Company Formation in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is a founding member of the European Union and the seventh-largest economy in the EU. Its GDP is strong and it is economically stable. As much as 90% of the population speaks English, partly as a result of a strong dependence on international trade. Companies earning less than €200,000/annum only pay 16% CIT, which will be reduced to 15% in 2021. Higher-earning enterprises benefit from equally competitive rates.
