Who am I
I’m Luann, an experienced entrepreneur and business advisor, specializing in helping foreigners and non-residents set up their businesses in the Netherlands.
Over the past 25 years, I have worked in many different companies, both in Asia and in Europe, and my career has taken me to businesses of various sizes, from listed plc to small start-ups.
I moved to the Netherlands 12 years ago and for the past 7 of them, I have worked as the founder of a Dutch Business Incorporation.
In my professional line of work, I have been fortunate enough to gain experience across various sectors and develop an in-depth understanding of different cultures and business fields.
As a foreigner myself, I noticed that some countries are far more welcome to foreigners than others, making them an ideal place for expats or non-residents to set up their new business. But my experience as a foreigner has also taught me about the challenges of navigating a system you are unfamiliar with.
In my last position in the Netherlands, my job involved assisting foreign directors with setting up a Dutch B.V. and ensuring it complied with the Dutch Civil code.
Many of the challenges my clients faced stemmed from the language barrier and cultural differences and while I found many Dutch professionals extended a degree of courtesy and patience, it still made the progress far more complicated and drawn out than necessary.
I have always been passionate about helping others and I decided to combine it with my extensive experience in navigating the Dutch system.
My goal today is to help foreign directors set up a Dutch B.V. as a non-resident in the simplest, most hassle-free way.
My Business approach
It is based on the foundations of transparency, trust, and mutual respect.
I pride myself on being up-front and supporting my clients, I understand the challenges and stress of navigating foreign systems, and I am here to make the process as simple and quick as possible
Open a bank account
Due to a change in bank regulations, more and more traditional banks do not allow foreign directors to open a bank account. Of course, this can be a daunting experience if you have set up a B.V. and then find that you cannot open a bank account to start trading.
Dutch Business Incorporation was born in 2013.
After seeing many incidents surrounding setting up a B.V., Dutch Business Incorporation was created to offer a better experience and solutions for international clients.
