If you do business in the Netherlands and abroad, in principle you will be liable for profit and corporate tax in all countries where you operate. Each country has its own laws and regulations, which means that you will need to set up a sound tax structure in each country, whereby each country is allocated its 'fair share' of the company's results. The tax consultants of RSM can assist you in all these countries, thanks to our global network.

Paying tax on international profits from the Netherlands

Our services stand out because of our personal attention and working with a permanent team of consultants. This applies not only to our relationship with the companies we advise and assist, but also to the international collaboration with our colleagues. We know each other, talk to each other on a regular basis and the lines of communication are short. As a result, you quickly know where you stand, knowing that your business is in safe hands, both in the Netherlands and abroad. Your permanent consultant is responsible for the final audit and ensures that you are compliant in all countries.

Foreign parent companies in the Netherlands

Companies with a parent company abroad and a Dutch operation also pay corporate tax on the Dutch part of the operating result. The RSM tax consultants are ready to support your business unit with the preparation of the financial statements and corporate tax. We also liaise effortlessly with the head office, both directly and via our international colleagues on site.

Our transfer pricing experts have many years of experience in assisting multinational companies with their transfer pricing issues. Besides the fact that transfer pricing is obligatory in many countries, transfer pricing techniques can also be used to reduce the effective tax burden. These techniques include business chain optimisation.  As, without exception, transfer pricing is a transnational issue, we are members of a worldwide network of transfer pricing specialists.

Our advice and support are focused on:

  • Reducing the tax burden through business chain optimisation.
  • Providing advice in the area of restructurings, acquisitions and reorganisations.
  • Reviewing and preparing transfer pricing documentation.
  • Updating and establishing external benchmarks for regular business transactions, as well as pricing intangible assets and financial transactions.
  • Consultation and discussions with local tax authorities during tax audits.
  • Obtaining advance rulings with local tax authorities.
  • Reviewing and drawing up contracts.
  • Assisting with the implementation of transfer pricing in the administrative organisation.

If you would like more information contact your RSM advisor. 

When it comes to doing business internationally, each country should receive its fair share of profits and corporate tax. This distribution is laid down in transfer pricing documentation. This is an internationally accepted format, which allows the Customs and Tax Administration in each country to request a clear overview of what the distribution means for their country.

Our tax consultants draw up the transfer pricing documentation for you and ensure that it is implemented correctly in each country. You work with your permanent consultants and we liaise with our colleagues.
