Trade register

Trade register - Chamber of Commerce


In the Netherlands registration in the trade register is compulsory for almost every company. This means that the register is able to provide reliable answers to such questions as:

  • Does the company with which I wish to do business actually exist?
  • Is the person I am dealing with actually an authorized signatory?
  • What has happened to the company I used to do business with a few years ago?
  • What is the financial situation of a company?


The trade register provides a lot of this kind of information.
