Open a Dutch Bank Account
CompanyNL’s Banking Solutions – Open a Dutch bank account without a Local Director
Your Dutch company must hold one or more bank accounts, depending on your preference and needs. In a world dominated by compliance rules, regulations, and specific requirements it is not always easy to set up a Dutch bank account. We can help you with this process or we can connect you to one of our banking partners.
Strict compliance with traditional banking
All banks in the Netherlands have strict compliance rules. They need to feel comfortable with your company as their client. This means that banks require a clear business plan and, if available, previous records from the company as proof of eligibility. In addition to that, they will want to know where your suppliers and clients are. Due to the course of the pandemic, regulations and requirements have become stricter as to what companies need to open a traditional bank account.
Dutch director or Shareholder
All traditional Dutch bank accounts such as ABN Amro, ING, and Rabobank always require a Dutch director or shareholder holding a Dutch BSN (Citizen Service Number) this can be a problem for many companies who are setting up in the Netherlands. CompanyNL can help you with this problem.
