For many companies it is important to dissolve, merge or demerge entities before the 31st of December. Therefore, we would like to draw your attention to the dates as set out below. This includes a view of the legal objection periods and the increased workload towards the end of the year at among others, the Dutch Chamber of Commerce. Due to this increased workload towards the end of the year, a longer processing time for requests should be taken into account.

We have set out the most important dates in a row below.
