Press Release: Liance opens new office in Curacao

Liance is delighted to announce that it has opened a new office in Curacao as of March 2018.

The new branche office will be led by Liance partner Robin Kooy and new Liance partner Wiek Herben, who will continue his already existing legal practice under the Liance label.

Robin Kooy commented: “with European companies being more and more active in both the Caribbean and South America, setting up an office in Curacao seemed like a logical choice as Curacao acts as a hub for companies operating in both regions due to its stable economy and legal system. With the new office, we can better meet the needs of our clients which are active in these markets”

Wiek Herben, based in Curacao as a company lawyer and attorney at law since 2010, adds: “the services that Liance provides in respect to legal management consultancy and legal IT solutions are unique for the region and will greatly increase our capability and capacity to service our existing clients and new clients. ”

Liance was established by a group of legal professionals with the ambition to combine (strategic) legal services with legal management consultancy. In the upcoming years Liance strives to grow both nationally and internationally by expanding its network and engaging in partnerships with other business-minded service providers such as  international (tax) law firms, IT companies and financial advisors. This will enable Liance to not only service its clients better, but to further advance its goal as well: to turn legal affairs into strategic value

Wettelijk minimum loon voor zzp-ers

Mensen die geen arbeidsovereenkomst hebben maar op basis van een opdrachtovereenkomst (ovo) werken, vallen vanaf 1 januari 2018 onder het wettelijk minimumloon (WML). De ministerraad heeft op voorstel van minister Asscher van Sociale zaken en Werkgelegenheid besloten dat deze regeling nu ook wordt uitgebreid naar de mensen die op basis van een andere overeenkomst werken, zoals een aanneem-, uitgeef-, of vervoersovereenkomst. Door betaling van het WML aan opdrachtnemers moet misbruik van deze groep door middel van te lage tarieven worden voorkomen. De wetswijziging komt voort uit de discussies over het gebruik van de opdrachtovereenkomst in de postmarkt. Onder de reikwijdte van WML OVO en deze uitbreiding vallen ruim 431.000 mensen (bron: accountant.nl 30 juni 2017).
