What to do in the event of a death?

When someone passes away, this marks the start of an emotional, difficult time for the bereaved. You will often have to sort out lots of practical matters, such as deregistering the deceased from the Business Register. The staff at the KVK Bereavement Support Team is here to help.

How does the KVK Bereavement Support Team work?

Because no two situations are the same, we help everyone personally. After someone has died, follow these steps:

  • Send an email to nabestaandendesk@kvk.nl
  • In the email, state your name and phone number
  • And indicate the deceased person’s KVK number.

We will contact you as soon as possible.

Link with Personal Records Database

The Business Register is linked to the Personal Records Database, which means that as soon as someone dies, our records are updated too. If you, as the deceased entrepreneur’s next of kin, do not reach out to us, our staff will contact you.
