23 March, 2017 Update on Dutch startup environment and impact of international tax developments on your business by Loyens & Loeff

This Seminar has unfortunately been postponed by Loyens & Loeff to a later date this autumn. We apologize for the inconvenience.


Founding or funding a startup in the Netherlands? The Startup Team of Loyens & Loeff will tell you about the practical do’s and don’ts

Are Dutch holding, financing and IP companies still viable for Nordic groups? Loyens & Loeff will update you on the impact of BEPS and EU tax developments on Nordic multinationals with business in the Netherlands

Current developments in the Dutch startup environment
If you are starting up a business in the Netherlands, or if you are investing in a startup, what are the legal and tax challenges and opportunities you should be aware of?
The Loyens & Loeff startup team will give insight in the current developments in the startup environment in the Netherlands, both from the perspective of startups and investors, with a particular focus on the Nordic countries. StartupAmsterdam – the public / private initiative working for and with the startup ecosystem of Amsterdam – will give an introduction

Impact of international tax developments on Nordic multinationals
In a rapidly changing international tax environment, it is key to understand the impact of recent developments on Nordic multinationals with businesses and corporate structures in the Netherlands. We will have a look at how various new measures against Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) are affecting these companies. For example, are Dutch holding, group financing and intellectual property companies still viable? And what is the impact of country-by-country reporting and the exchange of tax rulings?
