Exploring tax haven Amsterdam

4 September 2016

In 2012, I mapped the geographical evolution of Amsterdam’s trust offices. Since 2006, many had changed their name or moved to a different location, resulting in four major concentrations: Zuidoost, Prins Bernhardplein, Zuidas and Naritaweg.

The other day I ran into a new map (pdf) of tax haven Amsterdam. Judging by this map, Amsterdam’s tax avoidance geography hasn’t changed much since 2012. The map was posted online by Action Aid on occasion of their AMSTERDAM TAX TOUR - THE BIKE EDITION. Sounds like fun and I would’ve have loved to cycle along, but unfortunately it coincides with a previous appointment.

Incidentally, Wired did a global tax avoidance map, which also features Amsterdam.
