If you intend to start a bus/coach or taxi company in the Netherlands as a general partnership (vennootschap onder firma, VOF), you are required to have a declaration of collective transport. With this declaration, you confirm that the partners run the bus/coach or taxi company at their joint expense and risk. This declaration is required to be eligible to apply for a business permit to operate a taxi service or a community licence to offer bus or coach services.
How to apply?
You can find the declaration of collective transport at Kiwa Register's website. Please send in the Declaration of collective transport form (Dutch) together with your application for the business permit or community licence.
