The Netherlands Ups Tax Treaty Negotiations In 2012

by Ulrika Lomas,, Brussels

21 February 2012

Underlining the government’s commitment to negotiating new tax treaties with other countries, the Dutch finance ministry has recently outlined details of its specific plans for 2012.

According to the finance ministry, in 2012, the Netherlands aims to continue talks on agreements with Australia, China, Colombia, Germany, Ethiopia, Ireland, India, New Zealand, Norway and the Czech Republic. In addition, discussions will be initiated with Belgium, France, Iraq and Mongolia.

In its release, the ministry explains that the aim of the negotiations is to conclude a new or amended tax treaty to ensure on the one hand that businesses and individuals are not subject to double taxation, and on the other to ensure that no tax is avoided.

Furthermore, in addition to the negotiations with the aforementioned jurisdictions, the ministry notes the government’s intention to continue talks on amending existing treaty provisions with St Maarten, Curacao, and Aruba, and to resume contact in the foreseeable future with Angola, Brazil, Chile, Cyprus, Poland, Spain and Turkey, which could lead to the start or continuation of negotiations on a tax treaty or on protocol changes.
