Small independent businesses in the Netherlands that are not able to pay their municipal or Regional Water Authority taxes, may be eligible for a full or partial remission. The municipality will assess whether or not a business qualifies for remission based on their income, assets and expenditure.
It only concerns taxes that are not related to the company or the profession it practises:
- municipal taxes: waste collection charge, sewerage charge, dog tax and property tax (owner's share in the house)
- water board tax: water system charge, water pollution charge and water purification charge
As your income will be determined later on, you will first be granted a postponement of payment.
Please note: Municipalities and Regional Water Authorities are not obliged by law to remit taxes. Ask your municipality or water authority whether a remission is possible.
When do you qualify?
- You are a self-employed person.
- You have a small payment capacity.
- You have no capital.
