International legal services for entrepeneurs

Our multidisciplinairy desks advise and assist you with various specialisations, including:

Setting up business in the Netherlands

Are you expanding your business in the Limburg province? Or setting up a branch office for your company? Successfully setting up a business in a new country is never easy. Even in the business-friendly region of Limburg. Think of the legal requirements, tax rates, permits and customs differences that need to be taken into account. Together with five partners Boels Zanders founded a Limburg business network: Smart Start Limburg.

Because each party is strongly connected to the Limburg province, foreign parties cannot only finish the main procedures quickly and single-channel but can also count on support in making the right choices prior to establishing in Limburg. From their own broad networks, each affiliated member of Smart Start Limburg can also connect the newcomers with other relevant organizations and agencies.
