As per 1 August 2021 it should have been possible to digitally incorporate a BV, however the Ministry of Justice & Security has requested a postponement for a maximum of 1 year as they have to complete the legislative process.
The so called DOBV-system (Digital establishment of a BV), managed by the notary and with which the notary can identify a founder online, speak to the founder, explain, and execute the deed of incorporation is ready and awaits the introduction of the corresponding legalisation.
In the Autumn of 2021 civil-law notaries will have the possibility to gain their first experience with the system. Also, they can provide feedback on the use of the system and the corresponding instructions, information, and guidance. The received feedback will be used to improve the system further.
It remains possible to physically incorporate a BV by going to the notary. In fact, this will be mandatory if there is a suspicion of identity fraud.
