Ireland-Netherlands Double Tax Treaty

Ireland-Netherlands Double Tax Treaty

The Ireland-Netherlands double tax treaty is a convention signed between the two states for purposes of tax evasion reduction, since its provisions regulate advantageous conditions of taxation for business owners in the two countries. The enterprises who conduct commercial activities in Netherlands and Ireland, receive through this treaty the guarantee that their income and profits are not overtaxed.

One of our accountants in Netherlands can explain you all the implication of this treaty for your financial situation.

The provisions of the Ireland-Netherlands double tax treaty

Investors in Netherlands who are residents in Ireland have according to the double taxation convention the possibility to be taxed for their profits either in their home country or in Netherlands. Many investors prefer one of the two options depending on the advantages provided by the governmental taxation policy of each state. 

Ireland has a special taxation policy in the sense that only the income tax and the corporation profits tax are levied from resident companies. Netherlands imposes more taxes on the Dutch companies, but some governmental incentives and the frequent modifcations which take place in the taxation policy in the Netherlands, can change this situation at any moment.

The importance of the Ireland-Netherlands double tax treaty

One of the main objectives for which Netherlands and Ireland have signed the double tax convention is the avoidance of tax evasion. Another important aspect is to support investors to incorporate companies in both countries and thus to contribute to the development of the trade relationship between Netherlands and Ireland. 

Since each country imposes its own percentage in the calculation of taxes, before the signing of the treaty, Dutch companies functioning in Ireland were under the risk of over taxation. After the introduction of the Ireland-Netherlands tax convention, investors in both states are ensured against double taxation and can conduct their commercial activity in a safe and encouraging international business climate.
