For all administrations in a domain submitting the VAT returns by the administrative office or the accountant with or without prior approval of the VAT returns by the entrepeneur (customer) can be set.


This setting can only be confgured by a user with the 'Back office' role in the domain or the 'Management' role.


When approval of the VAT return by the entrepeneur (customer) is set then the VAT return that is checked by the administrative office or the accountant has to be approved before the end of the month after the VAT accounting period so the VAT return and the payment will be received by the tax authorities on time. 


All configured settings such as the settings of the tax authorities, among others, are grouped and categorised in one place in your domain.


Open the settings of your domain by clicking the Settings icon on the navigation bar and then click Tax authorities in the screen now opened.


The following screen is opened:



Click the Edit button and select the option that you want to set for the approval of the VAT returns in this domain before they are sent to the tax authorities:

  • Portal settings: the settings of the VAT return approval are the same as the ones in the portal.
  • On: the VAT return has to be approved by the entrepeneur (customer) before it can be sent to the tax authorities by the administrative office or the accountant.
  • Off: the VAT return can be sent to the tax authorities by the administrative office or the accountant without the approval of the entrepeneur (customer).
