Anonymous asked: Shawn, your blog has been quite helpful; we're in a similar position (own a small web firm, moving to NL w/ small children, going in under the DAFT, etc.). Question, if you don't mind sharing: what were your total upfront costs altogether for getting to the Netherlands, perhaps broken out by legal, accounting, etc.? Estimates I've gotten have varied widely from as low as $13k to as high as $30k. Thanks a ton for any assistance you can provide!
Registering with the IND, paying lawyer costs, paying the administrative firm to have the business / financial plans made all came up to around $4000-$5000. Add that to the capital necessary to have in the bank and you have my costs.
