amsterdam - Supervision of the trust sector would be easier if Dutch tax laws were clearer. That said Willemieke van Gorkum, Director of Integrity at DNB, Thursday during the parliamentary interrogation committee on tax structures.
DNB has recently been monitoring its aggressive tax planning. According to Van Gorkum, DNB does not use its own definition of what aggressive tax planning is then.
'We can pursue a discussion, but we are not fiscalists. So we can not make a custom judgment about what may or may not, 'said Van Gorkum.
But the problem is that many taxists have grown up with the idea that everything is allowed by law. '
According to Van Gorkum, it would be easier for DNB if the legislator makes clearer tax laws and regulations 'or giving a number of guidelines'.
She thinks of a number of assumptions, such as the fact that there must always be a tax at the place where there is also a deduction point and that the tax must also take place where there are also economic activities.
The DNB Annual Report states that financial institutions will no longer have to initiate- and existing existing- activities that can lead to loss of trust in the field of aggressive tax planning.
