Dutch Law distinguishes two categories of commercial premises. Depending on the type of premises or the purpose for which it is used, they are referred to as:

1.  so-called “290-premises”. This category includes shops, restaurants, hotels and other premises that all have in common that they are open to the public;

2.  so-called “230a-premises”. This is a separate category for premises that do not qualify as 290-premises or as (private) residential premises. Offices, for example, are 230a-premises.
