Japan and the Netherlands ratified DTA

Tax Treaty will be effective as from 1 January 2012

The new DTA had been signed in Tokyo on 25 August 2010 and ratified December 1 by the Japanese Ambassador and Mr Weekers, the State Secretary for Finance.

The agreement makes it more attractive for Dutch companies to do business in Japan.

At the same time, it becomes more interesting for Japanese companies to invest in the Netherlands.

It strengthens even further the position of the Netherlands as the ‘gateway to Europe’ for Japanese companies.
