Brussels backs Dutch intra-group loans plan

The European commission has given its approval to a Dutch plan to cut taxes on revenue from intra-group loans, saying it does not amount to illegal state aid.

The aim of the scheme will limit the excessive tax breaks on interest earned by multinationals and private equity firms operating in the Netherlands.
In February 2007, the Commission opened an in-depth investigation because it had feared the measure would confer a selective advantage to some companies.
