Step 1: Acquiring a Resident Permit Fionza Consultants is your trusted partner in securing the necessary resident or work permit to facilitate your business initiation in the Netherlands. If you hail from a third country outside the European Union, acquiring a work permit from the relevant authority is a requisite step to invest in the country.
Step 2: Selecting the Ideal Business Structure Prior to embarking on company formation, it’s imperative to make the right choice regarding your business’s legal structure. Drawing from your business model and long-term objectives, Fionza Consultants will offer expert guidance on the most suitable business entity type, optimal paid-up share capital, and the most advantageous corporate framework. The Dutch BV, akin to a limited liability company, is the prevailing and widely adopted business model in the Netherlands, making it a frequent recommendation.
Step 3: Reserving Your Company Name Fionza Consultants undertakes a comprehensive search to determine the availability of your chosen company name through the Netherlands trade register, specifically the Chamber of Commerce KVK. Once the availability of your company’s trade name is confirmed, Fionza Consultants proceeds to reserve it with the Trade Registry.
Step 4: Document Preparation and Submission To commence the incorporation process of your Netherlands-based company, you must furnish a set of essential KYC (Know Your Customer) documents. These documents encompass details of directors, the company’s resolution, and identification proof. Leveraging this information, Fionza Consultants will draft and notarize vital documents such as the Memorandum and Articles of Association and the business plan. Subsequently, we will register your company through the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce KVK. Upon successful registration, we will dispatch your Netherlands company business registration certificate, Memorandum and Articles of Association, and other pertinent corporate documents to your preferred address.
Step 5: Establishing a Corporate Bank Account Depending on your chosen business structure, the requisite documents for opening a corporate bank account may vary. Fionza Consultants will simplify this process by consolidating the necessary documents and facilitating the opening of a corporate bank account with a reputable bank of your preference. While a local bank account is not obligatory for a Dutch company, you can opt for an international bank, leveraging Fionza Consultants’ extensive network and partnerships with reputable offshore banks, including those in Singapore and Switzerland. Once the bank account is successfully established, Fionza Consultants will dispatch the internet banking token and access codes to your preferred address.
Step 6: Registration with Tax Authorities and License Application Your new business venture necessitates registration with the Belastingdienst, the Dutch tax office. Fionza Consultants will provide invaluable assistance in acquiring the essential tax identification numbers for income tax and VAT, enabling you to claim VAT deductions on your initial investments for business commencement. Additionally, we will conduct a thorough examination to identify any licenses applicable to your specific business. For instance, registration with social security authorities and the pension fund may be required for employment-related purposes. Fionza Consultants will skillfully handle the application process for the relevant licenses, aligning with the nature and scope of your business activities.
