What happens after I file my return?
After receiving your return we will record your data in our systems. Then we assess if your vehicle must be subjected to an additional check. If an additional check is required, we will make an appointment with you on where and when we will inspect your vehicle.
Do you have to pay bpm? Then we aim to send you a payment message within 7 working days.
After receipt of your payment, we will inform the Netherlands Vehicle Authority (RDW) that they can issue the registration card for your vehicle. You will receive this card by post.
Don't you have to pay bpm? Then we will immediately inform RDW that they can send you the registration card.
Return with a valuation report
Do you submit a bpm return or notification based on a valuation report? In that case you must keep the vehicle at your disposal in its unaltered state during 6 working days after the bpm has been paid. The inspector may request you to show the vehicle at one of the locations of 'Domeinen Roerende Zaken'. You must then show your vehicle for a valuation. It must be in the same condition as you have indicated in the report. This valuation is done at your own expense.
At that location a valuation of your motor vehicle will be carried out. You must pay the additional costs yourself – for example the transport costs to the location. The vehicle must be in the same condition as you have indicated in the valuation report. After the inspector has called you, you will only receive the registration card once the motor vehicle has been shown and the valuation has been completed.
Checking your return
After you have paid the bpm, you may still be subjected to an additional assessment following a check of your tax return.
Do you receive an additional assessment after you have sold the motor vehicle? Then you may no longer be able to recover that assessment from the buyer.
Notification if you are allowed to pay the bpm per time period
Are you an entrepreneur holding a permit to pay the bpm per time period? In that case, we will usually inform the RDW immediately after your notification that they can issue a registration card.
Is a revaluation required? In that case, too, we directly inform RDW that they can issue a registration card. After receiving the report on the revaluation the recalculated gross bpm amount will be set. You will be notified of this.
