On August 21st
2017, the Compliance Team of the Tax Administration has started going door to
door visiting businesses. All businesses in the Philipsburg area can expect a
visit in the coming weeks. The purpose of the compliance team is to ensure that
businesses are complying with their tax obligation as well as to update the
database of the Tax Administration.
The team of 8 will request
copies of business licenses, shareholder registration as well excerpts from the
Chamber of Commerce. A questionnaire will be filled in and signed off by the
interviewed business which indicates that the questions were answered
truthfully. Business found non-compliant can be audited by the audit dept.
Businesses are reminded that
based on art. 40 - 48 of the General ordinance on National taxes (Algemene
landsverordening landsbelastingen (ALL)
they are obliged to provide information and access to buildings and grounds
when requested to do so by the Tax Inspector, the Receiver or the foundation SBAB.
