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

For assessment year 2021 (income year 2020), the base rate is 3% for companies and, therefore, the surcharge is 6.75% (3% x 2.25).

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, a basic interest rate of 2.25% applies. Only 90% of the surcharge is taken account of last year.

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:

The government has reached an agreement regarding advance payment of taxes by the self-employed and companies. Businesses will be given short-term financial breathing space required to deal with the coronavirus crisis by making tax pre-payments made in the third and fourth quarters more advantageous.
