What are the advantages of choosing a BV in the Netherlands?
One of the first choices you have to make when registering your company with the Chamber of Commerce is the legal form of your company. The legal form is the legal form of your company. The legal form determines, among other things, with which capital you can be held liable, but also how you can get more capital for the company, for example. Starting a BV in the Netherlands has some advantages over other legal forms. These advantages are
- With a BV you have limited liability
- You can lure investors by means of shares
- The shares of a BV are transferable
- The tax is lower than for other legal forms
The first big advantage why it can be wise to start a BV in the Netherlands is that with a BV you only have limited liability. Not the owner/director but the BV itself is liable for possible debts. The owners can only be held liable in case of improper management. This is for example the case when there is tampering with bookkeeping or money is embezzled. Another big advantage when you start a BV in the Netherlands is that you can attract investors by issuing shares. A private limited company has shares. By issuing more shares, more capital can be obtained. The shares in a BV are registered and therefore not freely tradable. With a BV it is often the case that a well-known investor buys in and becomes co-owner of the company. The shares of a BV are also transferable, which ensures the continued existence of the company. These shares are not freely transferable and must be voted on. The last reason why many people choose to start a BV in the Netherlands is the relatively low tax. With a BV in the Netherlands you pay only 16.5 or 25% profit tax. This is very low. In a one-man business, for example, you pay income tax on the profit. The tax bracket is currently 52%.
