Do's & Don'ts

How do I enter your VAT number correctly?

A correct Dutch VAT number consists of three elements:

  • A country code: For the Netherlands, this is NL
  • A base number: This number consists of nine digits
  • A branch addition: This addition indicates which branch of your company it concerns. For the head office, enter B01. You can indicate other branches with B02, B03, etc. 

It is important that you enter the VAT number without spaces or dots.

If your company is from a different country than NL please inform yourself about the VAT number specifications regarding to your country.
