According to the 2005 Dutch spelling the English VAT has only one correct Dutch counterpart: btw (no capitals, no abbreviation dots). The article btw should not redirect to BTW, at least not for Dutch. Moreover in Dutch the correct full form is belasting over de toegevoegde waarde.

I moved the Dutch section to "btw" as you suggested. Does that look right to you now? Rod (A. Smith) 08:02, 21 June 2006 (UTC)


It would be good with an example of usage of "BTW". —This unsigned comment was added by Mortense (talkcontribs) 00:01, 11 December 2009‎ (UTC).

E.g. could it be(?): BTW: it is raining. —This unsigned comment was added by Mortense (talkcontribs) 00:04, 11 December 2009‎ (UTC).


It seems that /dʌblːjuː/ can be shortened to /dʌbz/ when speaking. (I see that w#Pronunciation already lists /ˈdʌbz/ as a pronunciation).—suzukaze (tc) 09:36, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
