Feb. 24—The Netherlands intends to terminate its social tax treaty with Morocco, according to a vote by the Dutch Parliament Feb. 17.
The social security convention between Morocco and the Netherlands initially was signed in February 1972. In 2015, discussions between the two countries led to a new social tax agreement. With the new social tax agreement signed but not formalized, the Moroccan government insisted benefits be extended to those living in Western Sahara. The Netherlands does not recognize the annexation of the territory by Morocco, leading to a breakdown in negotiations.
Morocco has until July 1 to renegotiate before the Netherlands formally announces the abolition of the treaty, spokesperson for the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment, Friso Fennema, told Bloomberg BNA Feb. 24.
“We hope the [Moroccan] government wants to talk or negotiate,” Fennema. “It is not our first option to cancel the agreement,” he added.
If formally canceled, the agreement will cease to apply from Jan. 1, 2017.
