Facilitating Intra-Corporate Transfers to the Netherlands

For UK-NL assignments

Planning a transfer within your organization to the Netherlands can be overwhelming for UK-based companies due to the complexities of compliance. Securing the necessary permits and ensuring legal adherence can consume valuable time and resources. At our firm, we specialize in facilitating smooth Intra-Corporate Transfers (ICT) to the Netherlands, streamlining the process for your company and ensuring a hassle-free relocation experience for your employees.

Dutch ICT permit

The Intra-Corporate Transfers (ICT) scheme offers a pathway for multinational companies to transfer their employees to branches or subsidiaries in the Netherlands. This program allows for the temporary relocation of key personnel, facilitating knowledge transfer and operational continuity within the organization. As your trusted partner, we handle the ICT process, ensuring compliance with Dutch immigration regulations and obtaining the necessary residence permits for your transferred employees.

Conditions and qualifications for the ICT Permit

To qualify for the ICT permit, both the assigning and receiving entities within the organization must meet specific criteria. The employee being transferred must have been employed by the assigning entity for a minimum period and possess specialized knowledge or skills relevant to their role in the Netherlands. Our expert team will guide you through the eligibility requirements and assist in preparing the required documentation to support the ICT application.

Guidance through the UK-NL trade agreement

The trade and cooperation agreement between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands has brought new dynamics to business dealings between the two countries. This agreement, based on the trade and cooperation agreement for British citizens working in specific sectors, opens doors for smoother transitions and work opportunities for both companies and individuals. We assist companies in maximizing the benefits of this agreement, such as when applying for work permits. Contact us for advice and support.
