Bolder Launch provides services to employers as expats. When we assist a company to employ, or relocate staff to the Netherlands, the employees typically also prefer to deal with us to discuss all the expat and relocation matters that they have to deal with.
In some cases you might even be a current expat in the Netherlands yourself, planning to finally start your own Dutch business. Also in these cases, our Launch Team is ready to assist!
As an expat in The Netherlands, you might sometimes feel that you need an army of lawyers to deal with all your relocation or ‘expat’ affairs. Even if you find a proper bookkeeper in The Netherlands, they might not understand your residency issues (from tax incentives to obtaining your work permit), or vice versa. You might find an immigration expert with no understanding of how to start or grow your business.
When you are moving to The Netherlands as an expat, there are many administrative affairs that you need to consider. Bolder Launch has developed a set of services, with fixed fees and clear processes that will allow you to get a full understanding of the requirements and costs that you need to consider.
Our Dutch Launch Team can assist expats from A to Z, offering a one-stop shop at competitive prices. Our incorporation experts ensure that you successfully launch your company in The Netherlands whilst getting connected in our vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Each expat who plans to start a company in The Netherlands, should consider:
- How to obtain or maintain the 30% tax ruling, once you decide to cancel your job, and start a company!
- How to convert your current work permit, or check if your current residency allows you to start a company
- If you should register a sole proprietorship, Private Limited (BV), or a partnership entity
- How to work as a contractor for Dutch companies, without being considered an ‘employee’
- Which banking requirements and conditions to consider as an expat
- How and when to file your income tax returns
- How to write a business plan to apply for a residency permit, or funding
- How to obtain funding for your new startup as expat
Using Bolder Launch’s expat services, you can be certain that all matters that could be relevant to you, will be discussed. In fact, Bolder Launch helps you to consider most of these matters, during the company formation phase without any extra charge! We can draft you a Tax-Legal Compliance timeline, contact us for more information.
Besides drafting a timeline, Bolder Launch can prepare a Legal Opinion or a Memorandum to cover your specific tax/legal situation and questions. We can provide you with a quote for such a report, based on the complexity of your case.
Once your company has been set up in the Netherlands, and you have covered your residency permit, we can assist you during every milestone, and perform the administrative duties of the company.
As a global entrepreneur, you should not underestimate the complexity of understanding a new tax or legal system. Early (bad) decisions that you make in your venture, can have (negative) consequences for your situation. For example, in case you own 24% of the shares of an overseas company, planning to expand in The Netherlands, the type of corporate structure will determine your options to obtain residency. Should you establish a subsidiary in the Netherlands, you would be able to get a residency permit as an employee within 2-3 weeks. But, if due to wrong advice you incorporated an independent company, then you would have to focus on the Entrepreneurs Visa. Which would cost you a lot more time and money.
In a similar way, we see expats that don’t correctly apply for the 30% Ruling, and pay too much taxes for years!
