Dutch bank account

For starting your business in the Netherlands as an entrepreneur from abroad, you need to apply for your residence permit, get a Dutch Chamber of Commerce number and premises for your business.

Probably you want to do banking in the Netherlands also.

It is good to know that it can take quite some time for the Dutch bank to determine whether you will be permitted to open a Dutch bank account for your business.

The ‘Dutch Business Bank Account’ Quick Scan can help you out.

All you do is fill in the questions and email the completed form as well as the requested documents to the bank of your choice.

Within five business days the bank will let you know whether you qualify to open a bank account in The Netherlands.

If so, the bank will start their normal application process to open a Dutch bank account for your business.
