A company on the other hand, will have to register in the Chamber of Commerce’s Trade Register. The Chamber of Commerce passes on the details to the Tax Department, which will register the business for the applicable taxes based on the details received. The Tax Department sends the tax numbers to the registered offices. It is important to have this checked by your tax advisor, as the Tax Department sometimes tends to register you for more taxes than is applicable. The Tax Department automatically sends you the first tax bills and a login code and password to file your tax bill online. Many taxes can be filed electronically.
The main taxes in the Netherlands include:
Non-residents are subject to taxation if they derive a certain income from the Netherlands. Each country has its own way to handle their internal affairs on tax matters. The assumption (if you should have one) that officers respond in the same way as in your country would be wrong. Here strict compliance is expected with the rules that are imposed. This also applies to the tax regulations. You must comply with submission and payment dates and the Tax Department will grant postponement only for certain taxes regarding filing the tax bill and payment of tax. If you are late with filling and submitting you can expect a fine. If you have to pay taxes you pay on time. Otherwise you’ll also get a penalty there. In some cases negotiation with the Tax Department in the Netherlands is very normal thing to do.
