How to open a Dutch bank account

The owners of Dutch companies, including non-residents and immigrants, must open a Dutch bank account to manage their income and obtain different banking services.

Many Dutch banks open corporate and personal accounts. Service packs can include the benefits of mobile and online banking, additional features and bank advice.

In order to Netherlands Company Formation, a corporate bank account must be opened. This account is required to complete different business transfers and transactions. The annual financial statements also require a bank reference with a history of transactions.
