VAT in the Netherlands

The European system of value added tax can be confusing to outsiders. Unlike sales tax, which applies only to the point of sales, VAT applies to the entire value chain. This unique approach is enforced by the EU, but member states retain the right to apply different rules in individual cases. And as you may expect from the generally complex Dutch system, no other country on Earth has as many exceptions to the rules surrounding VAT as the Netherlands does.

As a result, Dutch VAT is a thoroughly complex affair. Sorting out all the details can be a daunting task. At the same time, however, compliance is highly formalized and failure to follow proper procedures is often punished swiftly with substantial fines. Would you like to make sure your VAT in the Netherlands is handled correctly? If so, Koppel Services is happy to help.
