Dutch BV Tax Structure

In today’s international fiscal environment, the Dutch holding (BV) company regime is still the most preferred holding regime in the world – mainly because of its tax efficiency (mostly 0% tax).  Other factors that add to its popularity are the flexibility of Dutch corporate, tax law and the lower cost of incorporation and maintenance.

The favorable tax regime of a Dutch BV company for holding activities and the easy-to-follow legal and financial infrastructure attract a vast number of foreign investors in the Netherlands. The Dutch BV taxation structure offers a tremendous reduction of the tax at source. Additionally, the Dutch holding company may create a strictly legal possibility to defer taxation in your home country. We have advised a wide range of clients on the Dutch BV tax structure and have helped to set up and manage their tax compliance every year.
