Effective date: 1 January 2022

What changes?

Do you do business with the Netherlands from another EU member state? And have you adjusted your VAT return for a previous period? You may have paid too much VAT. This amendment will make it easier for you to get a VAT refund. You will no longer have to file a separate request for VAT refund after already having filed a negative VAT return.

For whom?

  • EU entrepreneurs who do business in the Netherlands.

When?

The change is expected to come into force on 1 January 2022, with retroactive effect from 1 July 2021.

Please note: The effective date of this measure is not yet final. Entry into force is subject to its passing through the upper and lower houses of parliament or proclamation of the Order in Council (Algemene Maatregel van Bestuur, AMvB) or ministerial decree and publication in the Staatsblad or Staatscourant (Government Gazette, in Dutch).
