European Headquarters in the Netherlands

Your doorway to pan-European success

In recent years, the Netherlands has solidly established itself as a magnet for foreign-owned companies and a leading site for European headquarters. A neutral, pro-business and economically stable country, the Netherlands offers companies a perfect climate to successfully compete in Europe. A supportive corporate tax structure leads the way, complemented by an abundance of multilingual, multiskilled employees and an excellent physical and telecommunications infrastructure. Not to mention strategic location - the Netherlands puts you at Europe's front door.

It's no wonder that a comprehensive study of potential European headquarters locations conducted by Ernst and Young, ranked the Netherlands so highly.

If you're considering a headquarters for your business operations in Europe, locating in the Netherlands offers considerable advantages. That's why over 400 many top North American companies - from small and mid-size to Fortune 500 leaders - have established their European headquarters here. Companies such as Cisco Systems, Eastman Chemical, Nike, Starbucks Coffee and Office Depot, to name just a few.

You don't have to be a Fortune 500 company to make a fortune in the Netherlands.

Although many large, global businesses do have headquarters in the Netherlands, we're a great place for smaller businesses to locate their European headquarters as well. The same benefits - pro-business tax structure, plentiful labor, developed infrastructures and quality of life - hold true for businesses of all sizes. Just ask companies like Genscape and Syniverse Technologies that started here with 20 or fewer employees. There's nothing small about the results businesses see here.
