KVK

KVK provides information, advice and support to entrepreneurs on the most important themes in the business sector. Our statutory tasks are focused on registering, informing and advising entrepreneurs.

What do we do?
KVK is a source of information for entrepreneurs and a logical place to get in touch with the government. For governments and non-profit organizations, we form the connecting link to enterprising Netherlands.

Register
Information about the company or social activity, the person, the location (s) and the official (s) is recorded for each company and legal entity in the Netherlands. The person is the one to whom the business or activity belongs. KVK manages a number of these registers. That gives entrepreneurs a number of benefits. They get as much security as possible in digital and business economic traffic through one place. It also offers convenience because entrepreneurs only have to give their data once. For KVK as the manager of these registers and making the data accessible, the balance between convenience and fraud prevention and the importance of privacy has the constant critical attention.

Inquire and advice
We work for entrepreneurs. Based on their needs, we develop and deliver (within our legal framework) our information and advice services to support them. We do this from our expertise, research data and with the Trade Register as an important source. We tailor our services to the specific wishes of the segments; starters, self-employed, small SMEs, large SMEs and corporate accounts.

Stimulate and connect
As a government party, KVK is close to entrepreneurs. We are the first point of contact for entrepreneurs. Because of the many questions that we answer every year, we are well aware of what moves entrepreneurs. In order to give an impetus to the regional economy and the innovative strength of Dutch companies, we are looking for new forms of cooperation. We make connections between relevant parties and ensure a good embedding of regional and national initiatives. Our research contributes to the knowledge about the current business climate. For example, government parties, such as municipalities, can develop and test their economic policies. And initiatives can be started to take advantage of opportunities and remove bottlenecks.
