Adjusted Tax Package 2019 - Highlights

Global Tax Update:November 2018/Netherlands

On 19 September 2018 we informed you by Tax Alert about the Tax Package 2019 issued by the Dutch government. As of 15 October 2018, the Dutch government adjusted the Tax Package 2019 due to strong opposition within Parliament.

The controversial abolishment of the Dutch Dividend Withholding Tax will be withdrawn; i.e. the Dutch Dividend Withholding Tax will remain in place. The extra annual tax revenues of approximately EUR 2bn will be reinvested in the Dutch economy to strengthen the attractiveness of the Netherlands as a country of investment.
