This page provides an update from the Canadian Government.
Het coronavirus leidt tot veel vragen, ook over de gevolgen voor Nederland. Organisaties werken samen om besmettingen te voorkomen en de gevolgen van het nieuwe virus te beperken. Op deze website staat actuele informatie.
As the international response continues to develop, it is clear that organisations are facing several potentially significant challenges to which they need to respond rapidly. Whilst the priority remains the health and well-being of people, we are hearing about employee challenges such as establishing the tax position of people who are moving between countries on an emergency basis, or temporarily working from home in a different country to where they normally work. If you are facing such challenges, we recommend that you consult one of our members who are specialised in tax, fiscal and legal matters.
The Netherlands plays a vital role in European supply chains, therefore, the Dutch government has identified air and sea freight chains, road transport, as well as food and medical supply chains as vital processes in view of COVID-19. Employees vital to the operation of these chains can go to work and are, at this stage, still entitled to day-care if needed. Our Invest in Holland partner Holland International Distribution Council (HIDC) provides a brief update on the current situation (25 March 2020) and is available for questions about the continued operations of Dutch ports, borders and logistics operations.
