Bus/Financial - Law: Taxation & Customs
Dutch term or phrase: deelnemingsverrekening
THis is a summary from a book about this subject. I am not really clear whether this is a credit or something else. Any ideas?

De deelnemingsvrijstelling voorkomt dubbele heffing van winstbelasting als een dochtervennootschap de gemaakte winsten uitkeert aan haar Nederlandse moedervennootschap. Deze regeling is van cruciaal belang voor het Nederlandse bedrijfsleven en wordt ook wel aangeduid als een visitekaartje voor het Nederlandse vestigingsklimaat.

Hoewel het vestigingsklimaat gebaat is bij een ruime deelnemingsvrijstelling, moet worden gewaakt voor kapitaalvlucht, zodat een uitzondering op de vrijstelling gerechtvaardigd is voor inkomsten die afkomstig zijn uit laagbelast mobiel kapitaal. Vanaf 1 januari 2007 geldt voor dergelijke inkomsten de deelnemingsverrekening.

In dit onderzoek staat de vraag centraal in hoeverre de toepassingsvoorwaarden en de werking van de deelnemingsverrekening recht doen aan genoemde balans. Hierbij wordt onder meer aandacht besteed aan de effectiviteit en proportionaliteit van de deelnemingsverrekening. Daarnaast komen de consistentie en de uitvoerbaarheid van de regeling aan de orde, evenals de verenigbaarheid met Europees recht.

(UK: business) investment relief

Close to Phil G's answer but NB this is an investment profits relief vs. group tax losses relief that can pass horizontally between subsidiaries or vertically between a subsid. and the parent cf. Organschaft in DE.

It matters not that the UK Enterprise Investment Scheme applies to non-doms, namely non-domiciliaries.

Example sentence(s):
  • Business Investment Relief was introduced by the Finance Act 2012 and took effect from 6 April 2012. It applies to foreign income and gains for anyone that falls into the category of being a UK resident but is also a Non-UK domiciliary.
