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 B.V.), 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 commercial registry. 

How to open a dutch company as a non-resident?

While the process of setting up a Dutch B.V. has been simplified in recent years, opening a company in Holland is still a challenge for non-residents or people who prefer not to travel to Holland.

 

Fortunately, we have a simple solution.

 

Our package has been designed specifically for non-Dutch residents and international clients looking to set up a Dutch B.V.

 

The package simplifies the procedure, ensuring you can finalize the company formation process from the comfort of your own home and eliminates the need to travel to the Netherlands.

 

With this package, you can act as the director of your own company and set up your Dutch B.V. from any point around the globe without the need for a Dutch partner to open your business.

 

Upon receiving all documents, the process ONLY takes up to 3 days.

 

The process of company formation in the Netherlands can be tricky, especially since most of the relevant information is available in Dutch only which causes a lot of people to miss important fees or costs.
