists

The Dutch tax system represents one of the major attractions for international organisations wishing to start operating in the Netherlands, especially because of its simplicity and efficiency. Corporate income tax is currently 15% on the first €395,000, rising to 25.8% for amounts above this threshold. The country has dozens of double taxation treaties in place.

Dutch companies are taxed on their worldwide income, however, certain income types are eligible for tax exemption or can be excluded from the tax base. Non-resident companies are only taxed on their Dutch-sourced income. There are no special tax rates for foreign companies and no provincial or municipal corporate income taxes in the Netherlands.

We’re experts in international taxation and can help you to comply with the various tax requirements in The Netherlands. Let our expert tax team in The Netherlands take care of intricate local taxation rules, using our purpose built automation technology, so you and your operations remain tax compliant.

Payroll Specialists

Payroll requirements can be a minefield and adhering to local tax codes, variations on employment law, regulations, social security, benefits and bonuses can be burdensome and time-consuming – and can all drastically affect the payroll function.

Labour laws are rigid in The Netherlands, and its minimum wage is reviewed twice per year, with announcements made on 1 January and 1 July.

Total employer contributions to Social Security (National Insurance, Employee Insurance, Pension, etc.) total 27.6% of each employee’s gross wage.
