Find out if a building permit is needed for the work
A report on construction work must be submitted for all work that requires a building permit. Work subject to action permits or demolition permits does not need to be reported. For more information on work that requires a building permit, contact your municipality.
Submit a report on construction work
Save all the contracts you sign and the invoices you pay. You will need them for submitting your report.
You can submit several reports as the work progresses and as you pay to those who work on your site.
However, as a minimum, you must submit a report on construction work before every visit of a building inspector.
When you list the invoices you have paid, do not include the VAT. However, when you list the wages you have paid, enter the gross amounts.
Note: For the move-in inspection, you need to provide information on all the invoices you have paid up until that moment. For the final inspection, you need to provide the remaining information that you did not yet submit for the move-in inspection.
If you are in the role of builder together with someone else – your spouse, for example – it is sufficient to prepare just one report.
See the guidance for MyTax: How to submit a report on construction work
You can also submit the report on a printed paper form.
If you need to make corrections, submit a replacement report. Use the identifier of your original report that needs to be corrected. Submit the corrected information and re-submit the information that was right in the first place and does not require corrections.
