On Christmas Eve 2020, the EU and the UK reached an agreement. As of January 1, 2021, a number of major changes have taken place. The UK has terminated all EU policies and international agreements, ending the free movement of people, goods, services and capital between the UK and the EU.

European Access Plan: Your gateway to business in the EU The change means that UK-EU cross-border business activities are now subject to a number of trade barriers, including adjusted and strengthened border controls and additional administrative work. With relations between the UK and the EU changing radically, the impact on your business could be considerable. Establishing a Dutch resident company, such as the limited liability company (Dutch “BV”), or a permanent establishment in the Netherlands, can provide you with a simple and effective gateway to the EU, allowing you to continue to trade smoothly and successfully post Brexit. Along with our strategic alliance partner TLT LLP, we have developed the European Access Plan (EAP) - Your gateway to business in the EU for UK Companies interested in setting up a subsidiary, branch office, depot or warehouse in the Netherlands. The European Access Plan provides a summary of the plan’s key benefits, how Holla advocaten will work with you, and the important issues you will need to consider. Alternatively, please contact Robert van Muijen or Boris Emmerig at Holla advocaten for more information or to discuss your requirements.
