Netherlands Extends Entrepreneur Tax Payment Deadline Amid Virus

May 28, 2020, 5:00 PM

The Netherlands Tax and Customs Administration said Thursday that it is extending tax deadlines for entrepreneurs because of the pandemic.

Entrepreneurs can now apply to postpone payment until Oct. 1, the Dutch tax authority said in a statement.

  • Entrepreneurs get a three-month extension of payment with their first application, the tax authority said. Individuals need only submit an application once for all assessments of income tax, health insurance law, corporate tax, payroll taxes and turnover tax (VAT) for those three months. The tax authority had said May 20 that it was extending some measures.

  • Special extensions can be requested for the other taxes, the tax authority said.
  • Applications can also be made for extensions longer than three months, it added.
