Corporate Tax Compliance in The Netherlands

Tax compliance for Dutch companies

All companies in the Netherlands must pay attention to the corporate tax compliance requirements. Dutch companies can choose to set up an internal department to take care of the taxation matters or they can request the services of a professional accounting company. Regardless of the chosen method, companies must observe all the laws and regulations for corporate taxation in the Netherlands

Corporate taxation in the Netherlands

Dutch companies are taxed on their worldwide income while non-resident companies are taxed only on their Dutch-source income. Branches in the Netherlands are usually exempt from the withholding tax on profits. 

The corporate tax rate in the Netherlands is 25% and a lower rate of 20% is in place for profits of up to 200,000 EUR. A holding company taxation regime applies. In order to avoid double taxation on income, the Netherlands has signed a series of double tax treaties with countries worldwide including the United States and the United Kingdom.

The corporate income tax return in the Netherlands

Any company incorporated in the Netherlands as well as any foreign company which is considered a tax resident must file annual corporate income tax returns. The tax year in the country does not usually coincide with the calendar year. However, the Dutch Tax Authorities will issue a preliminary income tax assessment in January. 

Companies in the Netherlands are required to file a corporate income tax return within five months of the end of the financial year. Once the tax return is filed and examined by the authorities, a final corporate income tax assessment is issued.

VAT taxpayers in the Netherlands can apply for a monthly VAT return. A yearly VAT return can be requested in certain conditions.
