Guides to Doing Business
in the Dutch Caribbean & Suriname

About this website

Our Guides to Doing Business help you understand how to do business in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the countries Aruba, Curaçao and St. Maarten, the islands of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba (also referred to as the ‘BES islands‘) and Suriname. These guides provide practical information on the legal systems and key legislation. Besides general information, they provide a basic understanding of the legal aspects that are involved with investing or doing business in the Dutch Caribbean.

Lex Mundi

The concept of Guides to Doing Business originates from Lex Mundi, the world’s leading association of independent law firms. We modernized the concept and went online, in order to make doing business on the islands more accessible. A team of specialized lawyers of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne provided input for the Dutch Caribbean jurisdictions. The Guide to Doing Business in Suriname was compiled by the Suriname Desk of our firm; a specialized team that assists local and international clients with interest in Suriname.
