The avoidance of double taxation in the Netherlands 

The Netherlands has concluded an important number of double tax avoidance agreements both with EU and non-EU countries. The purpose of these treaties is to eliminate double taxation on earnings produced in the country of origin for the foreign investor and in the country where the business is developed.
 
The tax treaties signed by the Netherlands allow for a better collaboration between the two countries and create a good and appealing commercial environment. Our law firm in the Netherlands specializes in taxation matters and can help you if you are a foreign investor in Holland who wants to benefit from the provisions of these bilateral taxation agreements.
 

Advantages for investors in the Netherlands 

 
A double tax treaty is useful for investors who produce income in more than one country. If a tax treaty is in place between their country of origin and the Netherlands, investors can avoid being taxed on income and capital in both countries.
 
The treaty will specify the manner in which each country may levy taxes. Foreign employees in the Netherlands as well as foreign investors will be affected by these treaties. Those who do not live in the Netherlands but derive income from the country can be eligible for double tax relief and can pay less income tax in the Netherlands. 
 
A double tax avoidance agreement is also beneficial for branches and subsidiaries in the Netherlands. The convention between the two countries will typically allow for a special withholding tax on dividends, royalties and interest.
