SFM are passionate about continuously providing the best service and options for our clients which is why we extensively research the best jurisdictions. This month we are adding the Netherlands to our list of jurisdictions.

What are the benefits of establishing a company in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands is home to one of the World’s top financial centers and most international banks have offices in Amsterdam. They also have several specialist agencies that provide business funding. It is a stable jurisdiction due to it being a core member of the European Union, with its location offering many opportunities. The Netherlands is known for its accessibility into large markets - new trade routes and investment beyond the Netherlands borders can easily be established.

The country has maintained a 20th position as the largest economy in the world thanks to the Dutch trade mentality and strong transportation infrastructure. The Dutch workforce is stable, well educated, and fully bilingual, making it easy for recruitment purposes and dealing with other cultures, making the Netherlands more attractive compared to other Western European counties.

The Netherlands offers various financial incentives to foreign investors, encouraging business to the already advantageous Dutch economy. The country also has a liberal tax regime including generous participation exemption in which dividends received and capital gains realized are exempt from Dutch Corporate Income tax. There is also an extensive network of double tax treaties in the country.

Companies in the Netherlands have no nationality restrictions for shareholders and shareholder liability is restricted to their individual capital contribution.

The Netherlands Limited Liability Company Besloten Vennootschap (BV) is advantageously used by holding and financial companies for substantial tax regime benefits and for structuring international financial transactions, it is also widely considered as an efficient EU market penetration vehicle. The Netherlands is considered a very stable and well reputed jurisdiction, also offering a high level of privacy.

Forming an offshore company in the Netherlands can be done in as little as 2 weeks.
