Furthermore, all of the above is most relevant for companies that already have legal status in the Netherlands. It could well be that your company is registered abroad and wishes to start a business here in the Netherlands, ie doing business in the Netherlands. There are many things to consider when doing business in the Netherlands, such as which legal forms is most suitable, the tax benefits, corporate governance, competition rules in the Netherlands, dispute resolutions etc.

There are a number of ways in which a foreign company, that is not registered in the Netherlands and frequently does business with companies in the Netherlands, can formalize their activities in the Netherlands. Examples of these kind of activities are as follows.

  • setting up a legal entity under the laws of the Netherlands
  • registering a foreign entity in the Netherlands for tax and legal purposes
  • entering into a joint-venture agreement with a company registered under the laws of the Netherlands
  • purchase of assets of or shares in a company registered under the laws of the Netherlands
  • setting up a structure for the commercial agreement for the sale of the products/services
  • setting up the corporate governance structure
  • protecting the intellectual property rights of the company
  • employment law issues etc
