Historically, foreign companies operating in the Netherlands, onshore and offshore, had no obligation to be registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (DCC). However from the 1st July this year, a change in legislation aimed at preventing illegal staffing practices and reducing worker exploitation, means that if you hire out or provide staff to other companies in The Netherlands, you must now register with the DCC Trade Register.

The law applies to companies that provide workers as part of their normal business activities, as well as to companies that do so incidentally; meaning this activity is not part of the company’s day-to-day activities. The law applies to both domestic and foreign companies that provide workers to The Netherlands, both onshore and offshore.
