Setting up a company in Holland

To set up a company in Holland, the B.V. (BeslotenVennootschap – private company) option,in our opinion, would be the best solution for most foreign owners. With this option a Dutch bank account and Dutch VAT number are also more quickly obtained than other options. This option can be set up in entirely from abroad. Moreover, it only takes a couple of days and a few simple steps.

The advantages and details regarding  a B.V. company are as follows:

  • The minimum deposit is € 0,01 and there is no maximum deposit;
  • There can be one or multiple shareholders;
  • Shareholder(s) can be one or more persons and/or companies;
  • Within the company, theremust be at least one director and he/she does not have to be a local person or company;
  • The shareholders are not responsible for the debts of the B.V. company;
  • It’s easy to appoint one or more shareholders at a later stage;
  • It’s easy to sell the shares of a B.V. company at any time.
