The Netherlands applies favourable tax regulations regarding cross-border trade and transactions. Both companies established in the Netherlands and abroad may apply for the required permit to make use of these regulations. Please note: this concerns a permit regarding imports via the Netherlands. In order to acquire such a permit, the foreign company is required to appoint a so-called tax representative in the Netherlands.

The tax representative represents the interests of the principal, organising all VAT issues. The representative is actually responsible for certain issues and therefore goes far beyond being merely a post address for the Tax Department. Bol International has many years of experience and expertise in tax representation, which is an activity of a separate business unit, Bol VAT Rep BV.

The most common services provided to our clients from abroad include preparing and submitting:

  • VAT returns
  • statements regarding Intracommunity Performances
  • and Intrastat statements.

In addition to these regular activities,Bol VAT Rep is an important soundboard to our foreign clients. They rely on us for advice regarding, for example:

  • invoicing requirements
  • reverse charge mechanisms
  • abc deliveries (simplified)
  • exemptions
  • deduction of input tax
  • imports and exports
  • intracommunity performances
  • lodging appeals and objections
  • section 23 licenses
  • first sale principle
  • etc.

Finally, we represent our clients during meetings and negotiations with the Tax Department. Thanks to our extensive international networks, we can represent our customers in the Netherlands and in any other European and several non-European countries. This gives you, as our valued client, the benefit of dealing with a single point of contact.
