Dear members of Dujat,

We are pleased to invite you to our DUJAT / Loyens & Loeff tax seminar on 13 September 2018 at the Amsterdam office of Loyens & Loeff.

The tax environment for businesses is changing rapidly. Stricter rules and changes to long existing taxation concepts are rolled out all over the world. There is much more focus on people’s functions.

In this seminar we will discuss the impact of these changes on Japanese companies doing business in the Netherlands. For example, what will be the effect of the new Japanese CFC rules on Dutch financial and holding companies, what will be the effect of the implementation of the Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD) on Dutch subsidiaries of Japanese groups and what influence will the General Anti Avoidance Rule (GAAR) in the EU Parent-Subsidiary Directive and the Principal Purpose Test of the Multilateral Instrument (MLI) have on the staffing and activities of a Dutch company owning subsidiaries outside the Netherlands?
