How easy is it to recruit staff in the Netherlands?

The unemployment rate in the Netherlands, although rising, is low by the standards of other EU member states. The Dutch are famously multi-lingual and their education and workplace skills are high.

What is the regulatory environment like in the Netherlands?

Reasonably easygoing with regard to foreign investment and taxation, but certainly not when it comes to labor laws. The Dutch labor market is heavily regulated and generally favors the employee. Companies employing more than 35 workers are legally required to establish a works council which must be consulted on a wide range of issues. If you need to dismiss an employee, count on the intervention of a civil court or government body. We advise you to take legal advice before entering into any kind of employment contract.

What is the corporate tax rate in the Netherlands?

The corporate tax rate is 25.5% on profits.
