MOSCOW, February 24 – RIA Novosti. Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, speaking about the process of adjusting agreements on the avoidance of double taxation with a number of countries, noted that “the Netherlands are still resisting.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin in March 2020 ordered a tax of 15% on income in the form of dividends and interest transferred to accounts abroad. This requires adjusting agreements with other countries to avoid double taxation. The President warned that the Russian Federation would unilaterally withdraw from such agreements with countries that would not accept its proposals.
“I would like to tell you that we did not sit idly by even in a pandemic. The President supported all of our work with you at 15% – that's all, we have now closed five main zones, we are carefully looking at where the capital goes. Cyprus is closed for today, Malta The Netherlands are still resisting, “Mishustin said at a meeting with the leadership of the Federation Council.
“I will say that our position is very tough, right up to denunciation. We are tough on this and, believe me, we will put things in order in this on the sly,” the prime minister assured.
