international business environment

The Netherlands is built for business

With over 50% of its GDP derived from international activities, the Netherlands has a global perspective that few nations can rival. It consistently ranks among the top countries to do business in, offering a winning combination of innovative thinking, business-oriented politics, a sound and sensible fiscal climate and a multi-lingual, motivated workforce.

superior logistics and technology

The Netherlands is connected to the world

Home to one of the world's largest internet exchange points (the Amsterdam Internet Exchange) and a state-of-the-art, 100% digital, advanced fiber-optic network, the Netherlands is optimized for the digital future. But the country also boasts an extensive modern highway system, high-speed rail networks and accessible waterways that physically connect it to all other countries in Europe.

excellent tax environment

The Netherlands is business-friendly

The Netherlands offers practical and clear tax solutions, especially the treatment of VAT, geared for international business, as well as establishing an overall attractive fiscal climate, particularly for multinational corporations. Agreements are already in place to ensure the avoidance of double taxation, and to regulate withholding taxes between Taiwan and the Netherlands.
