The Netherlands: 9th best tax competitive country

13 February, 2020

According to the International Tax Competitiveness Index (ITCI), The Netherlands is the 9th best tax competitive country. This is the result of the research of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for the year 2019 including all countries that are part of the OECD. To compare us to our neighbors: Germany was ranked at 16th place and Belgium at 27th place.

Research perspective

The ITCI measures and compares how well countries promote sustainable economic growth and investment. This overall rating is determined based on the two factors competitiveness and neutrality. A competitive tax system is a system that keeps marginal tax rates low. A neutral tax system is one that seeks the most revenue with the fewest economic distortions. Based on the research of the OECD in this respect, the ranking of the Netherlands with regard to corporate taxes is the 19th place, individual taxes is the 21st place, and both consumption taxes and property taxes is the 12th place.
