Dropshipping Business in the Netherlands

Hello everyone!

I decided to open a dropshipping business in the Netherlands. I just have a few questions:

1) what type of taxes do I pay? I tried searching but couldn’t find much information.

2) should I start as a sole proprietor at first? I’d like to register as one.

Thanks for your input 🙂 have a great day and happy 2020!
