Company Formations in Netherlands
General Conditions for Company Formations in Netherlands
The Netherlands are part of the Benelux Countries with Germany as neighboring country. A good labour market has lead to a large community of expats and the tax framework in Netherlands is competitive compared to other countries in Central Europe. Foreigners, willing to relocate to the Netherlands, can enjoy a tax free deduction of up to 30% on their income. This is of course not comparable with Cyprus, Ireland or Malta, but given the proximity to Germany surely something to think about.
Furthermore, one can enjoy reasonable cost of living and low housing costs if living in a hot spot is not required. Hence, numerous international companies are already doing business in and from the Netherlands. More and more firms and entrepreneurs heard about the benefits of company formations in the Netherlands and setting set up subsidiaries and branches there.
After some years of turmoil, the banking sector fully recovered and newly formed companies obtain bank accounts at Internet banks or local banks.

Ideal Tax Framework for Holding Companies
Before Netherlands joined the European Union, the former “offshore” regulations were abolished. The Dutch legislation thus today fulfills all relevant EU standards, EU regulations, the OECD- standards, the FATF and the FSF.
Dutch companies are recognized throughout the European Union as EU companies with an extensive Tax Treaty Network. This circumstance is used particularly by holding companies. Netherlands nowadays has one of the most favourable Tax Regimes and competes within the EU with Cyprus, Ireland, Malta and such as Luxembourg at a split of the cost or with UK as a NON-EU Jurisdiction.
Why not speaking to us to about the advantages of a holding structure.
What you need to consider
A long-term stay in a country for more than 183 days will usually (and automatically lead) to an unlimited tax liability for your world income. Some countries go even further and already assign this tax liability if you can permanently use your own apartment (this can even be the room in your parents’ house or a regularly visited hotel) which you can access with your own keys – knows as “Schlüsselgewalt” in German speaking countries. This rule establishes or maintains an unlimited Tax liability for your world income. If this subject is of interest, you may find out more on our dedicated website for Taxation.
The often cited and in general used “183-Days-Rule” is not entirely correct. It can be only used to a limited extend as few countries (Germany) deem a personal tax liability if one spends in total more than 183 days within the country in two consecutive years, spanning two tax periods.
One can therefore only advise that people interested in relocating their place of residence not to rely on start-up agencies and other jokers – the pitfalls are simply too great and sound advice is required. A few advisors (specialized lawyers, accountants) study tax law for years, others do a weekend seminar or attend the Google University – where do you feel better off?
It’s amazing what’s on offer on the internet. Believe us – there is no point in having no tax residency/residence anywhere. If in doubt, you never gave up your original tax liability (in your country of birth) or you are automatically subject to tax through your passport.
If you have plans for company formations in the Netherlands it make sense to speak about your relocation in detail.
TOP Jurisdiction for EU-Residence in Central Europe
The Netherlands, however, offer good conditions for a tax residence. To obtain a tax residence, one need to stay more than 183 days in the Netherlands. With close links to other European countries, good flight connections and travel times of roughly two hours into the center of Europe, is this an ideal place to conduct business of any kind.
Of course, you are not allowed to stay in any other country for more than 183 days which would trigger an unlimited tax liability there. This concept is therefore ideal for everyone who can live and work flexibly (e.g. digital nomads).
If you come to us, you can rely on well-founded and legally sound advice. Together we will find your ideal life concept.
