Frequently asked questions

We provide personalized knowledge and expertise specifically designed for your business goals

What is VAT (Value added Tax)?

VAT is a general consumption tax, which is supposed to be ultimately borne by the end consumer. The VAT system is designed in such way that all parties in the supply chain are charged with VAT, but only the ultimate consumer is not able to recoup the paid VAT. So, in general, VAT must be included on all invoices throughout the supply chain. The seller receiving the VAT from his client acts as the withholding agent for the Dutch tax authorities. The standard rate is 21%. A reduced rate of 9% applies to basic goods and services. Exports and certain services rendered in connection with exports are zero rated.

Is my company liable to pay VAT when importing goods into the Netherlands from outside the EU?
