The Fiscal Compromise is a legal binding agreement with the tax authorities to either end or prevent a conflict or legal uncertainty. This fiscal agreement is binding by law, even if the legal position turns out to be different, since the compromise determines the rights and obligations of both parties. Consequently, the circumstance is created, whereby the tax official is confronted with a double commitment; namely to book 7 of the Dutch Civil Code and the principle of confidence. Foreign investment in the Netherlands has gained in popularity, primarily due to the policy of the Dutch IRS to provide confidence regarding taxpayers’ legal positions prior to the execution of their endeavours. The term ‘compromise’ is misleading in this respect, as leading jurisprudence clarified that the fiscal agreement is also binding when one of the parties do not make a sacrifice.
