The Netherlands Maritime Tax Regime

The international shipping industry is crucial to the global economy as it carries over 90% of global trade. As the shipping industry is very capital-intensive, the Netherlands supports this industry by providing favourable tax facilities for shipping industry. Dutch, and especially Rotterdam tax advisors have a great deal of experience in international tax planning.

Therefore, the Dutch favourable tonnage tax regime is another important reason why shipping companies have a presence in the Netherlands. To keep supporting the shipping industry the Netherlands intends to exempt certain income from international shipping and ancillary activities.
