The Netherlands

Why the Netherlands?

The Netherlands, known as the gateway to Europe, boasts a competitive fiscal climate and friendly business environment in the heart of the continent. Its central location allows for easy penetration into markets throughout Europe, offering vast opportunities for trade and investment both within and beyond its borders.

The Netherlands is the 20th largest economy globally, partly owing to its strong economic performance and highly advanced transport infrastructure through Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport and the Port of Rotterdam.

Additionally, the Netherlands has a stable, flexible, well-educated and multilingual workforce, allowing businesses to operate efficiently when they set up in the country.

ISAE 3402 Type II qualification

TMF Netherlands has prolonged its existing ISAE 3402 Type II qualification, following official auditor sign-off on 31 January 2017 for the year 2016. This achievement results from our continued strive for improved standards of quality.

ISAE (International Standards for Assurance Engagements) 3402 came into effect in June 2011. A global assurance standard for reporting on controls at service organisations, the ISAE 3402 report qualifies as a Service Organisation Control (“SOC”) report. It is an extension and expansion of SAS 70 (the Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70), which defined the standards an auditor must employ in order to assess adequacy and operational effectiveness of the contracted internal controls of a service organisation.
