Understanding your monthly or quarterly bill

The content of your monthly or quarterly bill depends on whether you have a water meter or not.

If your home has a water meter

Does your home have a water meter? Then 5 amounts are stated on your bill:

  1. Vastrecht (Standing charge): You pay a fixed amount annually to help maintain the water pipes. You pay a portion of this amount each month or every three months.
  2. Waterverbruik (Water consumption). This amount depends on the amount of water you use.
  3. Belasting op leidingwater (Tap water tax): This tax  is charged per m³ of your water consumption. More about tap water tax.
  4. Btw (VAT): 9% tax is levied over the standing charge, your water consumption and the tap water tax.
  5. Kosten voor rekening per post (Additional charges for paper bills): You pay an additional charge of 1,50 euro for every bill we send you by mail. Bills sent by email are free of charge.
