When do you have to apply for a VAT number in the Netherlands
and submit regular advance returns?
Exceeding the threshold of €100,000
Exceeding the annual VAT threshold usually means that an additional registration of a VAT number (in the country whose delivery threshold has been exceeded) becomes necessary and, of course, advance returns, declarations, etc. are required.
The delivery threshold refers to imports into an EU country (distance selling) within one calendar year.
The delivery threshold in the Netherlands is €100,000. If, for example, a trader registered in Germany sells his goods to the Netherlands and the turnover from the Netherlands exceeds €100,000 within one calendar year, then the delivery threshold has been exceeded and registration and returns in NL become mandatory!
Storage in the Netherlands
Storage in Dutch warehouses
Not only the exceeding of the threshold, but also the storage of goods triggers VAT obligations in Europe. Anyone who stores goods in Holland usually has to be registered for tax purposes.
After the opening of the Dutch Amazon marketplace, it can be assumed that in the foreseeable future there will also be Dutch Amazon warehouses and that storage will no longer be limited to warehouses in Germany. As soon as this is the case, or who currently stores his goods in other warehouses in Holland, the registration for a Dutch VAT ID is essential.
Note: Advance VAT returns must be submitted from the day of the first storage!
