Why are pre-payments a good idea?

The tax authorities send you a letter every year in spring to offer you the opportunity to make pre-payments. In order to encourage companies and the self-employed to pay their taxes as the tax year progresses, the legislator imposes a tax increase if insufficient pre-payments have been made.

A second advantage of pre-payments is the tax benefit or tax relief it offers for the self-employed and liberal professions. If you pay 106% of the taxes you owe in advance, the tax authorities will give you tax relief. Find out how the tax authorities calculate this tax relief.

Tax surcharges

The tax abatement and surcharge percentages for companies have greatly increased for assessment year 2019. Because of the large increase compared to last year, you again benefit more by making advance payment of your taxes. In addition, from assessment year 2019, companies must always pay the tax surcharge, even on very small amounts.

The tax surcharge is set at 2.25 times the base rate of interest rounded down to the lower unit.

For assessment year 2019 (income year 2018), the base rate is 3% for companies and, therefore, the surcharge is 6.75% (3% x 2.25). This is a trebling of what the rate was in assessment year 2018. Then, the base rate was still 1%. 

Example: a company is liable for tax of 50 000 euros but makes no pre-payments. Simple arithmetic then tells you that a hefty tax surcharge awaits you in a sum of 3 375 euros (2.25 x 3% = 6.75 % x 50 000 euros).

For unincorporated sole traders, the percentage is the same as last year (2.25%). Only 90% of the surcharge is taken account of.last year (2.25%).

Tax abatement or tax relief

If an unincorporated sole trader makes higher pre-payments than was necessary to avoid a tax surcharge, there is an entitlement to tax relief (a tax abatement). 

For tax years that are the same as calendar years, pre-payments will have the following benefits:
