How many tax treaties does the Netherlands have?
What is a tax treaty?
In a tax treaty countries agree on which country is allowed to levy taxation on a specific item of income. Through the use of tax treaties countries try to avoid double taxation.
The Netherlands also agreed upon limitations on benefits provisions in their tax treaties. Limitations on benefits provisions generally prohibit third country residents from obtaining treaty benefits. For example, a foreign corporation may not be entitled to a reduced rate of withholding unless a minimum percentage of its owners are citizens or residents of the Netherlands (or the treaty country).
