Sales tax on sales invoiced by customer through self billing is still due

Unofficial translation

Arnhem-Leeuwarden Court of Appeal ruled that X does not sufficiently substantiate that the turnover invoiced by his customer through self-billing does not belong to him.

X operates a courier company. X indicates the turnover on the basis of a payment overview from customer C. In 2013, X did not include € 6,700 turnover in the declaration. X states that this concerns an advance that was invoiced by C via self-billing in 2013 and received by X, but that the advance partly relates to activities of a company that X has taken over. C provides the advance to administratively arrange matters concerning the takeover. The inspector imposes an additional assessment. X appeals.

Arnhem-Leeuwarden Court of Appeal ruled that the inspector was right to impose an additional assessment. In principle, X owes the sales tax invoiced on his behalf by means of self-billing. X fails to prove that the turnover does not belong to him. The appeal is unfounded
