Key Features

What does Dutch company formation mean in practice?

The Netherlands has a liberal tax regime including generous participation exemption – dividends received and capital gains realised are exempt from Dutch corporate income tax. There’s also an extensive network of double-taxation treaties. There are many other aspects of Dutch tax law, but as always, you will need specialist advice. We can put you in touch with one of our local specialists in tax planning .

What are the main types of Dutch incorporation?

There are four major kinds of Dutch company formation as follows:

  • public limited company (NV)
  • private limited company (BV)

What are the main features of an NV company?

  • the minimum share capital for an NV company is €45,000
  • at least 20% of the authorised share capital must be issued
  • suitable for companies wishing to raise capital publicly

Dutch Company Registration Process

Procedure to acquire a ready made company

Your chosen directors and shareholders of the new company sign official documents that allow us to make them the directors of your ready made company. We transfer the company into your power and it is ready to trade immediately.

Changing the company name of the Ready Made Company

We can also file a company name change the same day.

Appointing the new Directors

To appoint the directors of your new company you will need to sign official forms that state this. This can also be done through giving us a power of attorney to do this on your behalf.

We will be removed as directors of the company and it will be transferred over to you. You then receive the Certificate of Incorporation , Memorandum and Articles of Association of the company and the Company secretarial Forms.

Established Ready Made Shelf Companies, sometimes called old shelf or established companies, are dormant / inactive companies that were incorporated in the previous years but have never been active.
