Commercial register and tax administration

If you want to start a new business in the Netherlands, you need to register with the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce KVK and the Dutch Tax Administration.

Business.gov.nl offers information on how to register. Registration with the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration happens automatically when you register your business with the Commercial Register (Handelsregister).

If you are opening a branch office of your existing foreign company, you won't have to register with the KVK, but you will need to register with the Dutch Tax Administration (Belastingdienst)
