VAT and VAT returns (Turnover Tax)
The government levies taxes on all goods and services that are provided. This is referred to as turnover tax (also known as VAT or, in Dutch, BTW). At the moment, the highest rate is 21% and the lowest 6%.
As a business owner, you are required to file VAT returns. You can do this monthly quarterly or annually. Are you looking for help with your VAT return, or interesting in outsourcing your VAT return to an expert? Then you’ve come to the right place. We take care of VAT returns for many of our clients.
The Tax Administration obligates entrepreneurs to submit their VAT tax returns digitally. This also applies to people with new businesses. Submitting VAT returns doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s really nothing more than the total amount of VAT paid (VAT you charged to clients) minus the VAT you paid (to suppliers or services). The period in which you need to file your VAT return is important. Make sure you know which tax period applies to you, as a small business owner.
Filing your VAT return
When you make your VAT return, it’s important that your accounts are in order, and you have good, clear records of your debtors and creditors for that particular tax period. Would you like us to help you file your VAT returns? No problem. We’ll do more than simply filing your tax return – we’ll get your accounts properly organised and establish the rate that applies to your activities.
