We also provide compliance and fiscal advice services in the corporate field. We process the administration of the company, compile annual reports, file publication reports and corporate income tax returns. Moreoever, we can advise you on your day-to-day fiscal needs.
Business start-up information
Starting, setting up or continuing a company in the Netherlands? We can advise you on this as well. And we prefer practical solutions wherever possible. So a foreign limited liability company may be the best way to start up or continue business in the Netherlands. However, a Dutch BV company or a Dutch one-man company (eenmanszaak) is also a good alternative. Please contact us to set up a meeting during which we can inform you about the various options available. We can also tell you more about our services and offer a quote. This first meeting is free of charge.
Setting up a branch
Opening a branch in the Netherlands is a way for you as a non-resident company to investigate the opportunities there might be in the Netherlands. You register with the Chamber of Commerce, no new entity is created and the rights and obligations that exist after the registration with the Chamber of Commerce are identical to those for the Dutch limited liability company, the BV company. The advantage is that you can start up quickly and, if you ever decide to discontinue the registration in the Netherlands, the registration is easily terminated. A ‘dormant’ registration is not possible in the Netherlands.
Foreign office in the Netherlands
A Dutch-registered foreign limited liability company, a Dutch one-man company (eenmanszaak) and of course the BV company can hire employees. For the labour agreement part we can refer you to a labour laywer, while we assist you with the fiscal aspects of the payroll administration. We can set up a payroll for a non-resident employer, resident employer in the Netherlands, or in Europe or globally. If the client wishes to have the payments effected via our third party bank account, we present one fund request to be paid to that account from which we make the payments to the employees (national or international) and to the tax office and other parties who may request payment. At the end of the year, the employee receives an overview for his or her tax return and you have already received monthly journals to update your bookkeeping with the costs for the Dutch employees.
The administration of the company can be carried out by us, or by you. If you would like to do the administration yourself, then this requires more than a basic knowledge of bookkeeping. We can also process the bookkeeping for you. We provide you with instructions on how to keep track of the documents and how and when to present them to us for the value added tax (VAT) return. We file the VAT return and inform you about the result: an amount either to be paid or to be refunded to you. At the end of the year the profit tax return is filed.
