Because of our staff’s fluency in German, MG-Tax focuses primarily on the German-speaking market. Whether our clients are German companies who incorporate branches in the Netherlands or Dutch companies who want to enter the German market, for example, they are all in good hands at MG-Tax. In addition, we never lose sight of the fact that starting up in another country will involve cultural differences, as well as differences in tax law.
MG-Tax has acquired a great deal of experience in assisting non-Dutch companies that are working on larger construction and other projects in the Netherlands. These cases involve various issues in the fields of corporation tax, individual income tax, wage tax, social security, and VAT.
All of this makes integrated advice indispensable. Differences between providing staff and acting as an employer in fact on the one hand, and engagement agreements and contracts on the other, can present significant problems. When these problems arise, MG-Tax works closely with our client’s home-country consultant. Experience has taught us that differences can be found not only in the laws and regulations of the home and work countries, but their respective authorities’ interpretation of those rules.
The experience we have amassed in our cross-border work between the Netherlands and Germany also helps us assist clients facing tax issues in other countries. After all, while specifics may differ, the overarching issues remain the same.
Naturally, MG-Tax is also excellently suited to providing advice in English.
