Accounting Rules

Tax Year
The tax year generally corresponds to the calendar year, although a deviating year may be used if so provided in the company's articles of association. The tax year usually is 12 months, but shorter or longer periods are permitted in the year of incorporation/liquidation.
Accounting Standards
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the EU apply to all domestic and foreign public companies. Small entities must choose between Book 2 of the Dutch Civil Code combined with fiscal valuations, Dutch Accounting Standards for small entities, Dutch Accounting Standards for medium sized and large entities and IFRS Standards as adopted by the EU combined with a part of the Dutch Accounting Standards for medium-sized and large entities. Medium sized entities must choose between Dutch Accounting Standards for medium-sized and large entities and IFRS Standards as adopted by the EU combined with a part of the Dutch Accounting Standards for medium sized and large legal entities.
