Chamber of commerce
The Netherlands Chamber of Commerce ('Kamer van Koophandel' or KvK) manages the trade register. The Chamber's other tasks are to provide Dutch entrepreneurs with information, stimulate regional trade and industry and advise local and regional authorities.
The first main task of the Chamber of Commerce is to implement economic legislation, including the Trade Register Act. These laws have been introduced to enable businesses to benefit from reliable information recorded by an impartial organisation.
Information is the second main task of the Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber gives out general and specific information to all entrepreneurs operating in the Netherlands. As an independent helpdesk and guide, the Chamber answers questions and points aspiring entrepreneurs in the right direction. Existing businesses are, of course, equally welcome to use the Chamber's services.
The Chamber's third main task is to stimulate the regional economy. The Chamber comments on (regional) government plans, based on its own expertise and on consultation with employer and employee organisations. In doing so, it gives an authoritative voice to regional business and industry.
