As a private trader you don't pay taxes on your earnings in the Netherlands.
You only pay for an fictional return on your capital above 25000 euro/per person. This fictional return is 4 % . From this return, you pay 1/3. Example : capital on your bank account is 50.000 euro. You pay 25.000 X 0,04 X 0,33= 333 euro/year.

i know in NL you are taxed 30% assuming an average gain of 4% on all your savings
so you pay 1,2% (4% 0f 30%) on your entire capital regardless your gains or losses .... the problem is (as i know) you can't do trading as main profession ... i mean ... i trade for a living and i have not other sources of income ... with over 200 trades x month ...

... as my knoledge I will be taxed (as private) as income (not capital gain) at 33% more or less ...
don't know if one trade through a company, wich type, licences (i assume trading througha company qualifies you as professional, so maybe licences are needed) and costs ... would be awesome knowing more about it

can you provide some links since look like you are trading from NL? Thanks!
