How to register a director, partner, or authorised representative of a foreign legal form.
1. Download the form
2. Do I have to send the form by post or visit KVK?
Visit a KVK office
- Partners, directors, or authorised representatives must visit a KVK office in person to register. Bring the completed and signed form and a valid ID. The form states which supporting documents you may need to bring.
- You must make an appointment to visit a KVK office. During your visit, a KVK employee will check your ID and determine whether you meet the registration requirements.
Send form to KVK by post
- Supervisory board members need not KVK in person. Even if the official is a legal entity, such as a bv (PLC) or nv (LLC), you do not have to visit a KVK office and can simply send us the form. The form states who is authorised to sign the form and which supporting documents you may need to enclose.
- Send the form, with a copy of a valid ID belonging to the signatory to one of KVK’s mailing addresses.
- You do not need to visit KVK in person.
