File the General Expenditure Tax (ABB) / and Payroll taxes (LH) online

Press Release RCN

For entrepreneurs it is possible to file their ABB/LH online as of February 2019. The Belastingdienst/CN has now digitised this tax return process and this has some major advantages for entrepreneurs.

Simpler process

The process is simpler, quicker and less prone to errors both for the entrepreneurs and for the Belastingdienst. For the entrepreneurs a digital archive will be managed as well.

Besides it is no longer necessary to come to the tax office for a stamp, or to file the

tax return by mail. Digital filing will do.


Entrepreneurs can authorise their tax advisor and then they can both monitor the progress of (already filed) tax returns. They can also indicate if they wish to file their ABB/LH and make payments monthly, quarterly or annually going forward. The Belastingdienst should receive tax declarations and payments within 15 days after the expiration date of the time period.


Should there be any questions, entrepreneurs can contact the helpdesk of the Belastingdienst/CN by telephone + 599 7158545. This is possible from Monday to Thursday from 8 AM till 12 noon and from 2 PM till 4 PM and on Friday from 8 AM till 12 noon. It is also possible to send an e-mail to
