What other services do you offer?

How can I dissolve my BV as soon as possible?
This depends entirely on the presence of assets on your BV’s balance sheet. To liquidate your BV quickly, there should be no possessions (assets) on your balance sheet. If the assets side is zero, your BV can be dissolved and deregistered from the Chamber of Commerce within a few days. If there are multiple assets and debts, the normal liquidation procedure will have to be followed, which takes 2.5 months.
How long does a liquidation take?
If your BV has no assets then turbo liquidation can be applied and your BV can be dissolved and deregistered from the Chamber of Commerce within a few days. If there are multiple assets and debts, then the normal liquidation procedure will have to be followed, which takes 2.5 months.
How long does a turboliquidation take?
A turboliquidation can be completed in 5 days. please note! This is only possible if there are no assets on the BV’s balance sheet.
Can I dissolve my BV immediately if there are still debts under the BV?
This is generally possible. Please note that your creditors can still take a number of legal measures after the dissolution of your BV, such as, among other things, requesting the reopening of the liquidation of BV at the court or filing a lawsuit if there are grounds to do so. Also, if there are tax debts, you can simply dissolve your BV. We often see the tax authorities themselves requesting the dissolution of a BV to avoid any further payment problems.
A shareholder does not respond or does not want to cooperate in the dissolution is this a problem?
That depends, if the majority of shareholders do want to decide to dissolve then this need not be a problem. Your BV’s articles of association usually state that you can dissolve the BV by a majority of votes at the BV’s general meeting. Problems often arise if there are only two shareholders with 50% of the shares each, where one shareholder does not want to cooperate in a dissolution, there are solutions, ask about the possibilities.
Do I have to have an advertisement placed in a newspaper in the event of a dissolution?
In the case of a turbo liquidation, you do not need to place an advertisement in a newspaper, this is only necessary when applying a normal liquidation of your BV.
I have not filed my annual accounts(s), can I still dissolve my BV?
Yes you can, a director of a BV does have an obligation to file financial statements for a financial year that has ended. If you fail to do so, you risk having to pay a fine. You do not have to prepare and file financial statements with the Chamber of Commerce for the current year in which you dissolve.
I only have some money in the bank, can I still dissolve my BV?
You will first have to distribute the money or if it is a small amount, make it up or spend it. We can prepare the distribution documents for you. Dividend tax may be payable on a distribution.
What is a remission agreement?
You, as the sole shareholder, have borrowed money from your BV. This means that the BV still owes money to the shareholder. In this case, you can decide to cancel the debt. However, you must put this in writing by means of a so-called remission agreement. You do this for the tax authorities because the waiver is a form of donation.
