Last year I did not have a VAR which qualified my income towards my client. Do I still need to get one?

I have a question about the Var application form. Say if
I have applied for a VAR application form for 2012 but I have worked in the
previous month December 2011 would I also need a VAR application form for 2011
even though I have one for 2012 or can I still use the form for 2011?
is a way to show your client how the tax authorities will treat the income you
receive from the client. This gives security to your client who doesn't want to
be confronted with a wage tax claim from the tax authorities if they treat the
relation between you and your client as employment instead of freelance. If you
have a VAR showing that the income is treated as self employed income your
client doesn't have to worry that he will be confronted with a wage tax claim.
If your client doesn't want to see a VAR then that is his own decision. You are
not required by law to have a VAR, let alone for each year. So if nobody asked
you to show your VAR for December 2011 then it is not a problem that you didn't
have one. On the other hand the tax authorities will not issue a VAR
declaration for a previous year.
