No (monthly) bill with insurance
June 23, 2020
It is common for us to receive requests from corporate clients to send monthly invoices regarding the premium collected on a policy.
When you purchase insurance, you can determine the insurance payment period. This can be per month, quarter, six months or per year. When you choose a monthly payment, for example, you basically divide the annual amount into 12 equal installments. As a result, you pay the same amount with each collection and insurers do not issue an invoice with each collection. They like to refer you to the premium amount listed on the policy schedule. This premium amount is leading.

Set off VAT on insurance
In general, you can only offset VAT on business expenses for which you receive a proper invoice. In the Netherlands, you do not pay VAT on insurance. Therefore it is also not possible to offset the VAT. You do pay 21% insurance tax on insurance premiums. This percentage corresponds to the high VAT rate, which is also 21%. For this reason, many people mistakenly think that VAT is paid on insurance.
