Martijn van de Hel and Adriaan Craita advised a technology company on the application of the Dutch Investment Screening Bill (“ISB”) to potential future participations by (foreign) investors.
To confirm its understanding, Maverick Advocaten requested an informal opinion from the Dutch Investment Review Agency (Bureau Toetsing Investeringen, the “BTI”). The request was prepared in collaboration with consultants specializing in export compliance. The BTI subsequently confirmed that the ISB indeed does not apply to the potential future participations and thus no prior approval is required.
For questions regarding the application of the ISB, and the Dutch Foreign Direct Investment-regime please refer to our website at wetvifo.nl.
