1. Establishment of Dutch companies or subsidiaries
When you want to set up a company abroad, there are many national rules and regulations you will have to deal with. This might prove to be very complicated for you as a foreigner, especially when you don’t speak the Dutch language and thus, cannot comprehend our laws.

2. Obtaining special permits or licenses you might need for your company activities
If you want to become active in a certain niche or business field that requires a special permit to conduct business in the Netherlands, then you need to become acquainted with all the regulations concerning this. If you choose to operate without such a permit or license, you risk receiving hefty fines or even criminal charges. You can read more about such permits on the website of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce and Tax Authorities, but you can also choose to outsource the entire process to obtain this permit to us. These permits can be necessary for a variety of reasons, such as public health and order, financial activities, employment and certain permissions from (local) authorities. We are able to assist you in obtaining such a permit or license. Next to that, our attorneys will be able to give you more information about different business types that operate in the country and which permit might or might not be necessary for your business endeavors. We can take care of the entire application process, which can save you a lot of time and research.
