Inkeerregeling vergroot belastingopbrengst, ook op langere termijn

Pressrelease (in Dutch only)

Volgens internationale schattingen hebben Nederlandse huishoudens voor ruim 60 miljard euro uitstaan in belastingparadijzen. Met de inkeerregeling is tussen 2002 en 2018 voor ongeveer 12 miljard euro verborgen vermogen alsnog aangegeven bij de Belastingdienst. Dat heeft 2,1 miljard euro aan belastingen opgeleverd en leidt ook op langere termijn tot hogere belastinginkomsten. De lage boetes voor vrijwillige inkeer en internationale uitwisseling van informatie lijken de vrijwillige inkeer te hebben gestimuleerd. Dat blijkt uit onderzoek naar belastingontduiking dat het Centraal Planbureau op 17 november heeft gepubliceerd.

Offshore Tax Evasion and Wealth Inequality: Evidence from a Tax Amnesty in the Netherlands

Publication

As long as there have been taxes, people have tried to avoid and evade them. Interest in these phenomena has been fueled by the effects on public revenues, as well as on the distribution of wealth and income. One prominent example of tax evasion is the hiding of wealth and income in tax havens. According to estimates by Zucman (2013), 8% of global financial wealth, or $5.9 trillion, is held in tax havens. During the global financial crisis of the late 2000s, the G20 countries vowed to tackle offshore tax evasion and proclaimed the end of the “era of banking secrecy”. In recent years, leaks containing confidential information from financial institutions as well as academic research investigating leaks and tax amnesties have confirmed the popular narrative that tax evasion is concentrated among the wealthiest in society (Alstadsæter, Johannesen and Zucman, 2018, 2019). This does not only affect public revenues, but also the measurement of wealth and income inequality.

Nederlandse transportsector en industrie kwetsbaar voor nieuwe coronagolf buitenland

Pressrelease (in Dutch only)

Een wereldwijde opleving van het coronavirus en mogelijke bijbehorende buitenlandse lockdownmaatregelen zullen Nederlandse bedrijven in de transportsector en de industrie hard raken. Dat blijkt uit onderzoek van het Centraal Planbureau en het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek. De omzet in deze sectoren is sterk afhankelijk van de wereldwijde exportvraag. In tegenstelling tot de Nederlandse dienstensector die vooral wordt getroffen door de binnenlandse maatregelen, worden transportbedrijven en de industrie juist geraakt door maatregelen in andere landen en terugval in de wereldhandel. Nieuwe lockdowns in het buitenland hebben daarom grote economische gevolgen voor deze sectoren.

Dutch tax treaties and developing countries - a network analysis -

Publication

CPB analyses six tax treaties of the Netherlands with developing countries. These treaties are part of a tax network of more than 100 countries. CPB determines the tax burden on dividend, interest and royalty flows over the network and computes the impact of diversion of these flows for withholding tax revenues. This analysis is at the request of the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department (IOB) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
