After you’ve filled in all the necessary VAT-forms and sent them back to us, it tends to take up to 14 days before the Tax Office has activated your VAT-number. Once it’s been activated you should receive one letter from the Tax Office including your VAT-number and username (login code) for the online entrepreneur portal you’ll use for your turnover tax report and you’ll receive another letter with the password for this account.

Has it been two weeks?

The reason for this could possibly that something went wrong with the mail company, meaning that your forms didn’t reach the Tax Office or they rejected your request for a VAT-number. In either situation it would be wise to contact the ‘Belastingdienst’ (Tax Office) to try and find out what the exact reason for the delay could be. Their number is: 0800 0543 (free of charge)

Once you’ve given them a call, please let us know if there’s anything we can do to assist you. Send us a message at or through our chat.
