On the 23rd of June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union. The Brexit entails years of uncertainty about labor laws, taxes, exchange rates and the stability of the British economy. This is why more and more British companies are looking for another location to settle their company. There is a clear trend visible that more companies are choosing Amsterdam as their headquarters. Even in the run-up to the Brexit referendum, a number of companies already decided to head to Amsterdam.
Did the Brexit killed your deal? Are you thinking about moving your business to Amsterdam? Incorporate a Dutch limited liability company! We will tell you all about the benefits and how it works.
What is a Dutch limited liability company?
The Dutch limited liability company (besloten vennootschap met beperkte aansprakelijkheid) is called a “BV”. It is the equivalent of the English Limited and the American Limited Liability Company. The shareholders of the BV are not personally liable for acts performed on behalf of the BV. This is one of the reasons why the Dutch BV is the most preferred company type.
What are the benefits of a Dutch limited liability company?
A Dutch limited liability company has, amongst others, the following benefits:
- Your personal assets are protected against bankruptcy
- Many tax advantages (such as prevention of taxation on dividends, royalties and interests)
- Extensive and beneficial Double Tax Treaty network
- Access to entire European Union for business activities
