The 2021 Tax Plan package contains additional measures to stimulate economic growth during the corona crisis and measures for a better, fairer and greener tax system. Many of the proposed measures will take effect on January 1, 2021. Various tax measures related to the corona crisis that were elaborated on in a policy statement granting approvals have now been embedded in law. This memorandum outlines the main features of the 2021 Tax Plan package. Where possible and relevant, we have included in the individual topics other tax measures and developments related to those topics, but have indicated that these are not part of the 2021 Tax Plan package. Please refer to the last section for other tax developments.
A more detailed memorandum about specific corporate income tax issues will follow shortly.
