Is your company is interested in doing business abroad? But do you have trouble arranging the necessary financing? You could be eligible for funding by the Dutch Trade and Investment Fund.
DTIF offers loans, guarantees and export financing, helping your Dutch business take the next step towards achieving your international ambitions. Foreign companies are eligible when they meet various conditions.
DTIF consists of 3 components:
When do you qualify?
Your business qualifies for DTIF if:
- it is established in the Netherlands. Foreign companies qualify if they conduct substantial activities in our country. This means your Dutch operations generate sufficient revenues and profits through activities in the Netherlands for a co-financier to provide funding
- you have a solid business plan and will be in a position to repay the funding
- your project will be implemented in accordance with the OESO guidelines for international corporate social responsibility (IMVO) for multinational companies
