If the size of a BV exceeds a certain threshold, the business qualifies as a structuurvennootschap. As a consequence, it must install a supervisory board or appoint non-executive directors to the board of directors. A BV or NV qualifies as a structuurvennootschap if:
- The sum of the company’s issued share capital and reserves is more than EUR 16 million
- The company is legally bound to appoint a Works Council; and
- The company employs at least 100 employees in the Netherlands.
