Business.gov.nl is the Point of Single Contact (PSC) for resident and foreign entrepreneurs who want to establish a business or do business with the Netherlands. Business.gov.nl collaborates with several Dutch governmental and semi-governmental organisations to provide information about laws, rules and regulations, subsidies and more. For specific information, e.g. procedures and applications, we refer you to our partners. Together we offer a single unified answer from the Dutch public sector about doing business in the Netherlands.
The obligation to disclose information through one portal that is easily accessible to EU citizens and entrepreneurs is laid down in the Services Act. The website was launched in August 2017 and is an initiative of the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations.
Single Digital Gateway websites
Business.gov.nl and its Dutch counterpart Ondernemersplein are the Dutch Point of Single Contact websites: business portals that are part of the EU ambition to improve the internal market via a Single Digital Gateway (SDG). As a PSC, Business.gov.nl offers EU citizens centralised access to business information, procedures and assistance in the Netherlands in a non-discriminatory way. All PSCs together form the EUGO network. See the European Commission website for more information about the PSCs and the EUGO network.
On our partners page you can find several other governmental and non-governmental organisations that may help you find your way around the Dutch business landscape. For questions or remarks on the content, please contact our partners via the contact page.
