    What kind of company can you open in the Netherlands?


    Dutch BV (limited liability company). According to the recently revised “Company Law”, if your minimum share capital is 1 Euro, you can register for such a company. There are many requirements for the board of directors and local company headquarters. These requirements are “substantial” requirements of local regulations, and our company can provide all the necessary services. Foreign businessmen registered as Dutch companies as holding companies can benefit from the help of reliable companies that can provide company secretarial services.


    General partner. This type of business applies to companies that have two or more partners and have the same economic goals and have unlimited liability for corporate debt. They share the profits between them, they don't need to offer the lowest equity, just like the Dutch BV. If the debt cannot be repaid through company funds, the personal assets of each ordinary member of the partner can be borne by the creditor.


    Dutch Limited Partnership. To register another form of partnership, a Dutch limited partnership requires at least two partners - a general partner with unlimited liability and management decisions - and a silencer who must provide funding to the company and whose responsibilities are limited to its contribution.


    A professional partner consists of two partners, at least they are responsible for their claims. This kind of business is the first choice for professional than business.


    Public liability company. This form of business is suitable for large investments and requires a share capital of 45,000 euros. The shareholders' meeting is responsible for management decisions. The manager's board will be responsible for day-to-day decisions.


    Branch/subsidiary of a foreign company. The main difference between these two forms of business is the degree of independence of the local branch or subsidiary from the parent company.


    What is the procedure for setting up a company in the Netherlands?


    Foreign entrepreneurs wishing to set up a company in the Netherlands must follow specific procedures, which means the following steps:

    Select and retain three company names, one of which will be selected as the product name;

    • Drafting and notarizing the registration documents of the new company;
    • Submit documents to Dutch companies for registration of taxes and VAT;
    • Registered for employment and social security purposes, including pension funds

    Steps to register a company in the Netherlands:

    Step 1:

    • Full information on future Dutch company shareholders and directors 
    • Copy of passport of the shareholder (if natural person), director and UBO (final beneficiary) (if applicable) 
    • For foreign companies, they must be extracted from the national trade register; 
    • The required social capital, the Dutch BV is 1 euro.

    Step 2:


    Visit the Dutch notary to sign the company registration document or sign the document abroad and send the original to our company's address in Amsterdam. In the latter case, these documents will be provided by our office and must be properly legalized. However, in this case you will no longer need to visit the Netherlands.


    Step 3:


    Our company will apply to the Dutch Trade Registry for establishment. Before the company registration process begins, the applicant must verify the uniqueness of the product name. The name can then be retained and the investor will receive a certificate for that name. After that, he must open a bank account and deposit the minimum capital share. The next step is the notarization of the company's registration contract signed and drafted by the notary.


    If the act is delivered in person, the new company's documents will be submitted to the Chamber of Commerce, which will provide the registration number within a few hours. This process may take up to a week if the file has been mailed. The company was established in the Official Gazette of the Netherlands (Staatscourant) and the proceedings will be carried out by the Chamber.


    The tax ID must be obtained, so the investor must submit a registration form at the local tax authority. A separate income tax registration form must be provided. The necessary forms are available on the local tax authority or on the official website and must contain information about the company and its members.


    After registering a company in the Netherlands, the owner should hire an accountant to assist with tax, audit and financial advice.
