Example: BV with one shareholder (person)

A client from Spain wants to set up a one-shareholder bv company to start an e-commerce business in The Netherlands. The client will personally be the sole shareholder. He is currently on a business trip and cannot be present in The Netherlands. He does not speak the Dutch language. He is fluent in Spanish and has a good understanding of English, written and verbally. He already has an address to register the business at.

Incorporation at the Notary
The legal process in which the notary forms the corporate entity.

POA & Translation
We choose to incorporate using Power of Attorney (POA). By using a POA, the client gives the authority to the notary to sign on his behalf. The client has to fully understand what he is signing. If he is present at the incorporation and signs the documents himself, a legal translator has to be present. This is an expensive service, so we proceed by signing using a POA. Because it is a legal obligation that the client knows what the notary signs for on his behalf, he will be provided with a translation of the incorporation documents.

Research costs
The notary carries a large responsibility. It is required by law to conduct a thorough investigation into the persons behind a company.

Chamber of commerce registration
After the notary has conducted the incorporation, the notary submits the relevant documents to the Kamer van Koophandel (the dutch chamber of commerce). The KvK charges a one-time registration fee of 50 euros (no vat applies).
