Do you intend to start a business in the Netherlands or have you started a business already?
To start a private limited company (BV) or a public limited company (NV), you need to follow a number of steps. For example, you must have deed of incorporation drawn up and ratified, pay the minimum start-up capital into the company and register the company. The procedure for setting up a BV is very similar to the procedure for setting up an NV, but differs in one important point: the minimum start-up capital required.
When setting up a company, it is important that the company is set up properly from the start. For example, the statutory structure and the internal cooperations must be given shape (e.g., shareholders must arrange mutual agreements in a shareholders’ agreement). To ensure that this is done correctly, it is advisable to engage a lawyer.
