Registration fee

Non-recurring registration fee of € 75

To register a new company or organisation in the Dutch Business Register (Handelsregister), you pay a non-recurring fee of € 75. You can only pay digitally, using your mobile, debit or credit card. You pay when visiting the KVK office to complete your registration.

Note: new prices were introduced on 1 January 2023.

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 the the Business Register, with a new KVK number.

The fee covers the administrative costs. It is a requirement stipulated in the Law on KVK. 

Do you need an extract from the Business Register?

When you register, you can also buy a (paper) company extract from the Business Register. This costs € 16.90. Again, you can only pay digitally. Some banks request that you produce a Business Register extract; wholesalers always request one.  
Have you also registered UBOs, and do you want to order a UBO Register extract? You can only do so online (in Dutch).
