Webinar. Denunciation of the agreement with the Netherlands

  • Russia



    In August 2020, the Ministry of Finance of Russia submitted a proposal to the Netherlands regarding amendments to the Agreement on the avoidance of double taxation. Regardless of the number of rounds of negotiations, all attempts at convincing the Dutch side to accept the Russian amendments to the Agreement met with failure and compromising on this issue did not fit into the Russian government’s plans.

    As a result, on 26 May 2021, the Russian president signed a bill into law denouncing the agreement on the avoidance of double taxation with the Netherlands, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia notified the Dutch side of the adoption of the relevant law with the statement dated 06/07/2021 and thereby fulfilled all procedural requirements in accordance with the rules of Article 31 of the Agreement.

    As such, one of the longest running and most popular tax agreements will cease to be valid starting from 01 January 2022.

    In the webinar, we will piece together what will follow in the wake of these events and analyze how the international structures involving the Netherlands will prepare for a new reality.
