An agency approached us with several cases of their contractors working in the Netherlands, and the agency was paying them to their UK limited companies. There was no local compliance work in the Netherlands. We spoke to contractors and offered them Dutch employment which they refused on the grounds of a reduction in their take-home pay and that they chose to run through their companies.

We proposed to the agency and the contractors they use ATA service (Access Tax and Accounting Ltd. is a member of Access Financial group of companies) of localising foreign limited companies to work abroad. The agency was sceptical and took the solution to one of our competitors whose Dutch advisers confirmed that what ATA was offering was lawful.

ATA speedily localised the contractors using their UK limited companies, so that agency, contractors and their clients were satisfied with the outcome, and the assignments were able to continue without risk.
