[2020-03-31] DUJAT Corona Crisis Webinar

This online  event is for members only. If your company is member of Dujat and you did not receive an invitation, please contact vangastel@dujat.nl.














To address the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak on employees, self-employed workers and businesses, the Dutch government announced a set of temporary economic relief measures.

In addition to that, companies active in the Netherlands are faced with a variety of legal and tax issues in connection to COVID-19.

In this DUJAT Corona Crisis Webinar (the first of 2 parts), Dujat is pleased to organize for its members this Webex seminar with experts from both Loyens & Loeff and Jones Day who will provide a practical overview of the Dutch government relief package and will dive into certain important legal and tax challenges that impact Japanese companies with Dutch business operations.

As part of the webinar, we will provide for opportunities to ask questions.

This online event will be accessible for Dujat members in the Netherlands and in Japan. Please note this invitation is only for part 1 of the webinar. The invitation for part 2 will follow later.
