What requirements need to be met to start a business in the Netherlands? What legal forms are there? What taxes do I have to pay? The Chamber of Commerce (Kamer van Koophandel) focuses on the most important aspects of successfully setting up a business in the Netherlands. In the Netherlands registration in the Business Register is compulsory for every company and almost every legal entity. The Chamber of Commerce operates independently and our international trade consultants can help you start your import or export activities.
