Working across borders requires a broad, global perspective and experienced professionals who can offer expertise in both local and international legislation. It also means having expert guidance that you can call upon when you need it.
At Bol international, we have a full-time, dedicated US-Netherlands desk in place for our US clients. This desk provides invaluable cross-border support and advice to American-owned businesses of all sizes and across a diverse range of industries and sectors.
With a deep understanding of the Dutch and US business landscape – and the differences between the two – our US-Netherlands team can help ensure your operations in the Netherlands function as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Let us be your guide.
A full-service package delivered by an expert team

Whether you require advice on a standalone issue or comprehensive support across different operating areas, we can provide you with a tailor-made solution to suit your needs.
US GAAP Translation Service
Although international standards are becoming more consistent to meet increasing demand for transparency in financial reporting, US and Dutch GAAP, along with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), still differ significantly for many items. This means that failure to properly translate financials can lead to serious complications. If, for example, a Dutch BV is owned by an American company, discrepancies can lead to long-term inconsistency. Or if a Dutch company has American shareholders, similar confusion can arise.
Our networks, your success
As a member of the Leading Edge Alliance (LEA) and the International Fiscal Association (IFA), we have access to important global networks, which we can deploy in your benefit.
These relationships allow us to connect with law firms, accounting and tax consulting firms across the United States. We can work together with your tax advisor and/or accountant to find the best possible solution for your business. We also have access to the most extensive tax library in the world, the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation (IBFD), providing a wealth of information that we can pass on to our clients.
