1. What does BV mean in Netherlands?

Both the NV and the BV represent separate legal entities.

2. Are there any other differences between BVs and NVs, besides that one of them is private and the other public?

The requirements for BVs are almost identical to the ones for NVs, but there are some differences between the entities. The main ones are outlined below:

  • a) Bearer shares can be issued only by NVs.
  • b) Only NVs are allowed to list shares on the Exchange Market.
  • c) The minimum share capital that needs to be issued and deposited for NVs is 45 000 EUR. No minimum requirement is set for BVs.
  • d) NVs can buy back one tenth of the issued share capital while BVs can buy back the whole capital, on the condition that a single share giving the right to vote is owned by another party.

3. Are the applications for BV registration subject to approval by the government?
According to the current Dutch legislation, no approval from the government is required for the official formation of a private LLC.
4. Are there any requirements regarding BV structure?
Dutch LLCs need to have a minimum of one Managing Director and a Shareholder. The assignment of Supervisors representing the Shareholders in the Managing Board of the company is optional.
5. What role does the Managing Director play?

The Director of a company with limited liability established in the Netherlands does not have to be a national or a resident of the country.

Even other corporations can perform the functions of Managing Directors. The Managing Board (composed of a minimum of one Director) deals with the administration and management of the LLC, its daily routine and business operations. The Managing Board represents the LLC.

In case the Board includes several members, the Articles / Memorandum of Association (AoA / MoA) must specify whether the Dutch LLC can be represented individually by each member, or joint action is required. Regardless of the distribution of obligations and tasks among the Directors, each of them can, generally, be held personally liable with regard to the company’s debts.

6. What are the functions of the Supervisory Directors, if relevant?

The Board of Supervisors does not have executive powers and cannot represent the LLC. Its purpose is to monitor the operations of the Managing Board and the main course of development of the business, to support the activities of the Management and to always act in agreement with the best interests of the LLC. In this respect the AoA can require the prior approval of the Board of

Supervisors for particular transactions. The establishment of a Board of Supervisors is not mandatory for the incorporation of a Dutch LLC. It is rather an instrument that can be used by the Shareholders to monitor the operations of the Managing Board.

Read more: 

7. Does the incorporation of BV require the existence of Shareholders?
Yes, at least one Shareholder is needed to establish a BV. The Shareholder is the actual owner of the company.
8. What does the Incorporation Deed represent?

A Dutch LLC is established by a minimum of one incorporator through the execution of an Incorporation Deed before a Latin Notary. The Deed contains the new LLC’s constitution that is considered as company law. It must cover all procedures of the entity and is relevant to all operations of the newly established company.

Deed of incorporation Netherlands includes the AoA that present the following information:

  • Company name;
  • Registered office,
  • Purpose and range of activities;
  • Amount of authorized capital, stated value and share class;
  • Financial year;
  • Managing directors’ authority;
  • Appointment of a Board of Supervisors;
  • Any limitation on the transfer and issue of shares;
  • Other relevant rules with respect to organization of meetings and adoption of resolutions. The Incorporation Deed can be executed only when certified by the Latin Notary.
