Patricia I. Santa Cruz Montero, founder of PSM Consultancy:
When I finished the MBA (Master in Business Administration) at The Hague University in The Netherlands, I had the idea of starting a company that would not only generate economic income, but also could help foreigners who spoke my same language ( Spanish) and that were living in The Netherlands. This is how, after an investigation, I concluded that the Spanish-speaking residents of this country had problems in their tax returns, mainly because of the difficulties of the Dutch language and the complexity of the tax terms; in which I am perfectly familiar because of the work experience and studies in this topic. As part of my research, I also concluded that in the Netherlands there are approximately 100,000 Spanish-speaking residents, which are residents in The Netherlands. This target group are required to file their tax returns each year. The fact of having identified and focused on this market was in order to help them to understand the tax returns in their own language.
