Company registration in the Netherlands

December 14, 2020

The Netherlands is one of the most respectable and prestigious jurisdictions in Europe. The Dutch jurisdiction is very beneficial and convenient for the development of foreign companies. And thanks to the changes made to the legislation in 2013, the registration procedure was simplified as much as possible, which allowed foreign entrepreneurs to create companies in the Netherlands in just 3-4 weeks.

Organizational forms

From some sides, the Netherlands can be considered an offshore zone, since the taxation system there is quite flexible, however, it does not provide for a complete exclusion of the payment of tax fees. You can create a company in Holland in one of the following forms:

  1. BV. It is a closed company with limited liability on its founders. The firm must have at least one director and shareholder. An office in the Netherlands is also needed. The minimum registered capital is 1 euro. Investors tend to choose this type of company in most cases.
  2. NV. An open company, which consists of 1+ shareholder, board members and a specially created supervisory board. The registered capital of such a company is 45 thousand euros. The organization is allowed to issue various types of shares – bearer and registered.
  3. VOF. These are companies that are not granted legal entity status. The partners are liable in proportion to the amount of funds that they have invested.
  4. CV. These are partnerships in which members have limited liability.

It is also possible to register and maintain a Dutch company established as a branch of a foreign organization, a fund company and an association. Citizens of any state can act as shareholders and founders.


The income tax rate depends on the size of the profit itself. If the amount exceeds 200 thousand euros, the rate will be 25%, if the amount is less than the specified figure, then 20%. As for VAT, there are 3 following options:

  • standard, equal to 19%
  • preferential at 6%
  • zero

For dividends, 15% must be paid to the state budget. This tax can be deducted from personal or corporate obligations, however, this is only allowed for residents. The Netherlands has signed a double taxation treaty with many countries, which further reduces the rate.

Royalties and capital increases are tax-free, no stamp duty.
