Change of company owners - BV

Change of company owners

A change of ownership of a Dutch company (the most common form of which is Dutch BV) occurs through the sale of part or all of its shares (participation interests). BV will be happy to arrange a BV change of ownership transaction for you, including advising on its tax implications and preparing the necessary legal and accounting documentation in accordance with Dutch law.

How is the change of company owners going?

The sale of the BV form to the company is carried out on the basis of an agreement between the parties with the involvement of a notary. Before that, preparatory work is being carried out. The parties to the BV purchase transaction can be residents of any country. During the notarial transaction, it is necessary to identify and verify the participants. The price of the purchased company (its shares) must be set by the parties not only by agreement, but also in accordance with the requirements of the law. You can order the development of a share transfer agreement from us.

In most cases, BV sales can be carried out remotely.


What should be considered when changing the owner of a BV?

It is important to comply with the provisions of the law on the procedure for determining the value of a transaction with BV shares in order to avoid increased attention from the Belastingdienst and subsequent additional tax assessment. Contact for advice on analyzing the reliable purchase price of BV and preparing the necessary documents.

We also advise to analyze in advance the tax consequences of buying BV shares on both the buyer's and the seller's side, taking into account the tax residency of each of the parties. As a result, you will be able to model the personal tax burden resulting from the transfer of rights to shares. We are talking about the seller's tax on profit from the sale of BV, the future buyer's tax on dividends, withholding tax, avoidance of double taxation of dividends from a Dutch company and a number of other nuances. We recommend that you contact specialists at an early stage of structuring the transaction in order to avoid unforeseen tax consequences.
