[2019-09-09] Tax Seminar with Houthoff


On Monday 9 September 2019 Houthoff and Dujat organized a tax seminar to inform members and relations about the latest tax developments, JCFC, and more.

We hope the attendees of this seminar gained some insight into the complicated topic, and we would like to extend our thanks to the host of this seminar, Houthoff, and to the speakers Kentaro Tanaka (TMI associates, secondee at Houthoff), Paul Schouten (Tax Lawyer, Houthoff), Hiroyuki Muromachi (Managing Director, Nomura Financial Products Europe GmbH, Dutch Branch) for their informative presentations, and to Hans Kuijpers (Director, NFIA) for leading the Q&A.

The world of taxation has been subject to significant changes in the past years. Taxation has become a political, boardroom and sometimes a headline issue. Almost all countries are taking measures to combat tax avoidance and profit shifting while increasing transparency.

In 2018, the Japanese controlled foreign company (JCFC) rules were fundamentally revised. In addition, various tax rules in the Netherlands were changed, amongst others, as a result of the base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) project by the OECD. Additional Dutch tax changes are also expected for 2019/2020.

Houthoff and Dujat are delighted to invite you to the tax seminar on
Monday 9 September 2019.

In this tax seminar, we will elaborate on the above-mentioned tax developments. We will assess how these developments intertwine and impact Japanese companies doing business in the Netherlands. We will also share best practices for Japanese companies.
