Dutch Accountants Publish Doing Business in The Netherlands Guide
New Bloomberg study reveals the Netherlands is one of the best places in the world for doing business
With a recent study by the financial news agency Bloomberg (March 2012) revealing that the Netherlands is one of the best places in the world for doing business, MSI's Rotterdam accounting firm member deWaardKramer, has taken the opportunity to publish a new version of its Doing Business in the Netherlands guide.
International contact partner and tax lawyer Emiel Reijerse comments: "Only Hong Kong beats the Netherlands in the rankings. The Netherlands mainly scores well in terms of the cost of transporting goods, because of its ports and airports and its good access to the European hinterland.
"And with regards to the ease of starting a business, the Netherlands is streets ahead of every other country."
The results were confirmed by a major European study conducted by an accounting firm (March 2012). The Netherlands is shown to be one of the most attractive countries for foreign companies seeking to establish themselves in Europe.
In terms of operating costs, the Netherlands is the cheapest country after the UK and the best country in the eurozone. The study measured the most important cost items such as wage costs, set-up costs, transport costs, telecommunications, energy and taxes. The Netherlands scores highly in the areas of telecommunications, research and development (R&D), production processes and wage costs.
