What you should know!
If you miss these deadlines, you will be charged interest from the due date. You can request an extension of the deadline from the relevant authorities. Bear in mind, however, that your request for an extension does not affect the interest due on late payments. For example, the interest rate for late payment of VAT is 4%.
Our overview should help you avoid any interest on late payments next year.
