Assistance with VAT audits, audits and horizontal monitoring

The Dutch Tax Authorities regularly conduct tax audits in response to turnover tax returns or tax rebate applications submitted. In the event of an audit, you must be able to submit the correct documents, giving the Dutch Tax Authorities to proper insight into the figures. Sampling is also used in some cases. RSM can assist you with tax audits by the Dutch Tax Authorities. RSM's consultants know what to look out for and are aware of the formal and substantive rules.

Horizontal monitoring gives you control

Horizontal monitoring gives you a head start on an audit by the Dutch Tax Authorities. Together with a reliable and certified tax partner, such as RSM, you perform your own audits annually. Together, we draw up a 'tax control framework', thus assuming the role of the Dutch Tax Authorities. Based on the results, we prepare an agreement with the Dutch Tax Authorities on what needs to be done to become and remain fully tax compliant.

This horizontal monitoring gives the Dutch Tax Authorities more confidence in your tax management and considers you 'in control'. This reduces the need for unexpected audits.
