If you trade in vehicles that you own, you can allocate the vehicles to your company's stock digitally. To be able to do so, you will need a 'acknowledgement company stock'. You can request this from the Netherlands Vehicle Authority (RDW). You will also need the acknowledgement of vehicles in company stock in order to request particular authorities, such as:
- reporting vehicles with a Dutch registration in your trading stock
- registering vehicles to someone’s name
- ordering number plates
- issuing certificates of indemnification, with which the former owner can demonstrate that they are no longer liable for insurance, periodic technical inspections motor vehicles (APK) and road tax
Dealer vehicle registration
If you want to drive on public roads in vehicles from your company’s stock, you need a dealer vehicle registration. This also applies to vehicles brought to your business for repairs or modifications, or for vehicles that are not registered (yet). You can apply for a dealer vehicle registration (Dutch).
