Protocol amending the Convention for the avoidance of double taxation - signed
(Warsaw) The Netherlands and Poland have signed a protocol to amend the existing bilateral treaty for the avoidance of double taxation. Among other things, both countries i.a. agreed on new provisions in the treaty against tax avoidance, as well as about the tax law on pensions and capital gains on shares in real estate entities.
Due to extraordinary circumstances a special signing procedure was followed, which was jointly agreed upon by both sides to minimalise COVID19-related risks. This is why Ambassador Daphne Bergsma and Polish Deputy Minister of Finance Jan Sarnowski signed the treaty protocol separately.
