The Netherlands still offers a favourable fiscal climate to international groups of companies and individuals. Our country is frequently chosen to accommodate international legal structures. To prevent abuse of fiscal rules the Dutch government has put in place a number of regulations and legal structures. The same regulations are applicable in many countries. The specific laws that are applicable are the Wwft (law for the prevention of money laundering and financing criminal activities) and the Wtt (Supervision of trust bureaus). Under these regulations TCS-Groep have to follow a strict client acceptance procedure. TCS-Groep have to identify their clients and the ulimate beneficial owners, the origin of the cash flows involved and the objectives of the business. This procedure has to be completed before a service agreement can be entered into.
TCS-Groep wish to conduct their business operations in a sound and upright manner and work on the basis of a professional handbook that translates all applicable laws and regulations into daily practice. This policy aims to encourage all parties involved at all levels to respect social values in general, and act in accordance with the rules and regulations that apply to TCS-Groep in general and more specifically to relevant supervisory laws and regulations. Following this policy also provides the way for procedures which in turn help to prevent violation of rules on integrity or to detect these at an early stage.
