GEO Dutch Chapter Meeting

TOPIC
Lion’s den or centre of excellence? Regulatory and corporate governance updates at the Dutch Tax Authorities!
In recent years, the regulations surrounding compensation (paid both in cash and in equity) have been getting ever stricter. From a wage and income tax perspective, we have seen the reintroduction of vigorous wage tax audits, focusing on the spot-check (“steekproef”) methodology set out in the tax authorities’ new CAB guidelines. Also, under the Act on the Deregulation of Labour Relation Reviews (“Wet DBA”), the well-known Declaration of Labour Relation (“VAR”) will be replaced by model contracts. Finally, on the “comply or explain” side of the law, we have recently seen a new draft of the Dutch corporate governance code, which contains a number of interesting provisions concerning equity-based pay and Board Members.

Highlights from 6 October 2014

GEO Netherlands Chapter Meeting

TOPIC
The Do's and Don'ts of Changing Plan Administrators
In the Dutch share plan market, we currently see many issuing companies changing from one plan administrator to another. Some of these changes are necessitated by recent market developments, while others result from a change in business needs from the issuer's side. But whatever the reason for the current market shift may be, it certainly provides a unique opportunity to share with you the lessons learned by companies who have recently changed plan administrators or even have just gone through the process of selecting a new administration provider for the first time.

To facilitate this, four issuing companies who recently experienced such a process of change agreed to provide their valuable insights on the subject. All four of these companies were accompanied by their respective plan administrators, so that the topic was addressed from both the issuer's and the provider's point of view. Practically, this was achieved by having two panel discussions, i.e. an issuer panel and a provider panel.
