  • Changes to the taxation of individuals—in particular, changes that would affect non-resident taxpayers
  • A new investment tax credit for software acquisitions for corporate taxpayers
  • Concerning the value added tax (VAT), an exemption for the management of specific types of insurance funds
  • Concerning an exchange of information upon request from foreign tax authorities, a right for taxpayers to file a claim with Luxembourg courts to contest information orders from the Luxembourg tax authorities

These measures would be effective 1 January 2018, once enacted.

A decrease in the rate of corporate income tax to 18% (excluding the contribution to the unemployment fund and municipal business tax) has already been enacted in Luxembourg tax law (in last year’s tax reform) and is also effective beginning 2018.
