Startups and scaleups require a double focus from an advisor. The first is a tax technical one. Young enterprises often have no or a very limited corporate structure.

By structuring with a long term vision, growth is supported and the business is prepared for, for instance, financing, subsidies, innovation measures and participation plans. In the meantime, the intellectual property must be protected and optimally employed.

The second focus that is required is process related. The way we see it: the company’s legal complexity is already significant, especially when there is ample IP involved, but the growth phase also requires a critical attitude towards the company’s liquidity. So: any advice – no matter how useful or necessary- cannot be too costly. By using MyArchipel, we can work lean and sharp; due to automation, our advisors don’t need to spend time on overhead activities. That’s why all our man-hours are tax related. As a result, we can advise young businesses, without them becoming a training project for junior staff. So: expect our full attention, as a young and innovative business deserves.

Our focus group Startups and Scaleups possesses the creativity and experience required to support young businesses, where not only obligations but also opportunities are observed. In that process, Archipel is keen to act as more than just a tax advisor. For instance, by linking your business to coaches, investors or strategic partners.

We see Startups and Scaleups as our sweet spot and are glad to be of service!

  • I have been trying to structure my company and personal interests and assets into one workable whole. And simultaneously consider all the legal and tax implications that go with it. I met Bas and the team at Archipel through a start-up project I am involved in. I found them to be extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and creatively informative. They applied themselves to try and understand my circumstances and offer creative solutions, for the multinational company structures I was trying to integrate. I have, with Archipel’s help and support, managed to achieve my goals and am extremely satisfied with the outcomes. They are an energetic, proactive, experienced team in whom I would have no hesitation in recommending.
