What is a virtual address in the Netherlands?

A virtual address is not directly defined under Dutch law. At the same time a registered office address is a legal requirement for all companies, other legal forms such as coops and partnership and even self-proprietorships established in the Netherlands. 

As a definition, the virtual office address can be explained as a legal office address used by legal persons or sole proprietorship which need to have a legal and or business address to receive correspondence and other important documents without renting an actual physical office space. 

The purpose of the virtual office address is to provide the trade register, Dutch tax authorities and other government bodies with an official address for delivering statutory mail and legal notices, as well as for keeping the company’s shareholder registers. 

The registered address does not need to be in the same part of the country where your main commercial activities are carried out, but does need to be a full, physical postal address with a dedicated desk or office space for your business. The use of a residential address is permitted, but many people prefer to keep their home details private.

How to register a business address with the trade register? 

Any company that is registered with the Dutch trade register shall have an address available as visiting address. If favored also a postal address can be registered. The same counts for a business using a virtual office, shared office center or multi-tenant building. For registration of a company, proof of the right to use the business address shall be provided to the trade register. A copy of a rental agreement can be such proof. 

If it appears from the lease that the office space, or a desk at the address, can be used permanently, the address can be used for registration as a visiting address at the trade register. This does not mean that there shall always be someone present, but the possibility shall be there to be permanently present. 

Registration of a new or changed office address of any type of legal entity or branch office can be done at the Amsterdam trade register by means of a completed address registration form signed by one of the directors. You can find instructions of the trade register and the applicable form 14 here

You have to report the change of address of your business in a week's time. If the address is not updated, it may have consequences for your company's liability.
