Enable invoice basis on tax according to the Dutch law

Project description

Production/Stable License: AGPL-3 OCA/l10n-netherlands Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

In the Netherlands, two types of accounting systems are allowed:

  • Kasstelsel

  • Factuurstelsel

By installing this module, you have the option to adopt the Factuurstelsel system for your Company in Odoo. It means that, when validating an invoice, the system uses the invoice date instead of accounting date to determine the date of the move line for tax lines. See

Without this module installed for example, when you use an accounting date with vendor invoices, the Generic TAX reports and the Aangifte omzetbelasting show the VAT in the wrong period/date. So this module is meant to fill the gap between the standard Odoo way and the Factuurstelsel system, commonly used in the Netherlands.

The Kasstelsel system instead is provided by the standard Odoo module account_tax_cash_basis. Find more information about the kasstelsel system in:

Table of contents


Install this module if you want to enable the Factuurstelsel system for your Company.

If you want to adopt the Kasstelsel system instead, consider to install the standard Odoo module account_tax_cash_basis.


To enable the factuurstelsel, you need to:

  1. Open your Company form and set its Country to Netherlands.

  2. Go to Invoicing -> Configuration -> Settings, enable NL Tax Invoice Basis (Factuurstelsel) and Apply.

In a multi-company environment, repeat the above steps for all the companies for which you want to enable the factuurstelsel.


As an example, a use case of this module could be:

  1. Create a Vendor Bill (Purchase Invoice) and set Accounting Date in a period different than the one of the invoice date (for example, the invoice date = 14-aug and the accounting date = 14-jul).

  2. Generate your VAT statement report, it will be computed according to the factuurstelsel.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • This module extends the OCA module account_tax_balance: only the TAX reports made with modules depending on account_tax_balance will comply with Factuurstelsel. Standard Odoo TAX reports are actually not compliant with Factuurstelsel.
