Get further help and information

The Netherlands administration is incredibly helpful.

When it is about creating or managing your business, you can get endless help from various organizations and institutions. This is why we definitely recommend you to never hesitate to ask the competent authorities whenever you have a question about any aspect of your own freelance business.

Everything we state and write in our blog is based on our personal experience and cannot replace the official information delivered by the Dutch official institutions and organizations. Therefore, if you need to double check a piece of information, get more details, or just go the step further, feel free to reach out to them directly.

That being said, unofficial “centers” or groups can also be of tremendous value to start or run your freelance business. Why? Because theoretical content just can’t replace the experience of millions of individuals. So, if you have any question, want to develop your network, find new customers/suppliers or just meet other freelancers, just join the right community that fits your needs!
