Amsterdam is a world-renowned hub of technology and creativity and a magnet for startups, as well as established multinational corporations. If you want one of the most trendy business addresses in the world for your startup, you should start using a virtual office in Amsterdam! But where do you start?
The resilient Dutch economy is booming and consumer spending on the increase. Add to this the incredible creative and tech industries that are built around one of the world’s most advanced information technology infrastructures, then it’s easy to see why so many startups from all sectors flock to the Dutch capital to start a business in the Netherlands.
However, setting up an office can take lots of time and money, something that few startups have lots of. You will have to go through the whole process of registering a company, setting up a local bank account, registering for VAT and other local taxes, applying for relevant licenses, not to mention finding an office that you can afford in a location that’s best suited to your business. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be so hard to start a business in Amsterdam. By using a virtual office in Amsterdam, you can take the time, hassle, and importantly, the high cost out of starting a business in the Netherlands.
A virtual office?
Yes, a virtual office. It’s just like a regular office, but without the expenses like rent and utilities, furniture, equipment, and cleaning. A virtual office is a local business address and phone number in Amsterdam that you can use to receive mail and parcels of all sorts and receive calls from local or international customers. These can be used on business cards and email signatures for your startup and will add legitimacy to your business. A virtual office is very affordable, quick to set up, and perfect for startups that are still finding their feet or established businesses testing the waters of foreign markets to ‘try before they buy’.

What are the benefits of using a virtual office in Amsterdam?
Virtual offices are extremely popular and looking at all the benefits they provide, it’s easy to see why. Using a virtual office in Amsterdam is an affordable way to establish a business presence in the Netherlands and allows you to build your brand in the vibrant city of Amsterdam without the often heavy capital investment that opening a traditional brick-and-mortar office may require. Not only will you save money on things like office space rental, utilities, security staff, staff parking, stationery, and equipment maintenance, you and your staff will also save time and money by not having to commute every day.
In fact, because people don’t need to travel to and from the office every day, they will have more time to enjoy life — get exercise, spend time with their family, and take care of chores that often have to wait for the weekend due to long commuting times during the week. This makes for a happier, healthier, and more productive workforce with fewer sick days and days off.
Having a virtual office means you can work from anywhere in the world, and also enables you to employ the best talent from all over the world, without expensive relocation expenses. What’s more, using a virtual office in Amsterdam builds trust with local customers since they know they are dealing with a local business that has to comply with local laws.
