A Study Committee report on the revision of the Dutch tax system has been published on 7 April 2010.
In a preliminary study presented, the Committee makes a number of concrete recommendations for changes to the Dutch tax system. The proposals will see to it that the tax system is brought more in line with the Netherlands economy; this will not require a major revision of the system.
The Study Committee, consisting of external and civil experts, was commissioned by the then Minister and State Secretary of Finance to conduct an investigation into the possibilities for adjustment of the Netherlands tax system. The Committee was chaired by prof. dr. S. van Weeghel, Professor of International Tax Law at the University of Amsterdam, associated with the Amsterdam Centre for Tax Law and partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
