Requirements for a Limited liability company
The Dutch allow one or more founders for one company and also one or more shareholders. Since October 2012 the rules have changed; there are no minimum shares anymore (before this date, the minimum share for a limited liability company was 18.000 euro), so you can have as much shares as you prefer. For starting a limited liability company you are also required to have a registered office. The Dike international company can easily arrange this for you; they have a strong partnership build with the Business Center Stadium Breda, so you can hire one or more offices for very attractive prices.
