For decades the Netherlands has been a key player in international tax structuring. The Netherlands is often on short lists when it comes to preferred locations to set up regional or European headquarters. The driving forces behind this are its stable corporate and tax system, its geographical location and infrastructure. According to many surveys people are convinced the Netherlands will maintain its leading role.
The tax lawyers of Atlas have a wealth of experience in designing and setting up tax efficient structures with economic substance. We follow the latest developments and understand the impact and challenges of the EU and OECD initiatives aiming to improve transparency and combat artificial structures. These developments will undoubtedly lead to a new era for multinational enterprises and their tax advisors. Atlas is ready to take its role.
Together with our clients we choose the structure that best suit their purposes. Thereby not only considering tax aspects such as treaty benefits, beneficial ownership and possible state aid consequences but also various non-tax aspects. We truly believe that, in this continuously changing world, tax advisors should carefully look at all possible aspects.
We often cooperate with our informal network of highly reputable law firms abroad and have a proven track record of designing and implementing tax efficient cross-border structures.
