The Netherlands is widely regarded as an attractive and sophisticated location for international business. Also in the changing international tax climate, the Dutch tax system is considered to be favourable for international transactions, due to the extensive tax treaty network, the generous participation exemption in corporate tax law, the absence of withholding taxes on royalties and interest payments, and the approach of the Dutch tax authorities.
The Stibbe Tax team has considerable knowledge of and experience in domestic and international matters such as mergers and acquisitions, private equity, finance structures, capital markets, securitisations, EU law and tax treaties, public private partnerships, project finance, restructurings and real estate.
Based on this extensive expertise, tax partners Michael Molenaars and Jeroen Smits and counsel Reinout de Boer have been asked to contribute to Chambers Global Practice Guides: Corporate Tax 2016 on Trends & Developments in the Netherlands.
