The benefits of starting a business in the Netherlands
Many global investors and entrepreneurs consider starting a business in the Netherlands. In this guide we explore the Netherlands as a jurisdiction to start a company. Here are some of the benefits of establishing a business in Holland:
The participation exemption is among the most commonly used advantages with respect to taxation. This tax regulation exempts from tax holding entities owning at least five percent of a subsidiary in case of transfer of dividends. The regulation is known as “the directive on parent companies and subsidiaries”.
The BV holding structure
Entrepreneurs prefer to start their Netherlands businesses as holding structures for two principal reasons: risk and tax.
First, you reduce risk by operating via a holding structure in the Netherlands. A holding BV provides an additional layer of protection between the business owner, as an individual, and his/her business activities. BVs can also be structured to protect the capital of the active company. Accumulated pension provisions and profit are thus shielded from business risks.
Second, holding structures may provide tax advantages. The most significant one is the so-called participation exemption. It allows the owner to sell the company and transfer the profit to the holding BV without paying profit tax.
The Dutch stak structure
A Dutch Stak Structure is a Dutch Holding Structure, where a Dutch foundation acts as the sole shareholder of the Dutch Holding Company, thus becoming an asset protection vehicle, limits disclosure of ownership, functions as an inheritance planning vehicle, amongst others.
The foundation is another legal entity which can be used as a commercial entity, a holding entity or family funds. It is possible for a foundation to own shares and real estate and it is also allowed to obtain profits. Under certain strict conditions, a foundation can be exempt from Dutch taxes. A foundation can even be exempt from accounting and/or reporting requirements. When a foundation is concluded under a notary agreement, the foundation will be limited in liability.
