Access code and payment

Searching for companies in the Business Register is free of charge. You can search by company name, the KVK number, or address. To request company information, you need an access code.

Applying for an access code

To order products from the Business Register, or to file financial statements online, you need an access code.

When you apply for an access code, you must select a payment method to pay for Commmercial Register products. This means that you will not need to fill in your details every time.

Apply for an access code (only in Dutch)

*Please note: to finalise payment for your product you will be redirected to a Dutch language payment environment. If you need help navigating this Dutch environment, you can call +31 (0)88 585 15 85.

Tip: To order a paper or digital certified extract you do not require an access code.

Requesting an extra access code

If you want to request an extra access code, in step 2 (Your preferences) you will receive the notification that an access code for this business already exists. You can ignore this notification and continue with your request.

Input funding

If your organisation receives input funding (only in Dutch), please contact the Service Centre (only in Dutch) for a new access code.

How can you pay?

If you have an access code, there are two ways you can pay: via Pay with credit or Direct debit mandate.

1. Online payment

You make a payment in advance to create a credit balance with a credit card or via iDEAL.

If you pay via online payment, you can request extensive business details from the Business Register, with the exception of a paper extract.

How does online payment work?

You make a payment in advance to create a credit balance with a credit card or via iDEAL. You can make this payment via your personal page once you have logged in.

When consulting information from the Business Register, this required payment will be debited from your credit balance. You can increase your credit balance at any time.

Log in to your personal page (only in Dutch)

What is the advantage of online payment?

  • You do not require a Dutch bank account.
  • You will have an immediate overview of the costs on your personal page.

How can I change my payment method?

You may also pay via direct debit mandate. You can change your payment method via this form (only in Dutch); please always state your bank account number. If there are multiple users, only the main user may change the payment method.

2. Via Direct debit mandate.

You may pay for Handelsregister products via direct debit mandate or via online payment. With direct debit mandate (only in Dutch), you give permission to have payments debited directly from your bank account.

Changing the payment method

You can change the payment method to direct debit mandate via the form (only in Dutch).

Changing the bank account number

You can report a new bank account number via the form (only in Dutch).

Changing the billing address

If you want to change your billing address, you can report this via the email form. Always state both the new and the old billing address.

Request a copy of an invoice
