The United Kingdom is one of the largest trading partners of the Netherlands. This means that investments are significant on both sides.
Since the Brexit referendum, many companies are – voluntary or forced – to relocate or invest in Europe. A large number of the companies have opted for the Netherlands. It is therefore important to know what to look for in such an investment and also how to deal with the cooperation with the English group partnerships and trading partners.
The other way around, it is also important for many Dutch companies to know where they stand in the field of tax and accounting in regard to their English activities, employees or business relations.
Brexit: moving to the Netherlands?
With Brexit becoming a reality and the uncertainties that come with it, it may be wise to relocate your operations. The Netherlands is a sensible choice. The Netherlands has one of the best (digital) infrastructures in the world and is located in the center of Europe with easy access to many other cosmopolitan cities such as Paris, London and Brussels. Schiphol Airport is the third busiest airport in Europe and offers excellent connections to other parts of the world. In addition, Rotterdam has one of the largest and busiest ports in the world, where about 4 million containers are processed annually. The Netherlands is therefore known as the gateway to Europe.
