Overview: The Dutch Government announced a range of tax relief measures for businesses, including delaying income tax, corporate tax, sales tax or wage tax payments for three months or more.

The Government has also temporarily lowered the interest on tax debts (often imposed on businesses for not paying the correct tax or not paying tax on time) from 4 percent to 0.01 percent.

Businesses can also request a cut to their provisional tax (tax based on preliminary assessments of their income tax or corporate tax), meaning they can pay less tax.

These measures have been extended until 28 April 2020.
