Applying for login details to file VAT returns through the old portal

Until 1 July 2024, companies and organisations that are unable to use Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk, can continue to use the old entrepreneurs' portal for their VAT returns. They can apply for login details for this portal.

Please note!

Until 1 July 2024, login details to access the old portal are exclusively available for:

  • entrepreneurs who do not qualify for KVK registration and could therefore not apply for eHerkenning
  • entrepreneurs who cannot use DigiD as a login to Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk
    Only entrepreneurs running a sole proprietorship and self-employed persons can use DigiD.

Most recently updated on: 4 March 2024

However, since 29 January 2024, you can apply for eHerkenning is also available for this group of companies and organisations without a KVK number when you are not registered with the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce (KVK). With eHerkenning without KVK number you can only log in to the Netherlands Tax Administration. This means they can log in to Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk. We will therefore permanently close the old portal for entrepreneurs on 1 July 2024.

Applying for login details for the old entrepreneurs' portal

You can apply for a username and password to access the old portal using an online form (only available in Dutch):

Old portal login details request

Apply for your login details on time

Please note the following:

  • You will receive the login details by post within 10 working days of your application.
  • You will receive 2 different letters: one with your username and one with a password you can use to log in for the 1st time.
  • We send these letters separately to your company's business address.
  • These letters may be delivered on different days.
  • With international post it may take longer to receive both letters.

What you need to know about the old portal

  • With your username and password, you can only log in to the old entrepreneurs' portal. You cannot use these login details for Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk.
  • Please activate your login details as soon as possible after you receive them. You cannot log in to the old portal until you have activated your username and password.
  • After the 1st login, you need to change your password.
  • On 1 July 2024, we will permanently close the old portal for entrepreneurs. That means you need to switch to Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk before 1 July 2024.

Choose how to file your VAT return

  • You file your VAT return yourself on through the old portal until 1 July 2024. To do so, you can apply for login details from us.
  • You switch to Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk. To log in to Mijn Belastingdienst Zakelijk, you need DigiD or eHerkenning.
  • You file your VAT return yourself, using accounting software you have purchased.
  • Your tax service provider files the VAT return on your behalf.

You can, of course, choose to file VAT returns in a different way at any time.

What to do if you have not received login details following your application

The online form allows you to apply for login details for 1st use only. If you have not received login details after your 1st request or if you lost them, you cannot use this form to apply for new login details.

Choose your situation:

Make sure to file your return on time

  • You must always file a VAT return, even if you have nothing to declare over the time period for which you must file a return.
  • You will find the due dates for filing your VAT return and for payment in the overview with filing and payment dates.
  • In the letter 'Vaststelling belastingplicht' (tax liability assessment) you will find for which time period you must file a return. This can be monthly, quarterly or annually.
  • Have you not received the login details on time, or have you lost them? Then choose another way to file your tax return. For example, through a tax service provider, also on a one-off basis if necessary.
