Double-taxation avoidance agreement, Netherlands-Seychelles – example of consideration phase

Posted in Double Taxation Agreements at 9:06 pm by Robert Klien

In May 2006, the ambassador of the Netherlands to the Seychelles, H.E. Tanya Van Gool said that the Netherlands is considering the possibility of drawing up a double-taxation avoidance agreement (DTA) with the Seychelles.

Mrs Van Gool talked about this agreement with the press after having completed her 3-year mandate. Meeting with the press was after ambassador’s farewell call on President James Michel at State House.

Mrs Van Gool obviously had mandate to provide this information representing her state. As we know, the Seychelles very actively supports concluding double taxation treaties and is very successful at this, we could expect to hear some news on this subject soon.

If completed, this would help to increase commercial investment from the Netherlands private sector into the Seychelles and probably would make the Seychelles an attractive potential investment destination for investors.
