According to a study from consultancy firm IBM, 370 foreign companies entered the Dutch market in 2013, creating about 9200 new jobs. This number has never been higher before. A number of reasons can be mentioned for this. The tax climate is very interesting, generating more business advantages. The Netherlands have a solid infrastructure, both domestic and also towards other European countries, which offers enormous potential for non-European companies in geographical terms. And in terms of labor costs, the Dutch situation is friendlier than for example in Belgium or Germany. According to the survey, most of these new companies originate from the USA, however, also China and India find the Netherlands as their new country of expansion. Another survey from KPMG says that the Netherlands are the most attractive place for business newcomers in 2014. Businesses face lower costs setting up here than elsewhere in Western Europe. Apart from that, measures and incentives for research and development make the Netherlands very interesting for international businesses.
