Filing deadline tax returns

by Folkert Mijlof

When do I need to submit and file the tax return? is a commonly asked question from businesses and individuals in the Netherlands. We assist companies and private individuals with their Dutch tax filing obligations regarding VAT, Wage tax, Corporate tax and personal income tax. When the tax return must be filed depends on the tax forms issued by the Dutch tax authorities.

Questions arise like:

  • What is the filing deadline for the VAT return?
  • When does the tax has to be paid?
  • Can I have an extension with filing the tax return?
  • What kind of tax years are in the Netherlands?

Below we have made an overview what the filing deadline is for the wage tax return, VAT return, corporate income tax return and personal income tax return with respect to the tax years 2015 and 2016.

Extension to file

Corporate income tax / income tax

MFFA Tax Advice have arranged a special time extension program with the Dutch tax authorities. This means we can file/prepare the corporate income tax and the personal income tax 5 months later at the Dutch tax authorities. Please contact us if you also would like to have this.

VAT / wage tax

For the VAT return and wage tax returns it is not possible to arrange a special extension program with the Dutch tax authorities. These periodical tax returns must always be filed before the deadline.

With respect to paying the issued assessments, the Dutch tax authorities allow businesses and individuals to have an extension in payment up to a certain amount. They also allow to pay in instalments instead of lumpsum.
