GATEWAY TO EUROPE

Doing business in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Spain

A European business offers endless possibilities and potential. From both a business and tax perspective, but also socially. Beautiful old cities, smooth integration and quick access to an enormous new sales market. The EU’s investment policy provides entrepreneurs with stability and legal certainty. Combined with favourable tax conditions, the euro and a thriving economy, this makes Europe an attractive destination for entrepreneurs who want to realise their international ambitions.

Doing business in Europe
The idea is simple: invest in a European country and secure a residence permit. The reality is not quite as straightforward, however. You face a flood of questions and requirements. Where will you be settling? How do you get what you need, what are the rules, how do you invest and how does immigration work? These are things that the INCO Business Group would be happy to take care of for you. Our legal experts advise you and help you set up your business or corporate structure. Immigration, visas and residence permits are also part of our services.

Full-service solution
The INCO Business Group would be happy to take on the responsibility for incorporating a business in the EU or setting up an international corporate structure. In addition to the paperwork involved in incorporating a company, we assist you in approaching a new sales market and outsourcing work. We also ensure that you quickly become acquainted with the culture, customs and habits in the country you have chosen. We make sure that you soon feel at home.

Doing business in the Netherlands
The Netherlands may be a small country, but it offers a great many advantages to entrepreneurs with international ambitions. The Netherlands is the most strategic location to enter the European markets, has a good business climate and excellent possibilities from a tax perspective. The head office of the INCO Business Group is located in the Netherlands. From here, we can register your Dutch business in any member state of the EU. And with the help of our worldwide offices, we can help you set up local companies in, for example, Belgium, Germany, Spain and the UK.

A flying start or slowly slowly
Are you an entrepreneur who wants to make a swift entrance on the European market? With the INCO Business Group, you can set up a company in multiple European member states, within one week and for less than € 5,000. You will then have direct access to the enormous potential sales market of the EU. If you would prefer to take things slowly to start, consider setting up virtual representation for your organisation. This enables you to launch a simple local marketing campaign or sound out your market potential. We help you with a registered office address for your business, a local telephone number, URL and an email address.
