Requirements of opening a bank account in the Netherlands
If you work in the Netherlands, a bank account is indispensable. With each account you can use the internet for all your transactions, also to foreign countries. Fiscali can link your bank account directly to your administration, so that you always have updated financial records.
Dutch banks require you to live in the Netherlands in order to open an account. You also need to have a valid resident status. If you are a resident in another EU member State, you have additional options. Dutch banks are required to treat you similarly to Dutch residents in that case.
