When does an M-bill apply?
If you emigrate or immigrate, you simply have to file an income tax return in the Netherlands. Both for the 'domestic' and 'foreign' months. The tax authorities combine these declarations and ask all the questions you may have. That is why the M form is so extensive and complex.
Usually you receive the M-form automatically, sometimes you don't.
As soon as you register or deregister in the Key Register of Persons (BRP), the Tax and Customs Administration is notified. In principle, you will therefore receive the tax return form automatically. This sometimes goes wrong. In that case, you have to request the form yourself.
Only intermediaries can handle the tax return and the M-bill digitally
You can only fill in the form physically (with a pen) and send it by post. This means you have no insight into the outcome. Do you want certainty? We have specific declaration software. We use it to look at various scenarios for you and show you the result.
6 reasons why doing it yourself is risky
1. Domestic and foreign taxpayer
For the months you live in the Netherlands, you are subject to domestic tax. And for the months abroad, you are subject to foreign tax.
2. The conservatory tax
In order to prevent tax evasion, the tax authorities impose a conservatory tax for example:
Most errors occur when reporting the value for this tax. There are also quite a few rules and exceptions. Make sure you are well informed about this.
3. Errors and delays in postal delivery
It often takes a long time before the M-form arrives by post. It also gets lost regularly. In that case the tax return form has to be sent again.
4. Remains connected to the Netherlands after emigration
Are you moving abroad, but your partner or family is staying in the Netherlands? It is possible that an M form is not applicable to you because, in exceptional situations, you remain fully liable to pay national tax.
5. Own company
If you have a business, get good advice before you leave.
6. Social insurance
Many emigrants forget that they pay premiums for the Dutch national insurance until the date of departure. If you work as an employee, your employer will deduct the contribution from your salary. The Tax Administration will then offset this against your income tax return.
