A BV can be established with any desired capital, for example 10,000 or 1,000 euros, but a capital of 1 euro or 0.10-euro cents is also enough. The choice of the height of the capital is up to the shareholder.

A company can also be funded with loans, not just share capital funds. The share capital that is adopted at incorporation has to be paid into the company’s bank account.

Existing BVs can also change their share capital if needed. If you have a BV in which you have a current account debt to the BV, reducing the share capital (is less than EUR 18,000) is an option to also reduce the current account debt. After all, you need to pay less to the BV for the shares acquired.

If you would like assistance with the amendment of the articles of association based on the above, I request that you contact us.
