Middenin in de pandemie verwacht een merendeel van C-suite leiders in 2021 groei. Wat zien zij nog meer aan de horizon?
New pension agreement: which changes apply to you?
3 March 2021 - In September 2019, the government, employee and employer organizations reached an agreement on renewing the pension system in the Netherlands. This agreement in principle was converted into a final pension agreement in the summer of 2020. The draft legislative texts will be presented in a final bill in the House of Representatives after the completion of the consultation process. If they adopt this bill, the consequence will be that in the coming years (almost) all pension schemes in the Netherlands will have to be adjusted. What does this mean for your company?
Brookz Takeover Barometer
25 February 2021 - Twice a year takeover platform Brookz publishes the Takeover Barometer. This describes figures and trends about the Dutch SME takeover market (companies with € 0.5 to 30 million turnover). We regularly bring these results to your attention as they provide a picture of the average EBITDA multiples paid and of certain trends in the SME market. In addition, they also describe the expectation for the coming period.
Creating value for your business: buy and build
25 February 2021 - There are several ways to create value, such as getting your business ready for sale. Another way to create value and work on your business is through acquisitions.
Pre-exit sale of a business
25 February 2021 - A pre-exit is basically a two-step sale of a business. An entrepreneur first sells part of the share capital and usually about five to seven years later the rest. Some of the capital is thus secured and the entrepreneur often continues to manage the company.
Financing options if your business outgrows bank
25 February 2021 - Much has been written about the relationship between companies and banks. It is often referred to as a partnership. The bank is a partner that provides financing so that the company can conduct its business. For many companies, they are financed with one bank. This is practical for the company and usually also a condition of the bank when providing financing.
Never waste a good crisis
25 February 2021 - That a crisis can offer opportunities we have seen in previous crises. Whether it was the Great Depression in 1929, the dotcom crisis in 2000, the attacks of September 11, 2001 in the United States or the Great Financial Crisis of 2008, humanity and entrepreneurs in particular have always come out stronger in the end. Those who managed to adapt well always proved to be the winners.
Industrial Pension Fund for Transport
22 February 2021 - On January 19, the Arnhem-Leeuwarden Court of Appeal rendered a groundbreaking judgment, which (among other things) determined that a Dutch transport company does not have to contribute a pension to the industry pension fund for professional goods transport by road ("Bpf Vervoer") for employees who are usually employed in Germany if no explicit choice of law was made for these employees for Dutch law.
19 februari 2021 – In een artikel over cybercriminaliteit onder de titel “Geef Hackers geen podiumplaats” riep het NOC*NSF haar leden en alle aan de sport verwante organisaties eind vorig jaar op alert te zijn voor cybercriminelen. Er worden meer en meer incidenten gemeld. Duidelijk is dat de cybercriminelen zich niet alleen meer richten op de grote wereldwijde evenementen, maar dat ook de lokale infrastructuur de aandacht van deze criminelen heeft. Een datalek kan leiden tot imagoschade en verstrekkende financiële gevolgen hebben, zowel voor de eigen organisatie als voor de bij de sportbonden betrokken organisaties (sponsoren, partners, etc.). Wees daarom bewust van de digitale footprint die uw organisatie achterlaat.
