Realising cross-border ambitions. Our slogan embodies exactly the next step in LIMES international’s success story.
After a smooth acquisition process, the deal was recently sealed: LIMES international, the consulting firm that facilitates cross-border working and business, has been acquired by the originally Scottish-based activpayroll: a leading provider of global payroll and HR solutions.
With the acquisition of LIMES, activpayroll gains a strong partner in the Netherlands and Belgium that will further expand the global mobility formula in 150 countries under its own LIMES name in the coming years.
The transaction also involves payrolling organisation MILES, the EOR / PEO (Employer of Record / Professional Employment Organisation) for highly skilled migrants. MILES has been added to LIMES’ services since 2015.
“Our dream is to expand the LIMES tax and global mobility formula globally and realise your and our cross-border ambitions,” said Age Seinstra, managing director of LIMES. “The joining of forces with activpayroll’s global payroll services and LIMES tax and global mobility enables us to enhance and expand the existing tax and global mobility service line around the world. This will provide organisations with a pragmatic and flexible solution for the increasingly globalised workforce. The acquisition of MILES international payrolling also adds an EOR / PEO service line for highly skilled employees to activpayroll’s one-stop-shop solution globally from the Netherlands.”
LIMES and MILES have taken a strategic position between the Big Four and other specialist tax advisory firms. The current management of LIMES and MILES will remain unchanged after the transaction. Directors Nick Domburg and Age Seinstra will both hold other positions within activpayroll in addition to their current positions as LIMES directors. Nick Domburg joins the management board of activpayroll.
