May an investment firm from another Member State, that offers investment services, online or otherwise, with a European passport in the Netherlands receive commissions for these services?

Yes, these investment firms can continue to receive commissions. The principle is that investment firms with a European passport are free to provide investment services or conduct investment activities in the territory of another Member State as long as the services in question are covered by the licence granted by the supervisory authority in the Member State of origin and the notification procedure has been followed. The host Member State may not impose additional obligations on these investment firms (under the home country control principle).
