You only need to visit a KVK office for a few business matters. You can arrange many business matters with us online or by post. A civil-law notary will also be able to take care of various matters on your behalf. You can read below for which business matters you should make an appointment.
Registering or taking over a business
If you wish to register a new sole proprietorship, a professional partnership (maatschap), a general partnership (VOF) or a limited partnership (CV), or plan to take over an existing business or change your legal form, please make an appointment with KVK to finalise your registration.
Before making an appointment with us, you must complete a registration form first.
Changing the legal form and registering an officer
New officers (such as an executive director, partner, associate, or authorised representative) are required to visit the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce personally to register. In addition, you can only change the legal form of your business at our office. However, you must complete a change form first.
You can easily submit most changes using a form. You cannot make an appointment for this purpose.
Scheduling your own appointment
You can schedule an appointment through our website. You should schedule the appointment online with an office of your choice. You will receive an email confirmation. Please keep it at hand. You will need it when reporting to the intercom post at the office, as there may not be a reception desk in every office. You can easily change or cancel an appointment using the link in the email confirmation.
If you wish to visit KVK, you can make an appointment right away. Our offices are open on working days between 8:30 and 17:00. You can view the available dates and times directly in the appointment planner.
