Tips for filling in the tax registration form:

Prepare your tax ID. You can find it, for example, on your tax assessment notice or, if you were once employed, on your pay slip.

You also need the bank details of your bank account and your private bank account.

Give the tax office a direct debit mandate. This way you won't miss any payments and you'll save on possible reminder fees.
