Virtually every company which is conducting business in the Netherlands has to register itself in the Trade Register of the Dutch Chamber of Commerce. 

Everybody who wants to do business in the Netherlands can rely on the information provided by the Trade Register about other companies, for instance prospective  Dutch partners, customers or suppliers. The information contained in the Trade Register is in essence accessible by the public.

Not only corporate data (such as legal form, etc.) can be derived from the Trade Register but also information about the bodies and officials of the company, the authorities they may have to represent the company, the branches of the company and its sole (100%) shareholder (if applicable).

Most companies that are registered with the Chamber of Commerce also need to file certain financial information about their company on an annual basis. Also this  information is accessible by the public. For more information about these filing requirements please consult the page Filing requirements with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce.

The persons who are responsible to register and file information with the Chamber of Commerce (usually the directors) may be held liable for any omission or default in the registration and filing.

We have direct access to the database of the Chamber of Commerce and we are gladly prepared to assist you with gathering information about your Dutch partners, clients or suppliers. We can also deal with the registration requirements for your business.

Please feel free to contact us, if you require more information.
