Trustmoore’s role in fueling your expansion plans can take many forms. Below are just some of the ways we have helped our clients grow their international businesses.
Providing a Brexit-proof structure for a cross-border APAC fintech company
Trustmoore helped this client with the successful launch of its Dutch private limited company (B.V) in March 2020. The structure we established allowed the company to obtain the appropriate regulatory license, securing the Netherlands as a base for providing services across Europe in the wake of Brexit.
We continue to work with the company on governance requirements and assist with its (regulatory) filings.
Enabling a smooth relocation to the Netherlands for a Scandinavian manufacturer
As part of efforts to enhance its regional head-office activities in the Netherlands, this company needed to relocate key staff members to the center. Trustmoore coordinated the move, ensuring that relocation occurred in compliance with relevant immigration prerequisites.
Our team of local governance experts continues to manage financial and corporate housekeeping for the client’s legal entities in the Netherlands.
Realizing EU expansion plans for a US software company
A US provider of marketing software and facilities came to us in 2017 with ambitious European expansion plans. Already a big success in its home market, it needed support to set up a company in the Netherlands and initiate the European recruitment process.
Trustmoore provided local corporate governance support for the establishment of all the company’s European activities, allowing the group to seamlessly transition to an international platform while allowing its staff to remain focused on the day-to-day running of the business.
The company now has approximately 20 employees working from the Netherlands and successfully marketing the group’s products and services throughout Europe. We continue to provide support, facilitating compliance with corporate governance requirements.
Establishing international headquarters for a US medical company
For both practical and strategical reasons, this US medical group selected the Netherlands as the right jurisdiction for the headquarters of its fast-growing international activities.
Trustmoore supported the process from the outset, assisting with the set-up of the Dutch legal entity in 2011. Since then, we have helped the group enjoy rapid international growth. It now employs more than 40 people in the Netherlands and 700 people worldwide.
We support the company’s ongoing success by providing governance specialists, who provide hands-on help on the ground, while also ensuring that all local corporate and reporting requirements are met in a timely and accurate manner.
Launching Luxembourg operations for a French winemaker
Trustmoore helped this French client incorporate its Luxembourg company in order to develop marketing and branding activities in the market. We also worked with the company to gain its application for a Luxembourg business license, allowing it to trade commercially in the country.
We continue to work closely with the French winemaker to ensure it complies with the local governance requirements and completes all regulatory filings.
Achieving a soft landing in the Netherlands for a Danish distributor in super-quick time
This Danish nutritional product distributor needed a range of corporate services, such as a registered address, mail forwarding and secretarial support. It needed a provider that could set this up quickly and efficiently.
Trustmoore received a website inquiry from the company. The next day we held a positive introduction call and the day after we provided our proposal. Once the proposal was accepted, the client sent through its compliance documentation. By day 12 we had signed the contracts to formally commence our cooperation.
The Danish distributor commented on our proactive and professional approach. It resulted in a smooth and efficient transition to the Netherlands without any impact on the day-to-day running of the organization.
