The Netherlands is an important link in the chain of diverting income flows: broader use of withholding taxes is necessary to combat international tax avoidance

Pressrelease

Sixty percent of the royalties that flow via the Netherlands go directly to tax haven Bermuda. Outgoing interest flows are diverted less often to tax havens: around 20 percent. In addition, some 25% of the outgoing interest flows to other conduit countries, such as Ireland, Luxemburg and Switzerland. In addition, a large share of dividends comes from these countries. The conditional withholding tax, planned for 2021, does not stop the financial flows from and to other conduit countries. The reason for this is that the conditional withholding tax only applies to countries with a statutory rate of the corporate income tax of 9 percent or less. That does not include Ireland, Luxemburg and Switzerland.

Estimating migration changes from the EU’s free movement of people principle

Publication

We estimate the impact of the free movement of people (FMP) principle on bilateral intra-EU migration stocks using a gravity model. Employing a combination of the World Bank and the UN’s global migration databases, with observations between 1960 and 2015, allows us to analyse the impact of the FMP for most EU member states.
