Legal contracts & compliance
To operate a company in the Netherlands, as anywhere else, means to be sure that all your affairs are in order. We can help you with that, by creating customized agreements based on your personal wishes. That way you, and your company, will always be prepared. For a full overview of legal compliance in the Netherlands, please browse through our compliance page.
Make sure your holding structure is completely legally watertight with our BV holding structure agreements.
Management contract - Price: €200
In a holding structure, the holding company will usually perform 'management' tasks in the operating company. In practice this means that the holding will send invoices for this work to the operating company. This relationship is laid down in a so-called management agreement. A manager does not receive a salary, but a management fee. The company does not have to withhold wage taxes from the management fee.
It’s possible to include other provisions as well.
Employment contract - Price: €200
In case you or anyone else will be employed by one of the Dutch entities, you should have a Dutch employment contract. As an employer, you must withhold taxes from the salary of your staff. In the contract you determine the gross salary of the employee, vacation time and sick days.
Current account agreement - Price: €100
Even if you borrow money from your own company, or if your operating company borrows money from your holding, it is important to record this well. For example when the company needs a bridge loan and you provide this from your personal account. But also when you have a personal bill paid by the BV. You do this with a current account agreement. The Tax Authorities only accept this if the agreements remain 'business-like', meaning that your company could also give this loan to someone else on these terms.

*Compliance with Wtt. Legalee can assist in finding a solution for tax and office for their client through third parties. However, Legalee does not provide this service themselves and therefore is not part of the service of incorporation of a company in the Netherlands. These services are optional services carried out by a third party provider. Providing such services in-house would require a license according to the Wtt (Wet toezicht trustkantoren). Legalee does not possess such license since company formation is the core service of Legalee.
