WHAT TO KNOW WHEN FREELANCING IN THE NETHERLANDS
Freelancers often prefer their employment situation because of the flexibility and the opportunity to work for and from wherever they prefer. However, there are a few administrative requirements that you must keep in mind when working as a freelancer.
Before anything, make sure you have a valid residence permit which makes it possible for you to live and work in the Netherlands. Also, you must register your business with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce. Because being a freelancer is no official legal business form in the Netherlands, you must choose a legal form closest to your preferences. The most used business form is an eenmanszaak (sole trader, known as a one-person business). If you have investors or a bigger turnover, you might find the BV better suited for you.
