Many MNEs base their operations in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. For instance by means of European or regional headquarters, a shared service centre, a customer care centre, a distribution and logistics centre or a research & development (R&D) facility.

An unbiased comparison

The Loyens & Loeff Investment Climate Comparison informs investors and their advisers about the main features of the investment climate in these countries. We do so in general, by setting out and comparing the main characteristics of the different jurisdictions in terms of corporate taxes, legal framework and certain employment related aspects. We present and compare these countries without a bias for one particular jurisdiction. This allows you to take an informed decision on which country best suits your business and market.
