On 21 April 2022, the bill regarding the digital incorporation of a BV has been submitted to the lower of house of the Dutch Parliament.

In order to be able to digitally incorporate a BV the notary would have to be connected to a special system. Via this system, the client will appear online for the civil-law notary via a video and audio connection. Since March 2022, civil-law notaries have the possibility to gain their first experience with this system.

The incorporator who wants to establish a BV in the Netherlands would use certain online steps, which should be completed within five working days, or, if applicable, within ten working days.

It remains possible to physically incorporate a BV by going to the notary. In fact, this will be mandatory in specific cases.
