Companies that supply goods from the Netherlands to companies in other EU Member States (intracommunity supplies) and/or supply services to such companies for which the VAT is due by the recipient of that service (reverse charge mechanism), have to report these supplies to the Dutch Tax Authorities. This report is done through the so called “Opgaaf Omzetbelasting Intracommunautaire Prestaties” (also referred to as IC-Listing or Listing). Up to now, the filing of this Listing was limited to once a quarter if the total remuneration for the Intracommunity supplies did not pass the threshold of € 100.000 in that quarter (and did not in the previous four quarters). However, the European Commission has summoned the Netherlands to change this arrangement. As of 1 January 2016, the threshold is therefore lowered to € 50.000. If the turnover of your companies’ Intracommunity supplies exceeds this amount, you will need to file monthly Listings as of 2016.
