Impact of reforming the tax credit for green investments

The Court of Audit published an audit report on the reform of the tax credit available for green investments on 2 September 2014. The report is one in a series entitled Zicht op bezuinigingen (Insight into Spending Cuts). In it, the Court explains the practical impact and social consequences of various government measures taken to improve public finances.

This present report considers the savings the government has achieved by reforming the taxation of green investments and compares the actual savings with the government´s estimates. It also considers how much capital private investors have invested in green funds since the government took the measures.
