Why should I start a business in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands, as gateway to Europe, has a stable economy, a stable government and a good infrastructure. Not only has the country an extremely favourable business climate, but it is also a good location for expats to live.

As a result, the Netherlands has twelve ‘Fortune 500’ listed companies, and several major IT and datacenter companies have already set up business here. The Dutch economy is open to foreign investors and investments are not restricted by specific government regulations.

Entrepreneurs are given great leeway in establishing a business that suits their needs. On top of that, a highly skilled, multilingual and flexible work force and favourable tax regulations for businesses make the Netherlands an interesting place for foreign companies.
