What is a tax agent in the Netherlands?
Companies subject to VAT in their own country and carrying out transactions subject to VAT in the Netherlands must register for Dutch VAT with the Belastingdienst Tax and Customs Administration.
In the Netherlands, it is not compulsory to appoint a tax agent to take care of your tax reporting obligations. However, it is strongly recommended that all taxable persons not established in the Netherlands use the services of a tax agent to secure all your VAT returns and ensure follow-up with the Dutch tax authorities.
The appointment of a tax agent when registering for Dutch VAT implies the possibility for the agent to act on your VAT returns (VAT Declaration, Intrastat, and EC Sales List) but also to communicate on your behalf with the Dutch tax authorities.
When should I call upon a tax agent in the Netherlands?

How do I register for VAT in the Netherlands?
To register for Dutch VAT, non-established foreign companies must first provide proof of activity in the Netherlands, requiring identification. Before the Dutch authorities will issue a Dutch VAT identification number, the taxable person must provide irrefutable proof that they will be carrying out transactions for which an identification number is required in the near future. Without proof of activity, a foreign taxable person without a permanent establishment in the Netherlands cannot be issued with a VAT number.
The proof can be for a example in a form of a contract, an order form, a warehouse rental contract (in the case of a distribution center), an import document, a transport document, an invoice, or a proof of a merger or business acquistition.
The Dutch tax authorities also require the following documents:
The Dutch VAT number takes around 1 to 2 months to be issued, provided the file submitted is complete. The registration file can be submitted electronically.
VAT identification in the Netherlands is free of charge, and does not involve any tax stamps or other administration fees.
