By February 1, companies must decide whether they want to make a voluntary payment of expected residual tax for the 2022 income year

Save the interest (which is not tax deductible). For payment no later than February 1, 2023, the interest surcharge is 0.9%.

If the company chooses not to make a voluntary payment, a residual tax for the income year 2022 must be paid no later than November 20, 2023. A residual tax surcharge of 4.4% is added to this amount.

Therefore, there is a big financial difference between paying the residual tax on February 1, 2023 or only paying it when the Tax Agency issues the annual statement with a payment deadline of November 20, 2023.
