In the past few years, MDDP and Loyens & Loeff have organized high-end seminars about the Polish and Dutch tax developments. These seminars are specifically focused on cross border investments from the Netherlands into Poland. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we will not be able to organize a physical seminar this year. This year we are organizing an on-line meeting that will take place on 2 December 2020 from 10.00 CET to 12.30 CET.
