During the seminar specific topics will be addressed such as post COVID M&A negotiation, latest EU tax developments, best practices by Japanese companies for successful investments into the Netherlands and the latest developments in choosing your European hub/holdco jurisdiction (e.g. substance, tax treaties, tax incentives).
