Meeting on private financing of light rail in the Netherlands

29.03.2018 NL law

Light rail is an important solution for traffic congestion in the Randstad. On Thursday 29 March, Stibbe will host the "Private Financing of Light Rail in the Netherlands" meeting in cooperation with the International Project Finance Association (IPFA).

Experts, managers and politicians agree: public transport in the Randstad must be expanded to prevent further traffic congestion. Light rail seems to be an ideal solution. However, as no public funding will be available in the near future, private financing will play an important role in funding light rail projects. During the meeting, Stibbe, IPFA and the other attendees will discuss the future and funding of light rail in the Netherlands. keynote speakers include Jaap Bierman (HTM), Carolien Gehrels (Arcadis), David Orobio de Castro (Stibbe), Gideo Tilburgs (Laing) and Pieter Meulendijk (SNC Lavalin).

Date: 29 March 2018 (15.00 – 19:00 hours)
Location: Beethovenplein 10, 1077 WM Amsterdam

Perpetual securities not considered equity for Dutch corporate income tax purposes

Short Reads - In a decision of Friday 15 May 2020, the Dutch Supreme Court confirmed that fixed-to-floating rate perpetual equity securities (“perpetual securities”) should not be considered a “participation loan” (deelnemerschapslening) for Dutch tax purposes. Under Dutch tax law, characterization of a debt instrument as a “participation loan” implies that such instrument is deemed equity for Dutch corporate income tax purposes. Characterization of the perpetual securities as a participation loan would have meant that the interest would have been regarded non-deductible dividend.
