Establishment of a B.V.

Entrepreneurship means taking risks! As an entrepreneur, you are not afraid to do so, but of course it is also useful if you can exclude risks. Doing your business through a private company in the Netherlands with limited liability (B.V.) can help.

B.V. is a legal entity with a capital divided into shares. And a legal person is its own holder of rights and obligations. In short, the B.V. runs the risk and not the shareholder. A B.V. is represented and managed by a director. This can be a person or another legal entity.
A director (and a shareholder who behaves like a director) can be liable in case of mismanagement and/or fraud.
The B.V. can only be established by notarial deed. In addition to the name, the registered office and the objective of the company, the notarial deed sets out the rules of conduct to which all shareholders and directors must adhere.
At the time of incorporation, the first shares are issued to the shareholders. The shareholders usually deposit these shares immediately. There is no minimum capital by law. This means that even a share capital of one euro is enough at the time of incorporation. Depending on your business, you will have to provide funds to start the company, or arrange financing.

After the B.V. has been established, the B.V. has to be registered in Dutch Commercial Register (kvk) We will take care of this for you.
