Open a company in Netherlands

How to open a company in Netherlands and how does it work?

To get started with opening a dutch limited liabilities company, you will need to prepare certain paperwork.

To proceed with the process, you will need to present proof of identity, proof of address (required for both your director(s) and shareholder(s) of the dutch company.), and an address in the Netherlands.

The shareholder and  the director of the new dutch company needs to be verified and the due diligence collected.

You will also need a public notary who can draft the Deed of Incorporation, a document similar to an Articles of Association that needs to be in Dutch.

The document will contain information regarding your business activities, the company’s shareholders, the director’s responsibility, registered address, share capital, and your management boards. 

It is also necessary to submit your notarized documents in order for the notary to execute the Deed of Incorporation, register the new dutch company with chamber of commerce Netherlands.
