      How to verify a Dutch business - Company number verification in the Netherlands

      How can I verify a Dutch business is actually registered?

      I have found a Dutch supplier who I'm interested in and I want to find out if they are actually registered in the Netherlands. Is there a company registry for Holland?

      Thank you

      Hi Adrienne,

      Welcome to Wholesale Forum

      You can use the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK - Kamer van Koophandel) to verify if a dutch company is in fact registered in the Netherlands. You can use their KvK search page to look up Dutch company numbers and registered company names. The search page is only available in Dutch, but you can use Google Translate to make sense of it.

      You can also register with the KvK to receive updates about companies you are following. Or you can choose to pay for a single request for more information about a Dutch registered company.

      Any Dutch company should be registered as one of the following legal forms (In English with the Dutch translation):

      There are two types of legal form:

      Legal forms which do not involve legal liability:
      • Sole trader --> Eenmanszaak
      • General Partnership --> Vennootschap Onder Firma (VOF)
      • Limited partnership --> Commanditaire Vennootschap (CV)
      • Partnership --> Maatschap
      Legal forms which do involve legal liability:
      • Limited liability private company --> Besloten Vennootschap (BV)
      • Association --> Vereniging
      • Foundation --> Stichting
      For more information about Dutch legal form you can visit the English version of the site from the following link:If a supplier is registered, it doesn't mean that they are necessarily a reliable supplier nor a legitimate one. We always recommend approaching overseas suppliers with care and, where possible, order samples before gradually increasing the volume of your orders. A visit in person is desirable if you are committing to a large order, but you can use local agents for that purpose.

      If you are having trouble verifying a supplier, please note you can post a new review request at Wholesale & Dropshipping Reviews - Wholesale Forum and we will provide you with a full company review. You can also choose to send us the suppliers' details in private by sending us a private message

      To find thousands of already verified trade suppliers from all over the world, we recommend using the three largest online trade directories of verified wholesale suppliers eSources, Wholesale Deals and Worldwide Brands. All three list thousands of verified wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers and drop shippers. eSources also includes unlimited free eCommerce websites with free hosting if you are planning to expand your business online.

      Hope this helps

      The information can be obtained from the Dutch Company Register (Trade Register). There are also some companies that specialize in obtaining these records, for instance The Dutch Company Register.
