This location can be provided through one of our cohorts, which saves you the complexity of tracking down your business area. Our partners give work locales all through the Netherlands to assure your business can be situated in the most idyllic area for you!

Drafting the Statutory Documents

The articles will be (and should be) drafted in the Dutch language, yet we will help you to present an unofficial interpretation into English or another parlance. Legitimization can be given in English. (By and large, for utilization of the understanding outside the Netherlands, a different OFFICIAL translation with the disciple is needed for which extra charges are relevant?) In occurrence, the shareholder(s) will visit the notary to sign the Formation Deed; anyhow, if it is inaccessible formation, the notary will likewise draft the Power of Attorney where they will allow the authority to anyone to incorporate the organization on investor’s behalf.

The investor’s register won’t be drafted in design however will be given after the formation. We can share an idea upon request. It normally requires two to three days to get the ideas of the notary, and ODINT will at that point share this information with the shareholders, along with the amplification.

If you have any observations and like to make changes, we can inculcate the legal official to do as such.
We can’t advise you upfront on the time the notary may take to play out these changes, or if somewhat further charges will be relevant. ODINT will update before any other costs will ensue.

STEP 5 – Approval and Signing
