Dutch tax entity cannot participate

A Dutch tax entity for VAT purposes cannot participate in the Union scheme of the One Stop Shop. However, companies established in the Netherlands that are part of the tax entity can register. When registering, you provide the VAT identification number of the fixed establishment and not the VAT number of the tax entity.

Register fixed establishment in the Netherlands

Do you want to register your Dutch fixed establishment for the Union scheme? Go to Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk if your permanent establishment has ‘eHerkenning’ (eRecognition).

Does your fixed establishment in the Netherlands not have eHerkenning? Please ask the Chamber of Commerce whether the fixed establishment can be registered in the Commercial Register as a VAT entrepreneur. If so, the fixed establishment can apply for eHerkenning. With this you can register for the Union scheme via Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk.

If the fixed establishment cannot be registered in the Commercial Register at the Chamber of Commerce, it can be registered as a VAT entrepreneur with a Registration form Foreign companies. With the information you get after your registration, you can register for the Union scheme.
