The Netherlands is a full member of the EU, which means all businesses registered here benefit from international access and trade agreements provided by EU membership.

Access to trade and people

Netherlands-based businesses enjoy direct access to the entire 508.2 million inhabitant EU market, unimpeded by geopolitical borders. Similarly there are no barriers to employing citizens of any member state. Numerous trade agreements with countries from outside the EU provide clear rules and procedures for doing business with the rest of the world.

Efficient customs procedures

The Netherlands is especially efficient when it comes to customs processing of goods being imported into the EU. The country has a number of speedy entry points, many of which are either within or very close to the Northern Netherlands.
