Belgium’s treaties (such as withholding tax rates) are consistent with international conventions and in line with those in many other tax treaties. In the past, Belgium has used various targeted tax incentives to attract foreign direct investment from MNCs, such as the regime for coordination centers before 2006, the NID after 2006 (see below), the innovation box, and specific rulings such as an excess profit tax ruling. This strategy has been relatively successful in the past. For instance, the inbound stock of FDI is approximately 100 percent of GDP in 2015 (per the

the extent that the foreign tax is less than the domestic tax. The size of the benefit depends on the difference between the foreign and domestic tax rates, the length of the period of deferral, and the prevailing interest rates ( Arnold (1986) ). The policy objectives behind the introduction of the CFC rules differ among the states that have enacted such legislation. However, fundamentally, the CFC legislation is typically seen as an instrument to guard against the unjustifiable erosion of the domestic tax base by the export of investments to non

of an additional 100% for R&D expenditure. The proposal addresses also the problem of debt receiving a more favourable tax treatment than direct capital investment. This proposal concerns the corporate tax base and it is not meant to harmonise the various national corporate tax rates. One possible and a very major tax reform change regarding company taxation could at least in principle be a total focus shift from the company (firm) level tax to the owner-investor level tax (Example: the Estonian tax system). This may not be the most realistic way. If the company

in practice is much easier for non-listed than listed companies. Furthermore, the taxation may vary within one asset class depending on the form of investment or financial instrument used. For example, one may invest in equities by making direct equity investments or then by using funds or different kind of life and pension insurance products. The tax treatment of these different investment instruments is not consistent; the effective tax burden can vary a lot between the different investment forms and cases. Above all, this is due to the fact that by using

dividends, which was passed in 1998. Cf. SEL2(1)(c) (Den.), as amended by the adoption of Law no. 1026 of December 23,1998. The amendment entailed that dividends distributed to foreign parent companies were not subject to limited Danish tax liability, regardless of where the parent company was resident. The amendment was partly caused by administrative difficulties with handling the rules valid at the time and partly caused by a desire to become a more attractive country for foreign investment. The latter actually seemed to become true, as foreign groups and investors

.7 Notes : All calculations are based on the actual asset composition in manufacturing. The following inflation rates were used: 7 percent for 1970 and 9.4 percent for 1980. The calculations conform to the general framework developed by King and Fullerton (1984) . The average holding period is assumed to be 10 years. A negative tax rate implies that the rate of return after tax is greater than before tax. For instance, a tax rate of -83 percent for a debt-financed investment owned by a tax-exempt institution in 1980 implies that a real rate of return of 10 percent

it remains in place as a symbol of the legislator’s insistence that high earners pay their fair share of taxes ( Öberg 2014 ), allowing policy makers to demonstrate their commitment to fairness. Moreover, only a minor proportion of tax policy concerns consumption, although this proportion is likely to expand as the public grows increasingly concerned about environmental issues. Tax policy in the realm of business primarily addresses investments and savings ( Avi-Yonah 2006 ). Regulation aimed at stimulating activity in this area must be directed at individuals
