What is a corporate income tax?

On September 17, 2019, the Dutch government released a proposal containing its Tax Plan 2020 with certain amendments to Dutch Tax Law. The corporate income tax rate is currently 19% for the first € 200,000 of profit and 25% for profit exceeding this amount. As per January 1, 2020, there would be a reduction of the rates for 2020 to 16,5% for the first €200,000.

“Quick fixes” will be implemented in national laws in all member states, part of the “Action Plan on VAT – towards a single EU VAT area” regulation, in order to make it simpler and to combat frauds. Changes include a simplified treatment for call-off stock, uniform rules to simplify chain transactions, mandatory VAT identification numbers to apply the zero VAT rate and simplified proof of intra-Community supplies. Moreover, the low VAT rate, which is 9%, will be also adopted in Dutch Law for the delivery of books, newspapers and magazines supplies by electronic means.
