Every employer has the annual obligation to submit the so-called Annual Documents of last year to the various authorities before a certain date. At least the Summary Wage Sheet (in Dutch: Verzamelloonstaat) must be submitted to the Tax Authorities in every country. In this blog a handy overview of the deadlines for submitting annual documents.

In addition to the Tax Authorities, Aruba has two more obligations to annually submit an Employee Statement to the Directorate Labor & Research (DAO) and an Employee Statement to SVB.

Curaçao also has the obligation to submit an Employee Statement to the Ministry of Social Development, Labor and Welfare (SOAW). Although in the past few years this obligation has already expired, and it is not clear now whether the obligation still applies.

The external submission dates for the Jaarwerk 2019 are as follows:

  • Aruba: January 31, 2020 (is likely to be postponed as in previous years)
  • BES: January 31, 2020
  • Curaçao: January 31, 2020 (is likely to be postponed as in previous years)
  • Suriname: January 31, 2020
  • St. Maarten: January 31, 2020

In Celery you can find these annual hard-copy PDF documents in the folder Documents/Annual. However, you can also generate these documents yourself in Reports/Annual reports.

The digital Summary Wage Sheet for filing with the Tax Authorities in BES, Curaçao and St. Maarten payrolls is since 2019 included in the annual documents in the Annual folder in Documents.

Report number 13 concerns the Summary Wage Sheet for Tax Authorities, and in this report under ‘Export’ you will find the option to generate the digital Summary Wage Sheet. If you have generated this digital Summary Wage Sheet, do not edit and/or open this file before submitting it to the Tax Authorities because it will be unreadable.

Here you can read more about the option to create the digital Summary Wage Sheet.
