STAK is an abbreviation of Stichting Administratiekantoor. A STAK manages shares of a BV or NV and issues certificates that correspond with these shares. A STAK is used to keep the voting rights at the STAK and transfer the profit entitlement. In other words, this way you can give a person a right to profit without having to provide them with voting rights. The voting rights stay with the STAK and the profit entitlement goes to the other person, because they have a certificate of a share. The STAK receives the dividend and distributes this to the persons holding a certificate of a share. However, you can also choose to give your participants voting rights!
