FAQs about making an appointment

Only one of the partners in the vof can register. You can help someone else with the registration, but a partner must log in with their own DigiD.

You can reschedule or cancel your appointment until the last minute. Keep in mind that if you reschedule or cancel your appointment at the last minute, you are keeping the time slot occupied for others.

The moment you make an appointment, you will receive a confirmation email from KVK. This email contains a link with which you can view your appointment details. You can also reschedule or cancel your appointment via the link. Cannot find the email? To be sure, also check your spam box.

The registration form takes you step by step through all the questions. So it is made as easy as possible for you. Do you still find it too difficult? Then ask someone you know for help. This way you can ask them if it is not completely clear.
