Starting a business in Amsterdam event

Many people dream of starting up their own business. And as start-up capital of Europe, Amsterdam is a great place to do it. However, navigating the various rules and regulations of tax and business law in the Netherlands can be tricky for international residents – especially if you don’t speak the language.

With that in mind, the Kamer van Koophandel (KvK, Chamber of Commerce) and IN Amsterdam have teamed up to offer a FREE informational session in English about starting a business in the Netherlands. The afternoon event will feature talks from IN Amsterdam and KvK representatives about the issues you need to be aware of when starting your own company - including information about different business types, taxes, international businesses, visa issues and services available to help you achieve your goals.

There will also be ample opportunity for you to ask questions, and meet other international residents here in Amsterdam. To allow enough time for questions and discussion, places at this event are strictly limited and offered on a first come, first served basis.

Due to its popularity, this will become a recurring event, with several sessions throughout the year. If you’d like to attend the next session, simply fill in the form below. You can also read about starting a business in Amsterdam and peruse the guide to going freelance.
