Dutch VAT invoice requirements
Dutch VAT rules on the format and information to be provided on invoices broadly conform with the obligations of the EU VAT Directive and its VAT invoice requirements.
Date of issuance and storage of Dutch invoices
Dutch VAT invoices must be issued before the sixteenth day of the month after the month in which the taxable supply took place. Invoices must be stored for seven years. Netherlands, like all EU member states, now permits the use of electronic invoices under certain conditions.
