RSH Relocation and Immigration Services was established in 1985, making it one of the oldest relocation companies in the Netherlands. Having been in business for more than 30 years, RSH has built up a strong working relationship with all relevant Dutch institutions during that period.

The firm’s core business is to provide relocation and immigration services in the Netherlands. It has positioned itself as a one-stop services provider, which also manages all immigration and relocation related enquiries.

The Immigration Services branch is proud of their high standard of knowledge and professionalism. Furthermore we have well developed relationships with the Dutch authorities. These relationships facilitate the expediting of the immigration process. This includes organising all visas necessary to bring the employee to the Netherlands and then all visas and resident/work permits necessary once the employee is here in the Netherlands (including renewals). We will guide each employee from the very first steps to be taken in their home country all the way through to when they finally arrive in Holland.

Relocation services include school searches, house searches, all required registration appointments, opening bank accounts, assistance with the 30 percent ruling, converting driver’s licenses, tax advice and much more. The firm operates as an in-house real estate broker, there are no third party real estate agents involved, resulting in reduced total housing search costs and improved service levels.

Edith Nordmann is our exclusively recommended International Law expert in the Netherlands on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Edith directly using the contact details above.

I practice employment law as well as commercial and corporate law and litigation. I have built up fifteen years of expertise in cross-border business transactions. People often think that cross border business transactions only apply to transactions with business partners far away from home, but any transaction involving parties that are not located in the same country is a “cross-border” transaction. Therefore also transactions with countries nearby, such as Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland and the United Kingdom need utmost diligence and attention in order to avoid unexpected expensive mistakes.

I focus on long-term relationships with clients. Building and maintaining a relationship is important for best serving the interests of a client. In practice, I find that clients appreciate this and I feel very lucky to have been working for many of them for a long time. Particularly in Asian countries, earning the trust of your potential business partner comes before engaging in actual business.

It is important to realise that not only regulations are different in each country, there is often also a significant difference in mentality and expectations. For example, in France, everybody knows that a tenant cannot be removed from his house between October and April. Not even if the tenant does not pay his rent. As of April tenants may be evicted, which means that in France April and May is generally a busy time with a lot of evictions. Here in the Netherlands we do not know this principle, but in France, every child knows this figuratively speaking. If you consider to invest in residential property in France, this is important to know. Another example: in the Netherlands we love conviviality and a joke, even during business transactions. The German business partner however, is very serious in his approach and sees the jokes of the Dutch as rude and as a sign of not being serious about the transaction at hand. If you are not aware of this, closing your deal will be at serious danger. I once witnessed his looming situation and could luckily intervene on both sides on time.
