If you have a business in the Netherlands that owns a company car, you have certain obligations regarding motor vehicle tax, periodic motor vehicle tests and car insurance. However, if you want to stop using your company car for a longer period of time, you may decide to suspend your business vehicle registration (in Dutch).
You can suspend your vehicle registration this digitally using an RDW certificate or your DigiD and Chamber of Commerce number. You can also contact the Netherlands Vehicle Authority (in Dutch) directly or contact a vehicle registration certificate office. You pay a fee to have the registration suspended.
A suspension starts immediately and the duration is 1, 2 or 3 years. You can also apply for different suspension periods for different vehicles. It is not possible to suspend vehicle registrations indefinitely. You can always decide to extend its duration.
