Dutch to overhaul legislation to boost new business models

The Dutch cabinet wants to ensure both consumers and companies benefit from the changes brought by digitalisation, the sharing economy and 3D printing and is planning to overhaul legislation to make this happen, economic affairs minister Henk Kamp told parliament in a briefing on Monday. For example, Kamp and housing minister Stef Block are to look at changing the regulation of how private individuals rent out their homes via platforms such as Airbnb and Wimdu, the briefing said. Current rules governing private rentals will be modernised so that they ‘connect better’ with the activities of innovative firms, the ministers say. Benefits ‘If we in the Netherlands want to profit first from the advantages of renewal, then we have to make space in our legislation,’ Kamp said. ‘That will ensure new companies and jobs come to the Netherlands rather than elsewhere.’
