Private Limited Liability Company | N.V. / B.V.

The “B.V., Besloten Vennootschap” and also herein further referred to as B.V., is a Private Limited Liability Company. This is a very common form of corporation, due to the flexibility that it offers. The private limited liability company is similar to the N.V., in Dutch: Naamloze Vennootschap” which is a Limited Liability Company.

  • Highly flexible entity;
  • Tax efficient, if structured right;
  • Incorporation is quick and straight forward;
  • There are no minimum capital requirements;
  • Shareholders meet every year;
  • Accounting records is obligatory.

 

The differences between the B.V. and the N.V. are:

  • The BV has registered shares only;
  • The Articles of Incorporation can determine that the shareholders can be held liable for the debts of the BV;
  • The Articles of Incorporation of the BV can contain a different manner for dissolution of the company;
  • If preferential rights should be attached to shares, such should be provided for in the Articles of Incorporation of the BV;
  • Delivery of shares of an BV can only take place in the manner as provided for by law;
  • There is no distinctive financial regime such as for the “large” NV;
  • There is a more flexible regulation for convening shareholders meetings for the BV than for the NV;
  • Only the BV has the possibility of a company “managed by shareholders”.

 

Public Partnership

The Public Partnership is a limited partnership in which there is a distinction drawn between the limited partners and the general or managing partners. The general or managing partners manage the affairs of the Public Partnership and represent it in dealings with third parties. A limited partner however contributes to the partnership a certain amount of capital. His liability is limited to the amount of capital contributed. A limited partner is prohibited from directly managing the affairs of the Public Partnership, however he can represent the general partners as their attorney-at-fact.

 

Popular features of a Public Partnership:

  • Distinction between limited partners and managing partners;
  • Formed by a notarial or a private deed;
  • The Public Partnership is not considered a separate entity for profit tax purposes.

 

Sole Proprietorship

A proprietorship (eenmanszaak in Dutch) is a form of business where there is no distinction between the business assets and personal assets. The owner is in this case personally liable for all obligations of the business. International individuals need a business license in order to establish a sole proprietorship if they wish to do so. For a proprietorship, business income or loss is reported on the owner’s individual income tax return.

Foundation

A foundation (or stichting in Dutch) is a legal entity, commonly used for charitable purposes. Foundations are also frequently used as the legal owner of assets of which others hold the economic ownership. A foundation can for example act as custodian or trustee of assets, or for the purpose of investing, administering and managing assets on behalf of third parties.

The main difference between a foundation and a corporation, is that foundation has neither members nor shareholders, nor a capital divided into shares.

 

Offshore online casinos/ online gaming

Companies that offer online gambling, gaming and online entertainment, are considered offshore online operators. While the company is registered in Curaçao, its clientele is exclusively international, offering attractive tax rates. Curaçao offers an attractive and easy setup and licensing process.

 

Common benefits of online casinos in Curacao:

  1. Opportunity to conduct a licensed international business;
  2. A single type license that covers all types of online gaming products;
  3. A simple procedure for obtaining a license;
  4. Cost efficient compared to other jurisdictions;
