Did you know that the Netherlands can be a fiscal paradise for foreign wealthy individuals moving to the Netherlands? For wealthy individuals moving to the Netherlands who generally speaking have not been a resident of (or close to) the Netherlands for more than 8 years in the last 25 years the 30% Dutch tax facility may be (made) applicable.
The benefits of the Dutch facility – which has a maximum duration of 8 years – are substantial, for instance:
- the individual does not need report any investment income at all (except for Dutch source income, such as Dutch real estate);
- the individual does not need to report income form a foreign substantial interest (dividends and capital gains from closely held companies).
The Dutch facility takes considerable Dutch tax planning and setting up a Dutch company but it can certainly be done.
