On 20 September 2016, as part of the 2017 budget, Dutch government released various tax bills and announced various other tax proposals. The government strongly confirms its continued commitment to maintain the attractive features of the Dutch investment climate, for instance by reducing the corporate tax rate to a competitive level in the future, while proactively addressing tax avoidance. The proposals include the following key changes:
aligning the Dutch ‘innovation box’ regime, which grants a 5% effective corporate tax rate, with international standards while preserving benefits for the majority of taxpayers;
amending specific interest deduction limitations to address certain artificial structures;
suggesting broader dividend tax exemptions for all types of companies, but imposing a withholding liability on Dutch cooperatives.
