After applying for a Dutch VAT number, you are obliged to file a periodic return for Dutch sales tax. In the Netherlands, the standard VAT return period is quarterly. Monthly returns are only required if a company has to pay more than €15,000 in VAT per quarter. In addition, monthly returns may be required if a company is often late with VAT payments. Resident companies that are liable for less than €1,883 per year and have an intra-Community delivery and purchase value of less than €10,000 must file an annual declaration.
