VAT representation in the Netherlands

Trade the right way with expert on-the-ground VAT representation in the Netherlands.

With a number of beneficial tax regulations in place, including an advantageous import VAT deferral mechanism, the Netherlands provides international companies with a favorable gateway for bringing goods into Europe.

Appointing a Dutch tax or VAT representative enables overseas organizations without a physical base in the Netherlands to access these benefits. A representative can also assist with VAT refunds and facilitate the safe passage of goods through the Netherlands. However, the breadth and quality of the service you receive will very much depend on the type of representative you select.

Limited or general representation?

An international client may appoint either a general or a limited tax representative to act on their behalf. A representative with a limited license provides essential services relating to importing goods and their subsequent supply to the end customer. Very few are VAT specialists, however.

In contrast, a general VAT representative can advise on a diverse range of matters around VAT and import duties, including reverse charge mechanisms, tax exemptions, lodging appeals and various other topics. Furthermore, unlike a limited representative, a general VAT ‘Rep’, can offer advisory support further along the supply chain – for example while goods are being held in storage awaiting ongoing travel.
