About the Dutch Business Register

When you are self-employed or working as a freelancer you have to be registered in the Dutch Business Register in order for other companies to verify who they’re dealing with when they want to hire you. Turning this around, it also means that you can look up any information on the companies that want to hire you as a contractor. The register provides information such as:

  • Name, address and, if available, other contact data;
  • Details in case of multiple branches;
  • Authorised signatories, so you can check if you’re dealing with the right person;
  • The receiver, in case the company is bankrupt.


Searching all this information is free by using your address, trade name or registration number with the Chamber of Commerce. There are only costs when you order products, such as a long list of addresses.

Registered authorised signatories

Especially when you’re working as a freelancer the Dutch Business Register is an important document for reference. Signing a contract and getting the order is key for any company. However for a freelancer the value of the contract may be key for continuity in the near future. Dealing with an authorized signatory and therefore stating the authenticity of the signed contract is essential. The register provides you with that crucial piece of information.
