In December 2018, the Single Digital Gateway came into force in the EU countries. The Single Digital Gateway is really a sequel and expansion of the EUGO network, in which all member states plus Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein provide a Point of Single Contact website, to make it easier for EU citizens to find information about moving, working and doing business in other EU countries. Under the SDG, as the Single Digital Gateway is abbreviated, all governmental organisations in a country have the task of providing their information in at least one widely known language beside their own; usually, English. The information is then disclosed via the YourEurope website.
YourEurope is the EU web portal designed to help individuals and businesses who want to live, work or do business in any of the EU countries. YourEurope offers:
- information on your basic rights under EU law;
- how these rights are implemented in each individual country (where information has been provided by the national authorities);
- free email or telephone contact with EU assistance services, to get more personalised or detailed help and advice.
PSC website for the Netherlands
Business.gov.nl is the Point of Single Contact (PSC) website for the Netherlands. This means we provide the Dutch information for the YourEurope portal, as well as publishing it on our website. Read more about us here.
For the purpose of doing business, the EUGO network will continue to exist to help businesses who want to expand or move their business into another EU country with relevant information. Each EU country offers a Point of Single Contact or PSC website, where information can be found on all aspects of doing business in that country. Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway participate in the EUGO network on a voluntary basis.
