BV And NV: Differences Between The Two Limited Companies
Quick fact: Around XNUMX% of our clients choose for a BV company. Unless you want to be publicly listed (NV), or you are looking to form a charitable foundation (Stichting). The Dutch BV is likely the company type you are looking for.
BV or NV: how do you choose which one is best for you?
Potential clients often ask us which option is the best fitting choice: the BV or the NV. The BV is comparable to a limited liability company, which means that the liability for the owner is limited. Some comparable structures are the private liability company in the UK (Ltd), the French société a responsabilité limitée (SARL) and the German Gesellschaft mit beschrankter Haftung (GmbH).
The NV is comparable to a corporation. The NV is also the legal entity that is traded at stock exchanges. In the UK, the NV is comparable to the public liability company (plc), in Germany to the Aktiengesellschaft (AG) and in France to the Société Anonyme (SA).
The articles of association determine a large part of the rules regarding the possibility of transferring shares freely in a BV. Oftentimes, there are certain transfer restrictions that limit some (or all) shareholders. In that case, the other shareholders need to give their consent when a shareholder wants to transfer shares.
Also, the other shareholders have a preemptive right to buy shares from a selling shareholder. Since XNUMX the flex-BV was introduced. One of the most notable changes was the decision to cancel the obligation to bring in a minimum share capital in order to start a BV completely. For most companies, a BV structure is the best option.

Dutch Limited Liability Company (Dutch BV)
A limited company is established by at least one incorporator, either a legal entity or an individual. The entity or individual, resident or foreign, can act both as an incorporator and a complete management board for the new company. A Dutch BV can be registered remotely by the director(s) and shareholder(s).
It is not compulsory to have a secretary. If the shareholder is just one, this does not result in personal liability. Still, the name of the shareholder will appear on the registration certificates of the company prepared by the Commercial Registry. Shareholdings are recorded in the register of shareholders maintained at the company’s office.
To start a business in the Netherlands, an incorporation deed is drafted in the presence of a public notary and submitted to the Trade Registry at the Commercial Chamber and to the Tax Office.
The official incorporation deed must be prepared in Dutch (our company will also prepare an English version of the notary deed for your convenience). This document lists the details of incorporators and initial board members, their participation amounts and payments made to the starting equity.
The deed also contains the AoA (Articles of Association) that include, as a minimum, the following details: company name, city location of the registered office, company purpose, amount of authorized capital (EUR), share division and share transfer conditions.
Intercompany Solution will check before we start your Dutch business if the chosen company name is not already in use as a trademark or a commercial name.
This is done as the holders of prior registrations have the right to require a name, The name of your company must either end or begin with “BV”. In addition to the company name, a BV has the freedom to choose one or several trade names to label the whole business or parts of it.
Shares and share capital
Incorporators can decide on the amount of share capital; A minimum share capital of €XNUMX is required.
A single share with a corresponding voting right is required as a minimum. Shares can have profit and/or voting rights.
