What we can do for you

Getting started

What is the best legal entity for setting up your business in the Netherlands? How do you make it happen, and what are the regulations your company needs to abide by? KPMG International Business Support sorts it all out for you.

Accounting and reporting

Your business needs a smooth accounting and bookkeeping operation. We can either help you set it up, or you can appoint KPMG to handle the entire function on your behalf. You can also engage us for management reporting, providing insight into your business’s financial performance.


Dealing with Dutch reporting and other statutory compliance requirements, such as compiling your financial statements, can be time-consuming when you are new to them. We guide you through the rules, or take the burden completely off your shoulders.


There is no need to get bogged down in complex tax legislation. Our specialists will make sure your business meets its tax reporting obligations and filing deadlines, as well as keeping you up to date with new tax requirements and planning opportunities.

Audit Support

Your company may not need an audit but, if it does, you can rely on us to help make the annual auditing process as smooth as possible. This includes assisting you in preparing and presenting the financial information requested by your auditor.

Payroll and expats

We assist companies in every aspect of their payroll process, from handling the initial set-up and annual reporting requirements, to supporting the payment of salaries and social security contributions. We also have professionals who advise on expatriate tax issues.
