  • -          the income tax;
  • -          the salary tax;

Like all other Dutch double taxation treaties, the one with Denmark covers both natural persons and companies resident in on e or both countries. The Netherlands – Denmark double tax convention also provides for the status of permanent establishments, such as branch offices, factories or workshops.

Avoidance of double taxation in the Netherlands and Denmark

In the case of Denmark, the avoidance of double taxation will occur through a tax credit granted to the individual or company undertaking activities in accordance with the provisions of the agreement. The Netherlands, on the other hand, applies a combination between the credit and the tax exemption methods.

Both countries have also agreed upon the following reduced tax rates:

  • -          a 0% tax rate on dividend payments for companies which hold at least 10% of the voting shares in the company paying the dividends and a 15% in all other cases;
  • -          a 0% tax rate on interest payments;
  • -          a 0% tax rate on royalties payments.
