Understanding Dutch VAT
4 hour course
Classroom: £269 +VAT per person
UK businesses trading in the Netherlands need to understand the Dutch system of VAT, as there are many simplifications and rules that are different from those in the UK. The Netherlands is becoming a preferred jurisdiction to channel imports and exports in the EU as a post-Brexit alternative to the UK. This makes it even more crucial to understand the Dutch VAT rules if you are to avoid costly mistakes.
This half-day course will guide you through the most relevant Dutch VAT rules for businesses operating internationally. It explains the customs regimes in the Netherlands, general fiscal representation and limited fiscal representation. The course highlights the main factors to consider when dealing with Dutch businesses or operating your supply chain from a Dutch logistics centre, including the obligation to register for VAT and providing a list of those elements of Dutch input VAT that cannot be recovered.
The course will examine the VAT reporting obligations in the Netherlands, including the method of completing VAT returns, differences between established and non-established companies on VAT obligations, ICP returns and Intrastat declarations. It will also explain the circumstances in which the reverse charge mechanism applies and highlight the differences of this regime with other EU countries.
