      An Overview On Incorporating a Company In Netherlands

      The Netherlands has emerged as the new hot favourite for launching a business in the wake of Brexit. For businesspeople and investors, the nation has various advantages. By consistently developing effective and new concepts, the Netherlands have risen to the top of many sectors. The Netherlands' membership in the EU undoubtedly plays a significant role in this because it has allowed them to forge exceptional relationships with the majority of other nations. You can freely import and export goods and services across the entire EU thanks to the European Single Market. In addition, the Netherlands' location turns out to have enormous logistical advantages.

        Benefits of Setting up a Business in Netherlands

        • Tax rates for the lowest income bracket will be reduced further, to 16.5 percent in 2020 and 15 percent in 2021
        • There is no value added tax (VAT) on transactions between European Union member states.
        • The Netherlands has the most double tax treaties in the world; the Netherlands is also one of the founding members of the EU
        • 93% of the native population speaks English; many are also fluent in German and French
        • Highly qualified labour force (3rd in the world for education level); excellent international business environment
        • The country welcomes foreign entrepreneurs and investors, ranging from small businesses to multinational corporations on the Fortune 500 list

        How Zolvit Helps You to Register a Netherland Company Online

        • Step 1: Consultation

          Once you begin the Netherlands company formation process, you must first determine whether you are legally allowed to do so. This includes consulting with an Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) lawyer, deciding the business operations and scope, and determining the best business entity for your needs.

        • Step 2: Business plan and company name

          Your proposed entity's name should be distinct, relevant, and suitable. You must make sure that the services advertised under your company name are those that you offer. We confirm the availability of the name with the local Chamber of Commerce unit once the name is finalised. We make an application for Name Reservation if it is accessible.

        • Step 3: Prepare the necessary paperwork for Netherland company registration.

          The following papers are required for the creation of a Netherland company:

          • Execution Deed
          • Application for Notary
          • Association Memorandum (MoA)
          • Association Articles (AoA)
          • Information about the shareholders and directors
          • Documentation of registered address
          • Information on the partners (for partnership)
          • A Partnership Accord (for partnership)
          • Collaboration Accord (for cooperates)
          • Any further documentation that may be required on an individual basis.
        • Step 4: Making a Netherland company registration application

          You must complete Form 8 and submit the official company incorporation application to the city Chamber of Commerce after the documents have been notarized.

        • Step 5: Registration of employers and taxes

          After the company has been registered, you must submit an application to the Tax Administration for tax and VAT registration. At the same time, you could also register your employer.

        • Step 6: Opening an Account for a Business

          The next action is to open a business bank account in the entity's name. If necessary, you must deposit the company's initial share capital as soon as the bank account is opened.

        • Step 7: Licenses & work permits

          To conduct business in the Netherlands, some companies would need particular licenses and/or work permits. To start business operations in the Netherlands, it is crucial to get certain documents as part of the company creation process, but with the help of Zolvit, every paper work for you will be hassle free!

        Compliances For Netherland-Incorporated Companies

        Even though all businesses must abide by Dutch law, there are some corporate compliances to be aware of:

        • At least yearly shareholder meetings must be held.
        • Based on the legal structure you registered, holding board meetings may be necessary.
        • All businesses in the Netherlands are required to submit yearly tax returns to the authorities.
        • Your business must register with the Dutch Trade Register eight days after establishment.
