[2020-09-01] Tax & Investment Update Seminar/Webinar: Developments around Netherland’s role as Gateway to Europe

This event is for invitees only. If your company is member of Dujat, please contact our office
and we will send you the invitation. 
The Netherlands has always played an important role as entry point to the European market and the Dutch government has always provided for Japanese companies a warm welcome.

There are many benefits for Japanese companies in setting up a Dutch company for investments in the Netherlands and as ‘hub’ for investments in other European countries. Also because of Brexit many Japanese companies have been considering to move to the Netherlands to remain in the European Union.

However, this Gateway to Europe business concept is under pressure, especially due to different tax developments in Europe and the Netherlands.

During this seminar/webinar, Loyens & Loeff will focus on those developments, discuss the issues, explain what is and is not relevant for Japanese companies and present possible solutions. Moreover, NFIA will explain about its efforts, achievements and outlook in attracting Japanese and other foreign investors to the Netherlands.

This will be the first time we organize a live event since the outbreak of COVID-19. However, only a maximum of 30 people can join. Therefore we ask you to limit your attendance to 1 person per company. We will strictly follow the RIVM guidelines to make sure this can take place in a safe and healthy environment. Also please refrain from attending if you are experiencing any symptoms of the coronavirus.
