Starting your Netherlands company is now even more interesting than before. This is because the Government have planned some new rules for the corporation VAT. In the year 2018, the VAT will drop from 20% to 16% for the first TAX bracket. This means that the corporation, have to pay 4% less for the first 200.000 euro profit. Beside this benefit, the second TAX bracket (200.000+ euro) will also drop from 25% to 21%. This process will gradually happen between 2018 and 2021.
