Chamber of commerce statutory accounts

In the Netherlands, corporations are legally required to annually file their so-called statutory accounts with the Chamber of Commerce. The documents have to be filed digitally through the Standard Business Reporting or SBR. Timely filing of the accounts is of great importance as late filings can lead to serious liability claims and penalties. Late filings are seen as an economic crime.

Brick Business Services will ensure that your company is fully compliant with this legislation.

Standard minutes of annual shareholders meetings

The annual accounts have to be approved by the shareholders on the annual shareholders meeting within a specified time after the end of the financial year. Brick will arrange the draft minutes to be signed by the shareholders. After approval, the annual accounts have to be filed with the Chamber of Commerce within an eight-day timeframe. Brick Business Services will ensure the correct and timely filing for you.

Dividend distribution test

In case shareholders decide to a dividend pay-out, the board of the company has to approve of the shareholders’ resolution before actual pay-out is allowed. Through the so-called distribution test, the board has to make a judgement whether the dividend payout may endanger the continuity of the company for over the period of one year. If so, the board has to withhold its approval to avoid personal liability in case of bankruptcy.

Brick Business Services will provide your board with the necessary information to make the correct decision.

We make sure we always have a secured backup and that these documents are available to you, the moment you need them.

WWFT compliance check

Nowadays one of the most important and far-reaching obligations imposed on a company under the Wwft (law against money laundering and terrorism financing), is the required extensive client survey before the client relationship can be built. Brick can assist you with this often difficult and time-consuming task, throughout our partnership with ‘Your Dutch Compliance Partner’.

Opening bank account

Due to tightening compliance regulations, opening a bank account for a new enterprise with one of the Dutch banks has become a difficult and time-consuming exercise. Especially with foreign ownership. Brick Business Services can assist you and guide you through this process.
