The Netherlands has since long been a jurisdiction of choice for the establishment of international holding companies. Generally recognised benefits of using a Dutch (holding) company include an attractive participation exemption regime, extensive investment protection and tax treaty networks, no withholding taxes on interest and royalties and the cooperative 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, head of tax Michael Molenaars and counsel Reinout de Boer have been asked to contribute to The Inward Investment and International Taxation Review, a book recently published by Law Business Research.

Fiscale maatregelen tegen klimaatverandering

Articles - De wereldwijde toegenomen CO2-uitstoot baart veel mensen zorgen, gezien de hoeveelheid (media)aandacht die de klimaatverandering tegenwoordig krijgt.

Staatsfondsen uit de Golfregio gehinderd in een snel veranderende fiscale wereld

Articles - Emile Bongers schreef een artikel waarin hij een aantal fiscale aspecten beschrijft waar staatsfondsen in de praktijk tegenaan lopen bij transacties en investeringen in Nederland. In zijn artikel beperkt hij zich tot staatsfondsen gevestigd in de Golfregio, namelijk Bahrein, Koeweit, Oman, Qatar, Saoedi-Arabië en de Verenigde Arabische Emiraten (de VAE).
