Entrepreneurs' scheme

If you are an entrepreneur and own a van, you may be eligible for the Entrepreneurs' scheme.


  • You are an entrepreneur according to Article 7 of the Turnover Tax Act 1968.
  • You use the van for more than 10% of the total annual mileage for your business.

You must file bpm returns and pay bpm in the following cases:

  • You convert the van into a passenger car.
  • You sell a van that is less than 5 years old to an individual.
  • Your business stops.
  • You drive less than 10% of the total kilometres per year you drive for your business.

If you no longer meet the conditions you have to file bpm returns using the form 'Aangifte rest-bpm - BeĆ«indiging ondernemersregeling of gehandicaptenregeling' (Return of remaining bpm - termination of Entrepreneurs' scheme or Disability scheme, only available in Dutch) and pay the bpm within 1 month after you no longer meet the conditions.

Please note!

If you under declare and pay too little bpm, you may receive an additional tax assessment and a fine.
