Below you can read exactly what a bank does. And what you can find in this register. Finally, we will explain how you can search the register.
A bank offers various services, such as attracting savings from consumers and deposits from firms, and lending to consumers and firms. They also provide advice, financial intermediation and payment services. Read more about the supervision of Dutch banks and foreign banks in the Netherlands .
The register lists all Dutch licensed banks, and foreign banks operating in the Netherlands with a European passport. It also lists all banks that are exempted by DNB from two prohibitions. For each bank, you can see what activities the bank can carry out in the Netherlands. For Dutch banks, you can also see if they can carry out activities in the European Economic Area (EEA).
Before entering a name, you may wish to select a financial service from the “Financial service” dropdown list. Then enter a name or part thereof in the “Statutory name / trade name” search field and click on Search. If you are unsure about the correct spelling of a firm’s name, use an asterisk (*) for part of the name. If you leave the search field empty, your search will produce the full list. If you then click on a search result, you will see the details for that firm.
As a result of the expiry of the transitional period after Brexit, the public DNB Financial Supervision Act (Wft) register for incoming and outgoing notifications from/to the UK has been updated as of 1 January 2021. This means, for instance, that notifications entered in the Wft register for cross-border services to or from the UK, including Gibraltar, via passporting rights or the establishment of a branch, have been removed from the Wft Register. You can find an overview of the notifications that have been deleted here.
We update the register every business day at 06:00.
