Deloitte VAT Compliance Center
In control of your tax process
Businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions face tremendous challenges in keeping pace with each jurisdiction’s indirect tax laws and an array of compliance and reporting requirements. Deloitte has proven experience in helping clients establish and managing their local, regional as well as global indirect tax compliance.
The VAT Compliance Center of Deloitte will take care of all the compliance activities and assist with the administrative obligations of your company in the Netherlands. The VAT Compliance Center will prepare and file the periodical Dutch VAT returns, the quarterly or monthly European Sales Listings, and the monthly Intrastat returns. Furthermore, the VAT Compliance Center will instruct your company on the payment of Dutch VAT and other administrative obligations, as well as inform you on potential VAT issues. In addition to the Dutch VAT obligations, the VAT Compliance Center can also take care of VAT compliance activities and administrative obligations in other European countries.
VAT free import
In the Netherlands there is a special regulation that allows companies to avoid payment of import VAT at the time of customs clearance. The VAT Compliance Center can assist with the application of this regulation and consequently your company can avoid a cash flow loss.
Zero rated purchase of products
In addition to the VAT free import, there is also a regulation that allows companies to purchase certain (commodity) goods free of VAT. The VAT Compliance Center can assist you with the application of this regulation. Again, a VAT cash flow loss can be avoided.
Fiscal representation of non-Dutch companies
In order to apply for one of the above regulations, your (non-Dutch resident) company must have a fiscal representative in the Netherlands. The VAT Compliance Center takes care of the appointment of such a representative.
Periodical VAT checks and assistance on compliance issues
The VAT Compliance Center can periodically check VAT returns, European Sales Listings, and Intrastat returns filed by your company and assist with any issues related to the Dutch VAT obligations. In addition, our Deloitte colleagues can assist your company with issues related to other taxes.
The VAT Compliance Center prepares and files Dutch VAT reclaims on behalf of your company, as well as VAT reclaims in other European countries. This means that we will timely inform you on the due dates for the filing of these reclaims in or der to avoid the loss of refundable VAT.
In case of a VAT audit by the Dutch tax authorities the VAT Compliance Center will represent your company during the audit process. This also includes the preparation of, and representation during, objections and appeals.
Furthermore, the VAT Compliance Center has extensive experience with many ERP systems. This enables us to program your system in order to easily process the information required for the filing of Dutch or European VAT returns, European Sales Listings, and Intrastat returns. This will minimize the time and costs needed to prepare these returns.
