Registration fee

To register a new company or organisation in the Dutch Business Register (Handelsregister), you pay a one-off fee. This fee is tax-deductible for entrepreneurs. In 2024, the fee is € 80.10

You must pay this registration fee when you:

  • register a company or organisation in the Business Register for the first time; 
  • register a restart, takeover, division, or merger that causes a new registration in the Business Register, with a new KVK number.

The registration fee is updated every year. The adjustment to the fee depends on inflation.

Do you need an extract from the Business Register?

When you register, you can also buy a paper certified extract or a digitally certified extract. Some banks require an extract from the Business Register, as do most wholesalers. Before ordering an extract, check whether a digital version is accepted.

How can I pay?

Invoices from KVK can be paid securely with your mobile phone. You do this by scanning the QR code on the invoice with the built-in camera app or a QR code app. Do not use your banking app for this. You will be automatically taken to the payment page, where you can pay directly via internet banking. Will you come to a KVK office to purchase a paper certified extract? Then you pay the invoice at the counter with a debit or credit card.
