participation exemption

participation exemption
The Dutch participation exemption, as an example, provides for a full exemption from Dutch corporate income tax in respect of income and capital gains derived from a qualifying shareholding (and, subject to a number of conditions, a qualifying hybrid debt instrument). A qualifying shareholding is generally present if a Dutch company owns at least 5% of the share capital of another company. The participation exemption generally does not apply if a shareholding is held as "inventory" or as a "passive portfolio investment" (a shareholding in a group finance company, can, in certain circumstances, be treated as a passive portfolio investment), or in the event that the (foreign) investee company is not subject to an income tax in its country of residence.
