Executive Summary: The Dutch have a long history of openness to trade and business. Although there is a sophisticated tax system with high marginal tax rates some aspects of the system are extremely attractive, making the Netherlands an ideal location in which to base international trading operations. There is an extensive network of double taxation treaties (few of which contain any anti avoidance provisions) and a speedy, effective advance tax rulings procedure. Recent developments include a series of tax incentives aimed at entrepreneurs, including availability of an ‘innovation box’ to shelter R&D investment, and improved loss offsets. Almost all Dutch people speak good English, and professional services, while not cheap, are very efficient.
