Horizontal monitoring

When a tax returns is filed, the Tax Administration doesn’t usually check it until later. This creates administrative burdens and a long period of uncertainty. We remove the burden and uncertainty from our clients by working with the Dutch Tax Administration (Belastingdienst). How? We’ve signed an agreement with the Tax Administration so that our clients can take advantage of horizontal monitoring (horizontaal toezicht). And that has benefits all round.

What is horizontal monitoring?

Think of it as a hallmark for tax advisers. It’s a form of collaboration between the Dutch Tax Administration and tax consultants and entails the Tax Administration and the professional body we belong to (Register Belastingadviseurs) monitoring our business processes. The result? The Tax Administration can process tax returns faster because they can trust the tax returns drawn up by us. And that has benefits for our clients, because it reduces the number of administrative burdens and uncertainty. That’s why we do it!
