Immigration

Immigration services – Our Immigration team can provide you with full immigration- and expat support; remote and on location. Our experts are all immigration specialists with a broad knowledge and experience of immigration practices.

When hiring people from outside of the EU, there are different Visa types that you can use. Each and every kind of Visa has its own terms and conditions that the prospective employer & employee needs to meet in order to relocate to the Netherlands.

We will assist with advising on the most suitable Visa type for the individual and company, and apply for the Visa of the employee and potential spouse and siblings, whilst making sure that everyone is registered in the Netherlands correctly. For some types of Visa a special license is necessary for the employer, which we will apply for as well when necessary. After the relocation process has been finished, we can apply for the 30% tax ruling in order to enjoy this tax benefit.

What clients say about us

Finance Savvy has managed the set up of our financial reporting system in Amsterdam which will eventually be rolled out across Europe, I would recommend them to any company setting up in the Netherlands.

When we came to the Netherlands, we were introduced to the Savvy Ecosystem, we have not looked back since, the integrated services solutions of HR and Finance have enabled us to set up quickly and effectively, with an option to scale up on short notice. Furthermore we have been given an extensive insight into the local market which has helped us considerable with our clients in the Netherlands.

Unique, personable, proactive, flexible, international and very hands on, this is how I would describe the Finance Savvy team. No doubt we have a established a European business partnership with one of the best in the field.

Finance Savvy immediately understood our local requirements without loosing sight of the international financial and fiscal implications… With their open source system we are able to access data 24/7 from the US, this is really a very refreshing and transparent way of working.

As a U.S. company opening up overseas we were very pleased with the professional support,
local market insight and guidance – both solicited and unsolicited – that you and your firm gave
us.

This company was introduced to Savvy very early on in the process of investigating how and where to best setup business in Europe. The advice we have received from Savvy, from the early stages of implementation all the way to present day, has been invaluable for us being able to establish and operate a successful business in Europe.

Recruitment Savvy has been retained by this USA based company expending to European market to assist us in looking for best staff to fill our new European office. Not only they have provided an exceptional service in selecting the very well fitted candidates for our company, but they have assisted in networking with other local companies. I was very impressed with the quality of staff selection David Cives and his Recruitment Savvy team has assembled for me to interview. All selected candidates met or exceeded my expectations. The experience of working with Dave and his team was excellent. We continue maintaining great professional relationship. I highly recommend Recruitment Savvy as a very, responsive and attentive professional recruitment company. I would like to highlight as well that Dave and his team served as a great reference to local and European labor market and labor laws.

When, shortly after the opening of our Amsterdam office, we decided to open a small office in France, Savvy became equally critical to our business, taking over management of the books and records and the payroll processing in that country as well. Savvy’s assistance is critical for me in ensuring that we stay in compliance in jurisdictions in which we are not expert. They fill this role effectively and efficiently, and I look forward to continuing to partner with them in these regions as well as in new countries when and if such a need arises.
