Dutch to English translations [Non-PRO] Bus/Financial - Law: Taxation & Customs
Dutch term or phrase:omzetbelastingnummer, loonheffingennummer
These two numbers need to be filled in in a tax form in order to register a new business in the Netherlands.
I can find plenty of definitions for them, but no translations...
Does anyone have any ideas?
‘The Tax and Customs Administration states your VAT number on the letters and forms it sends to you. On some of its forms, the Tax and Customs Administration only uses the Turnover Tax number (omzetbelastingnummer). This number is basically the same as the VAT number, but without the country code NL.’ (http://www.answersforbusiness.nl/regulation/vat-number )
Explanation: loonheffingennummer Translates To : Payroll Tax Number
In line with the Dutch Tax Department's used terminology and specifically
to differentiate between individual entities (= private persons ) who pay
tax and the corporate tax entities required to withhold certain taxes , the
term I use is Payroll Tax Number .
This describes exactly what is being meant here , the number by which ,
the corporate entity ( Agency / Organization etc. ) lawfully required to
withhold certain taxes from the private persons (= who may or may not be
employees ) it pays salary / wages to , is known by the Dutch Tax
The Dutch Social Insurance Bank also refers to this Payroll Tax Number
on their form : A1/(E)101 certificate concerning applicable social insurance
