Netherlands has a stable economy that provides an attractive environment for foreign businesses. There are plenty of opportunities for investment and the Dutch government also offers numerous incentives, turning the country into a genuine option for entrepreneurs that are willing to set up a company abroad.

Location and infrastructure
The strategic location in Central Europe that the Netherlands has offers great opportunities in terms of accessibility and infrastructure for European investors to come to Holland. Besides, the port of Rotterdam, which is Europe’s largest seaport, makes great connection by water, while the airport is also considered an important point for cargo and passenger transport on the European map.

Technology and innovation
The Dutch communications field has been permanently improved over time, resulting in one of the most modern technology nation for companies operating in this field. Besides, this is also the reason why the Dutch business environment is so favourable in terms of innovation, since technology is of a great help. No wonder that creativity and collaboration brought several partnerships on the way to success by directing foreign capital to innovative companies in Holland.

The Dutch tax system has a number of features that offers great benefits for foreign investors. For instance, the corporate income tax rate is 20% on the first 200,000 EURand 25% for taxable profits exceeding 200,000 EUR. Furthermore, when it comes to research and development, companies benefit from an only 5% corporate tax rate, as well as an allowance in form of wage tax and social security contribution deductions.
There are also some advantages in debt and loss structuring, as well as a wide tax treaty network, resulting in reduction of withholding taxes on dividends, interests and royalties.
Finally, there is a tax-free reimbursement of 30% of the employee's salary, provided that the employee has been recruited or assigned from abroad.

Business environment
Global business challenges turned Holland in a great destination for foreign investments, since the country provides several advantages for international companies. Facilities in terms of taxes and specialists in different fields are completed by an educated and motivated workforce. Dutch professionals are also among the most multilingual in the world, enabling them to successfully operate in companies across any industry, serving customers throughout the continent.
