What is a Dutch limited liability company?

The Dutch limited liability company (besloten vennootschap met beperkte aansprakelijkheid) is called a “BV”. It is the equivalent of the English Limited and the American Limited Liability Company. The shareholders of the BV are not personally liable for acts performed on behalf of the BV. This is one of the reasons why the Dutch BV is the most preferred company type.
