AMSTERDAM - The Netherlands is to clinch ‘a considerable number of’ deals with tax havens abroad. “Important to us is the exchange of information. The tax authorities can then see what is going on in these countries,” said Robert ten Have, head of the bilateral tax treaties department of the ministry of finance. 

Tax havens are areas where taxes are low or non-existent. In addition, scarcely any information is being provided and fiscal transparency is slight. That combination is attractive to companies and private individuals who want to avoid taxes.
