How to do your VAT registration

If you’re new to VAT, this page walks you through the basics of your registration process. Expect the registration to take 5 to 7 days.

Consult a tax advisor for more details on criteria and requirements that apply to you. For example, you could visit the Greenlight Hub in our Amsterdam office, where A4U Taxi can help you out.

What your registration entails

VAT collected from providing services

The VAT you collect from selling your services via the Uber App can fall into two categories:

  1. VAT is charged on transportation services by you to Riders.
  2. VAT is charged by you to Uber on services that you may provide such as marketing and availability services.

VAT on business expenses

Besides collecting VAT, VAT can also be charged to you by several parties. Uber charges you with VAT on service fees and you may incur VAT on other business expenses such as fuel. When you are VAT registered, you may be able to deduct this from your collected VAT.

Small Business Registration

Small Business Regime

Is the amount you have to pay to the tax authority less than 1,883 EUR per year or even 1,345 EUR per year? Then you can apply the ‘kleineondernemersregeling’ ( Small Business Regime). Under this regime, you are entitled to a partial or full discount. Under this regime, you will still charge and claim input VAT like usual, but you can apply a partial or full discount to your net tax payable. Here you will find more detailed information about the requirements.

Dispensation of administrative obligations

When your VAT payable does not exceed the threshold of 1.345 EUR, you are - under certain circumstances - also entitled to a dispensation of administrative obligations. See the site from the Belastingdienst for more information.

Uber Profile - dispensation of administrative obligations

Be sure to provide us with a valid VAT-number (by adding it to your Tax Profile / Invoice Settings page) and to update your tax profile in the Uber App. You should tick the box stating that the Belastingdienst has waived your administrative obligations.

Please note that this option should only be selected when the dispensation of administrative obligations applies to you. If you fall under the ‘kleineondernemersregeling’ this option should not be selected.
