Establish-a-crowd-funding-company-in-the-NetherlandsThe Netherlands is one of the friendliest countries in Europe when it comes to the adoption of new financial technology. One of these technologies refers to the use of cryptocurrencies when performing purchases. However, investors can set up various types of businesses in the financial sector, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which usually need funds for starting operating. This is also the case of Dutch startup companies. In order to meet these types of companies’ needs crowd funding platforms have started to emerge everywhere in the world, the Netherlands included.

Investors who want to open crowd funding platforms in the Netherlands must first register a company in this country. Our Dutch company formation consultants can assist with the registration of the business.

Legislation related to crowd funding in the Netherlands

One of the greatest advantages of setting up a crowd funding business in the Netherlands is that the government has created a legal framework which sets out the regulations under which these companies can carry out their activities.

According to the regulations imposed by the Dutch Financial Market Authority and the National Bank, there are four types of crowd funding companies which can be set up:

  • -          equity-based platforms;
  • -          loan-based platforms;
  • -          donation-based platforms;
  • -          reward-based platforms.

Dutch equity and loan-based crowd funding companies must obtain operating licenses from the Financial Market Authority.

Our company registration agents in the Netherlands can offer information on these licenses.

Why open a crowd funding company in the Netherlands?

Foreign investors who want to set up Dutch crowd funding platforms should know that apart from the types of companies they can register in this area, the country was an European leader on the crowd funding market in 2016. This Dutch industry gathered 128 million euros for local startups in 2015. The investment limits for equity and loan-based crowd funding were raised to 40,000 euros, respectively 80,000 euros last year which made possible for Dutch companies developing sustainable projects to thrive.
