What is the corporate income tax rate in the Netherlands?

Good news for entrepreneurs: the Dutch government wants to stimulate entrepreneurship, so they are lowering the corporate income tax rate in the following years. This corporation tax rate depends on the taxable amount, which is the taxable profit in one year less the deductible losses.

In the video below, you will find a brief explanation about the present Dutch income tax rates, and the development of the rates in the upcoming years.
