There are several options to expand your business in the Netherlands or Europe. For example, you can incorporate a Dutch legal entity. Another way to enter the Dutch market is to appoint a local European distributor, agent or franchisee. They have the knowledge of the local market and customs that could jump-start your business. It will allow manufacturers to do what they are good at: producing products and upholding the good reputation of the brand. Especially, if you want to do business abroad, the local knowledge of agents, distributors and franchisees can be beneficial.
