Room for Discussion: Menno Snel – Taxes, taxes, taxes: The Netherlands a tax paradise?

Room for Discussion Menno Snel

They say two things are certain in life: death and taxes. In this session, Room for Discussion shall be discussing the latter with the Dutch secretary for finance, Menno Snel. The fiscal regime in the Netherlands has been under large scrutiny lately, with the proposal for the abolishment of the dividend tax being scrapped and debate over the leniency towards multinational companies in the Netherlands. As well as tax evasion and avoidance, the interview will look at taxes in a broader sense, exploring what role they play in society, how public attitudes towards taxation are shaped and the ideas behind a fiscal union.
