From a direct tax standpoint, the primary measure of the AIFMd law is the full tax transparency of the SLP for Corporate Income Tax (“CIT”), Municipal Business Tax (“MBT”) and Net Wealth Tax (“NWT”) purposes. This means that no taxation will be applicable to the profit realised by the SLP (assuming that the GP does not hold more than 5% of the capital of the SLP).

In addition, the distribution of dividends by a SLP is not subject to withholding tax.
