Dutch VAT Return

Please note: only for non-Dutch companies!


When do you have to file a Dutch VAT Return?

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 (btw) 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.

What do I need to file my Dutch VAT return?

If you have to file a Dutch VAT return, you need a Dutch VAT number. Don’t own this one yet? Then we are happy to help you with the application for your Dutch VAT number. In the Netherlands, you submit your very first tax return (manually) by post and then electronically to the Dutch tax authorities.

One Stop Shop VAT Application in the Netherlands

Since July 1, 2021, the threshold amounts for intra-EU distance sales per EU country have been abolished. In its place, a single threshold of €10,000,- has been established (applicable to all intra-EU distance sales of goods, along with the sale of digital services to consumers in the EU).

As soon as you exceed the threshold of €10,000, you charge the VAT rate of the EU country where your customer is located. Then you qualify for the One Stop Shop. You then make a VAT declaration to the Tax Authorities once a quarter. They then ensure that all VAT is distributed over the correct countries.

You can arrange your foreign VAT declaration in 2 ways:

  1. You make a local VAT declaration per EU country in which you have sold.
  2. You submit a One Stop Shop declaration to the Tax Authorities once a quarter. To do this, register your business for the ‘Union scheme‘ within the new system.
