Holland made easy

The life of an international is not always easy. We have experienced that ourselves when we moved abroad and even the simplest things proved to be a nightmare. But we soon found out that having the right contacts can be a life saver. That is why we started TULIP EXPATS SERVICES: to help the international community by providing the right advice at the right time.

We provide professional advice with a personal touch to those who wish to work and live in the Netherlands in order to help them settle in their new environment. With over 25 years experience in relocation services, banking services, tax services, financial services and all other related services, we have an extensive knowledge of all the specific rules and regulations of the Dutch system. Our wide range of tailor-made services are specifically adapted to your own personal situation in the Netherlands.

Tulip Expats Services were 100% instrumental in our successful relocation to Holland. Els de Buvry and Arlette de Haan’s wealth of knowledge and expertise of the Dutch community and culture were invaluable to us during our transition. They are very professional, but also have a personal touch – like you are apart of their family. We will use them again in the future and highly recommend their services!

Since moving to the Netherlands, the Tulips have been my financial advisor, real estate advisor (twice), and tax accountant. They provide a great service at a reasonable price and are willing to go the extra mile to help. They understand the needs of expats and are extremely knowledgable in the Dutch laws and processes.

I have known Tulip Expats Services and Els for about seven years. I met her on recommendation from my international colleagues to provide guidance and assistance with my taxes in the Netherlands. Since then Els has assisted me with purchasing an new house and in arranging suitable mortgages. Els still conducts my financial affairs and I am a very satisfied customer. Keep up the good work.

Tulip Expat services were a tremendous help and value in our transition from the US to the Netherlands. This was our first experience in moving abroad, and I am not sure how we would have done everything without them. They gave us great service from everything including the proper documentation requirements, immigration process, to helping us find a home, bank, car, school and registrations of our kids. Worth every dollar (or euro) and highly recommended!

Group Controller at Core Laboratories

We hired Tulip Expats Services for buying a house in the Netherlands. Els was extremely helpful and knows the dutch real state market very well. We were impressed by her negotiation skills during the bid process. Also from the procedural point of view she guided us, she took the time to explain every item in the contract and to reply to every question we had. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for a house in the Netherlands.
