Abstract: For centuries, the Netherlands has encouraged entrepreneurial spirit, an international perspective and open market policies. These historical factors, along with the country’s secure political and economic climate, make it a near perfect environment for international tax planning. This environment is further enhanced by the Netherlands’ network of tax agreements with virtually every significant financial territory in the world, as well as the benefits that can be gained from basing intermediate holding companies within the Netherlands Antilles.
