businessplan for IND permit

There are several administrative issues that need to be taken care of to start a company. The lawyer can help you with these. To get the permit you will also need a business plan to the IND (Dutch Immigration and Naturalization Service). The IND will judge and score your business plan based upon a point system. It is necessary to get a certain minimum number of points to qualify for the permit.

Which criteria does your business plan have to meet for the IND?

This point system consists of 3 parts:

  • Personal experience (training, entrepreneurship, work experience).
  • Business plan (market analysis, product / service, price, organization, financing).
  • Added value for the Netherlands (innovation, job creation, investments).

In total, 300 points can be earned. At least 90 points are required with a minimum of 30 points per part.

What services can we offer with respect to your business plan?

 Writing a business plan for the IND requires specific knowledge of entrepreneurship and knowledge of the point system of the IND. Ondernemersgvoel has that knowledge. Together with you, we write the business plan and we will build the case in such a way that the chance of granting a permit by the IND increases.


Please be aware, you will have to actively participate in the realization of the plan. After all, it is your business and you will have to provide references or potential customers to support your case.


The immigration lawyer ultimately submits the documents together with the business plan. The price we charge for writing a business plan depends on what information you already have available. Generally we charge a price of about € 1,250.
