The Kingdom of Netherlands is a densely populated country for its size, 17million people on 41,530 square kilometres. Nevertheless, the Netherlands remains the largest exporter of food and agriculture products in Europe, well known for its plants and cut flowers. One key to this success is the Dutch location, which provides prime access to markets in the United Kingdom and Germany, through the busiest port in Europe, Rotterdam.
Since the 16th century, shipping, trade, fishing, and banking have been leading sectors of the developed Dutch economy. Other major industries include machinery, chemicals, metallurgy, tourism, and electrical goods. The Diamond trade has also flourished as part of the Dutch ethical trade reputation.
Contracting in the Netherlands is easier than in most European Union countries, and thorough knowledge of Dutch tax laws can make this quite lucrative. The taxation system in the Netherlands is contractor friendly with a progressive structure, hence Life insurance, immigration, mortgage types and retirement planning are a few topics CXC can guide its clients on.
The Netherlands is recognised for being a country with good living standards and reasonable tax system. They have entered into Dual Taxation Treaties with some countries and tend to follow the UK on this. For foreign national contract workers, contracting in Guernsey, it would be wise to consult with CXC Global on the best way to structure, and how best to balance taxation.
