Support with your international ambitions

Doing business without borders

Doing business across borders means growth, but it also involves a lot. It brings new challenges. Challenges you do not yet know about, because the focus has been mainly on your products and/or services. What laws and regulations do I need to take into account? Are there any incentives I can make use of? How do I find the right partners? What about the culture in that country? And what about taxes? You will achieve a lot more if you look into all this.


We are here to help

We offer support to companies that want to expand their business internationally, but also to companies that have already been active on the international market.

Legal and fiscal matters

Whether you want to establish or expand your (head) office, production location, R&D, logistics operations or start-up in Zeeland, it is important to be well-advised on which legal form is best for you.

Subsidies and incentives

Subsidies and incentives can contribute significantly to the financing of your business in Zeeland. In addition to the favourable corporate tax in the Netherlands, both the regional and national government and Europe offer many reliable incentives from which you can benefit.

Selection of locations

Let us help you find the ideal location that is perfectly suitable for your business activities and matches your vision for the future.

Permit procedures

As an entrepreneur, you will naturally want to get started quickly. To this end, it is important that you apply for the correct permits and that you submit these correctly and as completely as possible. The help of an expert can make the permit process much easier.


A good business network is of vital importance for entrepreneurs. When you enter a new market, it is not always easy to find your way to the right contacts. We can help.
