New invoice requirements

The Dutch government is currently working on implementing new invoice requirements.

Changes that have been announced include those for:

  • Simplified invoices
  • Electronic invoices
  • Reference to the reverse charge mechanism on invoices

The new rules are scheduled to take effect as of January 1, 2013. Even though this seems far away, system changes and testing are known to be time consuming and it is therefore important to make an early start.

In future editions of this newsletter we will inform you in more detail about the changes, as soon as they have been accepted by the Dutch government.
