CBS-DNB Finances of Enterprises and Balance of Payments

DNB and Statistics Netherlands (CBS) ask businesses to submit financial data to get a clear picture of the Dutch economy. Currently, we use various surveys to collect the data, such as CBS's quarterly and annual survey among financial institutions and DNB's monthly Balance of payments reports.
If you (as a company or group of companies) currently have to submit one or more of these reports, a new combined quarterly questionnaire will apply to you effective from 2019: the CBS-DNB Questionnaire on Finances of Enterprises and Balance of Payments. View the introductory video alongside.

Getting familiar with the new quarterly questionnaire

The new, combined CBS and DNB questionnaire will affect your future reporting. While submission of the new questionnaire will only become obligatory effective from the first quarter of 2019, we want to inform you about the upcoming changes well in advance. This will allow you to take the necessary preparations.

Go to https://antwoord.cbs.nl and use the login details you received by letter to explore the new questionnaire. This will enable you to see which data you will be asked to fill in. You can also submit test reports to CBS.
If you no longer have the login details, please request new codes here.
