FAQ

You should use the registration forms to register your business. Select Bedrijf (‘Business’), choose a legal form, and follow the steps. Complete the forms as fully as possible. Once you have done this, book an appointment to finalise your registration at one of our offices. You can register at any Chamber of Commerce office in the Netherlands.

You can deregister your business using an online form (in Dutch) on our website. In the online form, select 'uitschrijven' (deregister), then enter the company name or KVK number, and complete the steps. Submit the deregistration:

  • online: this is possible for a sole proprietorship, a legal entity still being set up, or a branch of a foreign company in the Netherlands
  • by post: for all other legal forms

When you stop your business, there are a number of things you need to arrange. You will find useful tips in the step-by-step plan for ending your business, and in the information about tax issues when ending a business (in Dutch).

Please note: Dissolving and deregistering the business may have an impact on, among other things, your business bank account, financing, insurance, pension fund, and municipal permits. For example, you will no longer be able to access your business bank account. Please check the websites of these organisations to find out what steps you must take before deregistering.

Are you planning to apply for financial support from your municipality? If so, it may be a condition that you are still listed in the Business Register. Check this before deregistering the company with KVK.

You must report a change within 1 week. Has more than a week passed? In that case, you must still report your change. If you fail to do so, this will have consequences, for example, for the liability of your company. The change only takes effect once it has been entered in the Business Register. You cannot rely on it before then.

You must register your company within 1 week before or after the start of your business activities.

You can also visit our offices earlier to register your company. You can do this up to 3 months before your start date. To do this, make an appointment with one of our offices.

We will handle the actual registration in the week before the start date you provide. You do not need to visit a Chamber of Commerce (KVK) office again for this. After registration, we will send you a written confirmation of your registration and an invoice for the registration fee by post.

You can report a change of address through ‘Wijzigen’ (change, in Dutch). Enter your business name or registration number. Select ‘Vestigingsgegevens wijzigen’ (Change business branch details) and follow the steps. Submit the details digitally.
