The Netherlands and Company incorporation: what type of company should you choose?

The Dutch BV (limited liability company)

is the most popular type for foreign investors to register a Dutch company. The Dutch BV can be registered with a minimum share capital of EUR 1, in accordance with company law.

The documentation required for Company incorporation will consist of a legalised and apostilled copy of a valid identity document (this can be done at your local town hall) and proof of address. A power of attorney must be signed by a notary for remote incorporation, but you don’t have to travel to Holland to do this. We can save you this hassle, which means you can set up your Company incorporation more easily than ever before. Shareholders can authorise us to take care of the necessary filings on their behalf.

With us, a personal visit is therefore not necessary to set up a Dutch company; the incorporation procedure can be completed from abroad. What’s more, we offer you remote banking*, again without the need to travel.

A limited liability company in the Netherlands may have shareholders and directors. For the registration process, the company’s shareholders must be verified and have the power to sign the deed of incorporation.

In addition, in the case of a partner that is a holding company, an extract from the trade register of the legal entity must be provided. If the registration is made remotely, a power of attorney must be received and signed on behalf of the shareholder or director.

In the case of corporate shareholders, the Dutch company will be a subsidiary. It is also possible to register a Dutch branch; a branch has less substance than a subsidiary and may be treated differently by the Dutch tax authorities. Substance may arise from the appointment of a resident director.

Other types of company

The Dutch Foundation

Is a legal entity. Dutch foundations can be used as commercial entities, family funds and holding companies. The foundation may hold shares and real estate and may aim to make a profit. Dutch foundations may be exempt from tax under certain conditions or may even be exempt from accounting or reporting requirements. If the Dutch foundation is concluded under notarial contract, the foundation will be limited in liability.

The Dutch NV company

Also known as a civil liability company, this is a legal entity best suited to large companies when setting up a Dutch public company. It requires a minimum share capital of 45,000 euros. The Dutch NV is controlled by a board of directors. The annual meeting of shareholders can appoint directors or require changes in management.

Branches and subsidiaries

 

Setting up a branch in the Netherlands can be attractive for foreign companies. A subsidiary will generally be a Dutch BV owned by the foreign holding company. The main difference is that the subsidiary is completely independent, whereas the branch is not.

The general partnership

The general partnership is the type of partnership in which two or more partners work together with a common business name and business objective, although they are each legally independent. The directors are fully liable for the debts of the partnership. Profits are shared between the partners and there is no minimum share capital requirement. The disadvantage of a general partnership is that the partners can be held liable by creditors if the business cannot meet its payments.

The Dutch limited partnership

The Netherlands also has a type of partnership, known as a limited partnership and is comparable to an LLP. A managing partner has unlimited liability and a ‘silent’ partner has limited liability, if they do not participate in the management of the partnership. We do not provide services to Dutch limited partnerships.

Professional partnerships

A professional partnership in the Netherlands can be formed by two independent people, such as accountants, dentists or physiotherapists. The partners are liable for all liabilities.

Creating a company in the Netherlands: the procedure
The Company incorporation procedure can be effective within 3 to 5 working days. The most time is usually spent checking and drawing up the documents.

Step 1

- Identity details of the directors and shareholders of the BV company.
- A copy of the passport of all directors, shareholders and other beneficial owners.
- Notre formulaire rempli concernant la création d’une société.

Step 2

Once we have prepared the documentation for the company incorporation, the shareholders will have to go to the Dutch notary public to sign the incorporation documents. Alternatively, we can prepare the incorporation documents for you to sign in your home country.

Step 3

Our firm will handle the company incorporation in the Netherlands and file the company with the Dutch Companies Register. We offer remote bank account* introduction.

Taxation of Dutch companies

When your Dutch company is registered with the tax office, it will pay tax on its profits. The lowest rate of corporation tax is currently 15% up to €196,000 profit per year; from 2022, the threshold for the lowest tax rate will rise to €316,000. The highest tax rate is 25.8%.

Many international companies have found the Netherlands to be an excellent country in which to optimise their international tax rates. This is mainly due to the attractive regulations and tax advantages for international companies.

Economic opportunities in the Netherlands

The Netherlands enjoys a stable position as a key member of the European Union and the ease of travel within the Schengen area. This offers many opportunities, as new trade routes and investments beyond the Dutch borders can be established.

The Netherlands is known for its accessibility to major markets. The ports of Rotterdam and the Europoort port area link international trade with mainland Europe. “Europoort” is Dutch for “Gateway to Europe”.

The country has maintained a 3rd position as the most competitive business environment in the world thanks to the Dutch business mentality and a solid transport infrastructure. The Dutch workforce is stable, well-educated and fluently bilingual, which makes recruitment and international relations easier; this and low-cost Dutch business start-ups make the Netherlands more attractive than some other Western European countries.

Frequently asked questions on setting up a Dutch company

Can I set up a Dutch company if I don't live in the Netherlands?

*Our rates do not include domiciliation, trust fees, share capital deposit fees and administrative costs.

*The creation of a bank account* by a third party is illegal, even with a power of attorney; we invite you to be wary of sites offering to open a bank account* for you. An independent manager from our company, an account manager working for the bank, will call you to deal with your application to open a bank account*. Our service is to put you in touch with the bank and not to open a bank account*. The bank alone decides whether or not to open a bank account* (art. L. 312-1, II CMF). The profile of the applicant for a bank account* and his/her eligibility to open a bank account* are decisive factors in the bank’s decision. We do not open a bank account ourselves and do not guarantee the opening of a bank account*. Banking introduction* is a service obligation, not a performance obligation or a results requirement.
