Starting your own company in the Netherlands

For some time now and after some discussion, I decided to start my own data analysis company and named it “biodata services”. The domain name is registered but I need to build the corresponding website and come up with a portfolio of the related activities!

Registering at the Chamber of Commerce Kamer van Koophandel

Registering as Sole Proprietorship zelfstanding ondernemer (also called *eensmanzaken**) is simple, cheap (50€) and rapid (~30min). All you need to provide is:

  • An adress where to affiliate your company
  • A name for your company.
  • a description (in dutch) of the company activities
  • 50€
