Register a Company in the Netherlands

When you decide to set up a Dutch company, the first obligation is to register your company. However, there is a lot more to the Registration process than mere paperwork. If you are a new entrepreneur looking to set up a business in the Netherlands, you will first have to comply with the regulations to register your company in the Netherlands.

Procedure to Register your Company

The registration process is done at Dutch Chamber of Commerce Register, but you may also require separate registration with the Tax and Customs Administration. However, before registration, you may need to comply with several other requirements.

The first thing to do is to get a residence permit or a start-up visa, if you are a foreigner who wishes to remain and start a business in the Netherlands. If you do not wish to stay in the Netherlands, and do not need a permanent establishment in Netherlands, you only need to register your incorporated company with the Dutch Tax and Chamber of Commerce.

Register Company Netherlands



For registration purposes at the Chamber of Commerce, the next thing is to find a name for your company which is unique, sounds appropriate, and does not resemble any other local business. This company name should also not contain any special character. Once you are done with selecting an appropriate name, you need to choose the legal structure of the company such as sole proprietorship, Private Partnership, Private limited, Public limited, Commercial Partnership, Limited partnership, etc. You can also register your company in the Netherlands by filling in the online form, submitting personal details, business contact details, company descriptions, as well as expected yearly turnover and gross profit. However, you may also need to visit the Chamber of Commerce to register. There is a fee to be paid subsequent to registration.
