Small businesses with KOR2022 status should submit their declaration for 2022 by January 16, 2023

ORANJESTAD – The Tax Department reminds all small businesses with the small business arrangement (KOR) status for 2022 that the deadline to submit their BBO/BAVP y BAZV 2022 is January 16, 2023.

Failing to submit these in time or submitting these will result in the revoking of the KOR status automatically.

Declaration Obligation

Although small businesses with KOR status are not required to submit the BBO/BAVP/BAZV forms every month, they are obliged by law to submit these by the end of each fiscal year. This way, the inspector can evaluate if the yearly revenue was more or less than Afl. 84.000,00 in 2022, as this is the limit for 2022 for the KOR status. For 2023 this amount will be Afl. 50.000,- according to the new regulations recently adopted in the Tax plan 2023.

How to declare?

Please fill declarations as follow:

Exempt turnover:               Afl.           0,00 (nihil)

Taxed turnover BBO and BAVP:  Afl. 58.000,00

Taxed turnover BAZV:          Afl. 58.000,00

The automated system will calculate the tax sum.

This section s only applies to companies that have tax exemptions according to the law.
